The Compliance Learning Management System (LMS)

Last week Gyrus Systems earned a “Top 10” award from Talented Learning in the “Best Employee Compliance LMS” category. Gyrus Systems is pleased to have its efforts recognized by a well-respected organization like Talented Learning. In 2015 we focused much of our development upon features that increased our customer’s ability to meet their compliance challenges, but why is compliance important?

According to Talented Learning, “You can’t get away from where LMSs started. Employee and contractor compliance is a big problem for many organizations. Federal and state and local jurisdictions enact training, safety and harassment regulations and then audit for compliance. Non-compliance results in penalties and fines. The more jurisdictions an organization does business within, the bigger the compliance management challenges they have.

Industries such as pharmaceutical, biomedical, manufacturers, transportation, energy, financial, retail and many others are all required to deliver mandatory compliance training and be ready to prove it to auditors at any time. Compliance LMSs are admin focused and have skills, competencies, audit trails, electronic signatures, strong ILT management, facility and resource management, broad content support and powerhouse reporting.

Non-compliance with OSHA and other regulations costs money, as described here, here, and here. Combine the monetary penalties with a predicted increase in criminal penalites (prison) and ramped-up enforcement efforts and you can see that non-compliance with OSHA regulations can result in serious negative consequences for employers. On the other hand, compliance with OSHA regulations with an effective Training and Development program increases safety by reducing accidents and results in the decreased potential for civil and criminal penalties.

An important part of any Training and Development program is the Learning Management System (LMS) because of its ability to centralize management of all types of instructor-led, elearning, virtual classrooms, document and video-based training and to provide reporting and analytics on the back-end. This LMS functionality enables companies to more effectively manage training over manual methods, which improves OSHA compliance.

By recognizing Gyrus Systems with a "Top 10" award in the “Best Employee Compliance LMS” category, Talented Learning has affirmed that GyrusAim's compliance features are on-target for companies that much achieve regulatory compliance.

Here is what makes Gyrus Aim Rank among the Top Compliance Training Programs:

  • Reporting

    The compliance training management software developed by Gyrus Aim has an efficient reporting system that monitors the training process and provides reports and feedback at regular intervals. This helps in identifying the underlying issues and mitigating risks at an early stage. For employee training, the automated process helps in reinforcing the training and keeping a check on the performance.

  • Ability to form groups

    The training for different sectors differs in some way. This means all information and learning courses are not relevant to every employee. The compliance training management software’s feature to form groups helps in organizing and classifying all the learning material. The material is made accessible to the respective departments.

  • Online Certification

    The LMS offers certification after course completion. Certificates work as a verification for a specific skill set. The compliance training management software by Gyrus Aim awards a certificate to the employees after they pass certain criteria, like achieving a certain score and passing all the assessments. The certification helps employees to advance in the career, improve their efficiency, enhance their skills, and gain professional credibility for their skills.

    Other certificates like a certificate of achievement boost morale and encourage employees to perform better.

  • Assessment

    We believe in improving memory retention using assessments. This helps in spotting learning gaps, understanding the skills and levels of each employee, and deploying the right course for them. Regular assessments help in keeping a check on each employee’s performance and progress. This also promotes a learning culture within an organization. With time-bound assessments, quizzes, question polls, etc. the learning is made engaging and fun.

  • Webinars

    It allows scheduling and hosting webinars. Webinars are an economical solution if used efficiently and effectively. The online platform eliminates expenses that an organization might incur in hosting classroom sessions. Webinars allow teams to reach a larger audience without any restriction on the number of participants and location. The teams divided by location unite at this online platform easily. The live chat and feedback feature helps the organization to increase interaction, engagement, and productivity. The LMS also allows to schedule and host pre-scheduled webinars.

  • Mobility, Flexibility, Scalability

    One of the best parts of any compliance training management software is the ability to access it anywhere anytime from any device. Whether you are lounging in your room or traveling on a flight, the lessons are accessible at all times. Learning is not restricted by any external factors. The management can easily create engaging content using a variety of in-built tools that GyrusAim offers in its compliance training management software. These tools help in creating interactive PowerPoint, videos, webinars, and assessments. The software can be used to include a large audience. Every time you hire, you don’t have to worry about conducting training sessions. The LMS reduces such expenses.

  • Regular Analysis for Improvement

    The system monitors staff performance to ensure that they are on the right track. It keeps a check on engagement rates, assessment results, under-performing and well-performing employees, and even on the resources that perform best. This helps in understanding the needs of the learners and in developing the right study material to maximize learning and productivity.
