When it comes to corporate training, the statistics speak for themselves. A significant 59% of employees face burnout, often precipitated by tedious mandatory activities such as compliance training.1 Meanwhile, companies boasting highly engaged workforces are reaping the benefits, enjoying a 23% increase in profitability.2
It's clear that a seismic shift is needed. And that's exactly what we're proposing. Compliance training doesn't have to be an arduous, check-the-box task. Rather, it can be a dynamic and engaging process that revitalizes your employees. This turns a routine requirement into a compelling experience that bolsters both compliance and profitability.
No more dull presentations or lackluster engagement. It's time to revolutionize compliance training, injecting it with new life and transforming it into a powerful tool for boosting employee morale, increasing engagement, and driving company success.
The traditional struggles with compliance training
Confronting the problems posed by traditional compliance training approaches requires us to follow a path of escalating consequences. Let's unravel this from the ground up, starting from the inherent dullness of the content and culminating in its broader impacts on the organization.
- Foundation — Monotonous presentation: Traditional compliance training often relies on bland, lengthy documents or presentations, leading to a lack of employee engagement from the outset.
- Level One — Poor retention: The result of this monotonous presentation is poor retention of key information. Employees are less likely to remember crucial details when they aren’t actively engaged.
- Level Two — Low completion rates: Poor engagement and retention cause tangible outcomes, like lower completion rates. Uninspired and unmotivated, employees may neglect to complete the training.
- Level Three — Increased risk: The next level of the funnel brings more significant consequences. With gaps in training and understanding, the risk of mistakes and policy violations increases, potentially leading to legal and financial repercussions.
- Level Four — Declining morale: The issues start to impact not just the organization's risk profile, but the employees' well-being. The obligation to complete dull training can lead to frustration and feelings of being undervalued, affecting overall morale.
- Apex — Behavior change failure: At the top of the funnel, we find the ultimate failure of traditional compliance training: its ineffectiveness in driving behavior change. Without true understanding and engagement, employees are unlikely to incorporate training principles into their daily tasks.
Gamifying compliance training: the how and why
At its core, gamification in learning involves applying game design elements to non-game contexts. It’s not about transforming learning into a game; rather, it's about leveraging aspects such as points, badges, leaderboards, and challenges to motivate and engage learners. This approach capitalizes on our inherent desire for competition, achievement, and social interaction — leading to enhanced engagement and improved learning outcomes.
When applied to compliance training, gamification has the potential to turn a traditionally mundane process into an engaging and stimulating experience. Imagine a compliance training module where employees earn points for correctly identifying potential compliance issues, climb leaderboards as they complete modules ahead of their colleagues, or unlock achievement badges as they demonstrate their understanding of complex regulations.
Through this dynamic approach, compliance training transforms into an immersive experience that team members actively want to participate in. Instead of being passive recipients of information, employees become active participants in their learning journey.
The benefits of gamifying compliance training are abundant:
- Gamification boosts interest and motivation, encouraging employees to participate fully in training.
- The interactive nature of gamified learning aids memory retention. When learning is fun and engaging, employees are more likely to remember the information.
- Gamification can drive competition among employees, leading to faster completion of training modules and higher overall completion rates.
- The immersive nature of gamified learning experiences helps employees better understand and internalize the principles they're learning, promoting real behavioral change.
- Turning compliance training into an enjoyable experience can boost employee morale, making them feel more valued and satisfied in their work.
