Social Compliance

E-Learning Social Compliance

Promoting equal opportunities, fair working conditions and preventing illegal employment

Alongside legal considerations, questions of ethics and social issues are becoming increasingly important in the world of work. This is the case, for example, when it comes to the fair treatment of colleagues and employees, not to mention the legally compliant recruitment of temporary workers. As well as this, companies are focusing even greater attention on the quality of working conditions throughout their supply chains. Standards, guidelines and laws exist on both a national and international level in order to ensure that each employee is able to work in humane conditions.

Nowadays, companies are not only evaluated in terms of their financial success – their treatment of employees, domestic and foreign suppliers and temporary workers has increasingly come under public scrutiny. Negative headlines can sour a company’s public image, impact its opportunities in searching for qualified staff and even result in boycotts among clients.

We support companies in exercising their social responsibility and organising awareness-raising measures among employees with the aid of our new ‘Social Compliance’ e-learning programme series. The three overarching topics – equal treatment, fair working conditions and preventing illegal employment – are designed for international use and are self-contained training programmes. The content is based on multinational guidelines and is therefore suitable for training employees on European regulations that must also be implemented on a national level. Different lessons refer to country-specific laws (for example, the German Equal Treatment Act (AGG) and the Modern Slavery Act in the UK).

Contents of this e-learning program

The e-learning programme consists of multiple, self-contained lessons. Depending on whether you want to use the standard product or would like to customise it, you can pick and choose the lessons you want. You can find more on ‘Lessons’ and ‘Lesson types’ here.
