Almost all UK legislation, such as GDPR, the Criminal Finances Act 2017, the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 and the Bribery Act 2010, has extra-territorial reach. It is therefore critical to an international business’ global compliance plan that all staff are made aware of the laws, wherever they are and whatever language they speak. Failure to show that your staff across the globe have undergone the correct training can result in large fines and a damaged reputation.

The EU’s Fourth and Fifth Directive are the most recent EU-wide AML regulations to have come into force. Each country has transposed the Directive into its own AML regulations and staff around the world are required to train on the latest regulations.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
GDPR’s reach is global, as any company anywhere in the world that offers goods or services to anyone in the EU is required to comply. Businesses across the EU and the world have been hit with massive fines since the directive came into force in May 2018. Training that teaches staff how to recognise and avoid GDPR breaches, stay compliant with regulations and report any breaches that do occur will help companies identify and mitigate the risks of any data breaches, as well as take action where necessary. The regulation’s global reach means that organisations must have training and reporting options available in multiple languages.
The Criminal Finances Act, passed in April 2017, requires staff to be trained on tax evasion as part of a business’ “reasonable procedures” to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion. This is a defence against the new corporate offence of failure to prevent the criminal facilitation of tax evasion, and a company can be prosecuted for this offence if its staff or contractors help someone evade tax anywhere in the world. To ensure your organisation and no one on your staff is facilitating tax evasion, it is crucial to provide staff with tax evasion training. Therefore, it’s essential to provide training in different languages so that it will be accessible to employees anywhere in the world.
Employees have a duty of care to their staff with regard to health and safety, and this includes mental health. Whether mental health conditions are preexisting or develop on the job, and whether the problem is connected to work-related stress or not, employers must address the mental health and wellness of their employees and make reasonable adjustments where relevant. If you have offices around the world, you may need training that can be translated into different languages. VinciWorks’ mental health course can easily be translated and adapted to suit users in different countries.
Code of Conduct
This is a complete build-your-own code of conduct course that allows admins to choose exactly what to include in the training: branding, modules etc. This includes the option to easily add modules specific to different countries or industries, which may need to be translated to other languages.
