  I want to corrupt-proof my employees. How do I spice up my compliance training?
  Answer:
Chances are, your employees have enjoyed several seasons of “The Office” and appreciate its humor. One way to retain their attention while training them on serious matters is to throw in a little humor of your own (or that of others).

Here are some suggestions:

  • Unleash your hams. Identify the comedians on your payroll (if you don’t already know them) and let them loose with a video camera. Tell them to make short videos about bribery, conflicts of interest, or other compliance-related topics. Give them creative license. Be sure to view their videos before you show them to the rest of the staff.
  • Try RealBiz Shorts. You’ve heard of The Second City, right? The comedy troupe also has a business side, Second City Communications, which created a series of video shorts about ethics and compliance, msnbc.com reported. SCC recently teamed up with Corpedia Corporation to launch a series of life-sciences compliance videos as well.
  • Consider Resonate Pictures. We first learned about these ethics and compliance training videos from consultant Jason Cupp’s blog, and we decided to look for ourselves. Check out “Aggrieva” Season 2, Episode 4, where Kevin creates a new buzzword: “blamestorming.”
