Developing high quality employee training is a must for most organisations, and especially for those in highly regulated industries, such as Finance, Law, Health, Aviation etc.
Here we signpost some of the top regulatory / legal compliance training providers for helping companies and other organisations to stay on the right side of their industry’s legislation and best practice guidelines.
Because employees often find legal compliance training courses tedious, it is important to deliver learning in a way that is engaging and relatable to an employee’s work environment so they will actually retain and apply the training content.
Structured legal compliance training can be performed on-site, at a training provider’s venue or through an elearning platform. Compliance eLearning is often the most cost-effective training option, but some programmes are more suited to classroom training.
Below we’ve listed a few training providers that can help you with developing and delivering legal compliance training courses in your organisation.

Well-trained employees perform better, are less likely to leave the organisation, achieve higher customer satisfaction and improve the organisation’s bottom line. Not only is training important for long term success, but it is often also mandatory due to laws and industry regulations that apply to your business.
In many countries, legislation and regulations require employee training on topics such as health and safety issues, harassment. In the US for example, an employer can be held liable for a sexual harassment incident if they haven’t exercised reasonable care to prevent and stop any form of harassing behaviour in the workplace. One of the most important techniques to prevent such behaviour is through a relevant training programme.
