In our first post on burst learning, we covered five key benefits of using burst learning, an approach to ethics and compliance training that utilizes engaging five-to seven-minute products to accomplish any number of an organization’s training objectives.

In this post, we cover four more benefits, drawn from NAVEX Global’s new Burst Learning User Guide:  11 Meaningful Ways to Use Burst Learning in Ethics & Compliance Training and Awareness.

Benefit #6: Reduce Seat Time

Despite increasing compliance risks—and decreasing amount of time allotted by most organizations for training—compliance professionals must find ways to deliver distilled, effective training. Burst learning creates just such an opportunity.

Benefit #7: Emphasize Key Risk Areas

The risks each organization faces are as unique as that organization itself—and some risks, such as bribery, corruption, or retaliation, can be important to emphasize with some or all employees. Bursts can be used to help establish a year-round culture of compliance for particular areas of risk, while regularly reminding employees of expectations and standards of conduct.   

Benefit #8:  Respond Quickly to Incidents or Emerging Trends

As online media and social media outlets disseminate information at the speed of light, small problems can become big problems fast. Burst learning allows organizations to nimbly respond to issues as they arise, reinforcing company policies quickly and memorably. 

Benefit # 9: Train Third Parties and Other Nontraditional Audiences

A variety of laws in the U.S. and in the U.K. hold organization’s legally responsible for training not only their own employees, but business partners as well. Bursts help enable organizations to do laser-focused training on the issues their third party stakeholders will encounter most frequently, while also creating a legally-defensible paper trail.
