Juggling Act:

Balancing the Training Expectations of the Manufacturing Industry

Walter E. Johnson

The U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines, as well as regulations from other federal, state, and local enforcement agencies, consider training and education an essential component to deterring misconduct such as fraud, bribery, and corruption. The rapid evolution of technology provides easier access and multiple methods to deliver training to the workforce. Although multiple training methods meet the varying learning preferences of the workforce, the disclosure of training content and training attestations to a regulatory agency remains limited. This session will review multiple approaches to deliver training and achieve buy-in from business operations on schedule, frequency, and delivery method. We will discuss the importance of understanding how completed training data will be shared with a regulatory agency during the development stage.

In this session, you will:

  • Review successful strategies to meet training requirements while minimizing impact to the manufacturing process.
  • Discuss successful approaches to achieve buy-in from business operations.
  • Build regulatory readiness—the ability to respond with consistency to regulatory inquiries about training content when utilizing multiple training methods.
