Creating a code of conduct policy and printing out several copies for your staff is easy, but getting your staff to actually read and understand multiple documents has proven to be a real headache for compliance officers and staff alike. For successful implementation to have a chance, personalised and engaging training is needed.

of the unit
Ensure each user commits to upholding each relevant policy
Code of conduct training aims to communicate to your staff the sort of behaviours expected of them in order to uphold your organisation’s values and help your organisation’s culture thrive. The training usually covers topics such as workplace harassment, discrimination, conflicts of interest, confidentiality, and ethical decision making, among others.
Is code of conduct training mandatory?
In many organisations, code of conduct training is mandatory for employees, volunteers, and members. This is to ensure that everyone is aware of their responsibilities and obligations, and to promote a culture of integrity and ethical behaviour. Failure to comply with the code of conduct can result in disciplinary action or other consequences. The specific requirements for code of conduct training will likely vary depending on the organisation, industry, or jurisdiction.
Why is code of conduct training important for your company?
Code of conduct training is vital for employees to know what is expected of them and a successful code of conduct that is followed by all employees, from leadership to each and every worker, is an important part of building an ethical, inclusive culture at work, as well as to ensure staff comply with legal requirements and protect the company’s reputation.

How to make code of conduct training interesting
Code of conduct training will be most interesting when it is relevant, interactive and engaging. Also helpful is training that uses real-life examples and case studies and multimedia to ensure the training is visually appealing. The training should also be as concise and to the point as possible, focusing on the key principles and areas that are most relevant to the participants. By incorporating these elements, code of conduct training can be made more interesting and engaging, increasing the likelihood that learners will retain the information and apply it in their day-to-day working lives.
