Why is compliance important?
There are many laws, rules and regulations that businesses need to comply with. This includes taxation, workplace health and safety, employment laws, and more. Communicating these requirements, including ensuring deadlines are met and important documentation is lodged, is essential for your company to avoid compliance breaches and potential penalties.
Why effective communication is needed for compliance
When employees are not aware of or don’t understand the importance of your company’s compliance obligations, it can lead to significant issues. Employees often receive more emails each week than they can open, read and respond to. Research has found 69% of employees are overwhelmed by the amount of email they receive. Without effective communication you risk failing compliance activities.
Important factors to include in compliance communication
Simply sending an email or placing information on the intranet won’t ensure that employees see or action what is being asked of them.
• Use multiple communication channels to ensure message penetration
• Use more effective channels like DeskAlerts
• Communicate regularly about compliance requirements
• Sending reading and acknowledgment receipts to keep employees accountable.
