(Core Competency #4: Organizational Engagement) With increased regulatory compliance obligations, institutions find it easy and efficient to rely on out-of-the-box training programs that deliver consistent online training courses on a range of topics. But is this effective? Employees who complete the same required training course and sign the same policy attestation year after year often click through quiz answers only searching for the right one to get the task done. This process does not ensure that the trainings are effective, and compliance efforts may be indirectly harmed through these types of redundant and ineffective trainings. To supplement these trainings in a more effective and employee-centered manner, institutions can support employees in fully understanding their specific compliance requirements through customized and in-person trainings; one-on-one engagement; creation and utilization of a "Tone at the Top" supported by a "Tone at the Middle"; and use of multiple types of contact, including in-person, online, passive, group, video, and written materials. Most importantly, institutional leaders should enjoy the freedom to discuss the values unique to their campus and take advantage of their campus culture to actively enhance employee engagement in a comprehensive regulatory compliance program.

As a result of participating in this session, attendees will:

+Understand the business, legal, and culture-based arguments that support a comprehensive compliance and ethics program
+Define specific tools for moving beyond minimum ethics and compliance to a more robust program with effective employee engagement and training, plus top-down support for compliance-based initiatives
+Identify ways to empower all employees across campus to engage in voluntary compliance through ownership and accountability for compliance initiatives
