Direct & Indirect Risk Reduction

There are various ways direct and indirect risk reduction can be tied to training. What are the various compliance training programs you have and what purpose do they serve the company? Who is responsible for tracking compliance? What could you provide them to help proactively manage that risk? What could they provide you to help monitor for alignment to compliance objectives?

Here are some resources to help you identify direct and indirect ways to quantify risk reduction at your organization:

  • Some ways to measure the reduction of risk include:
    • Reducing frequency: what ways did we reduce the frequency of risk. How did your training directly or indirectly affect those frequencies? Compare post-training to previous training or yearly progress.
    • Reducing consequences of certain activities. The measures can be of a technical, operational, and/or organizational nature. Choosing the types of measures is normally based on a broad evaluation, where risk aspects are considered. Emphasis should be put on an integrated evaluation of the total effects that any risk-reducing measures may have on the risk.
  • Podcasts around the topic of compliance such as the ones suggested in this compiled list here: https://mco.mycomplianceoffice.com/blog/compliance-podcasts-you-should-listen-to
  • Checklist for the 7 Elements of an Effective Compliance Program under the framework established by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG)

Supporting Your Workforce

When developing training, create learning programs that provide context, and not just the content. The material should reach and support your diverse learner populations. At the same time, engage those individuals to meet them where they are to develop specific competencies. Some of the ways to address competencies include:

  • Content curation specified towards desired competencies, like SmartPath by OpenSesame.
  • Pre-post survey
  • Programs for continuous improvement
  • career pathing
