LRN Engages the Global Enterprise - From the Boardroom to the Breakroom - in Business Ethics and Corporate Compliance with New O

LRN, a company that helps businesses develop ethical corporate cultures, today announced new and enhanced online, offline and experiential learning offerings. These solutions enable companies to adopt a holistic approach for inspiring principled performance across the global enterprise, from the boardroom to the breakroom.

These enhancements to LRN’s market-leading education solution help companies overcome several key challenges in ensuring effective and engaging business ethics and corporate compliance education. They also allow companies to generate new and added business value and competitive advantage by ensuring not only legal compliance, but that responsible conduct becomes part of their daily business practice.

Rising industry standards for corporate behavior and regulations require greater measurement and effectiveness in how companies educate their various employee groups. Online corporate ethics and compliance education programs are widely accepted because of their ease of distribution, but meaningful employee retention of the curricula can be difficult to achieve on a global scale. Most companies have mastered tone-from-the-top, yet board members and executives must evolve high-level principles into real-world business practices. LRN helps companies engage globally diverse workforces using a blended approach that offers multiple channels and mediums to create a more flexible, adaptable and impactful learning environment.

An Engaging New Approach to Online Education

LRN’s new online educational approach provides a simple, logical and memorable way for companies to engage their employees in their values, as well as legal and ethical standards of business conduct. New and enhanced offerings reduce cognitive overload and eliminate course and program fatigue. In addition, the offerings encourage greater adoption of material by mapping education length and depth to a learner’s needs and position, such as introducing short video simulations so employees learn by seeing and experiencing key concepts, and offering bite-sized courses that build skills over time and provide an ideal solution when education topics are reintroduced year over year.

A Stronger Adoption of Principles with Experiential Learning

Understanding that adult learners retain 10 percent of what is read, 20 percent of what is heard and 80 percent of what is experienced, LRN has made immersive learning part of its overall blended learning approach. LRN’s new experiential learning solutions complement its online education offerings via custom, creative and branded materials that facilitate instructors to easily lead meetings that encourage greater personal and team engagement.

Board Member and Executive Leadership Workshops Drive Business Performance

Infusing corporate values and principles into a company’s culture begins at the executive level. LRN’s new highly interactive leadership workshops engage board members and executives to increase their understanding of why values-based corporate cultures are important to their businesses, as well as help them to better experience the theory at work and ultimately turn that theory into practice.

“From the boardroom to the breakroom, companies must not only communicate their values, they must truly engage their employees in their values and inspire them to live them,” said Dov Seidman, chairman and CEO of LRN. “LRN is helping organizations win the hearts and minds of their employees, managers and leaders. In turn, we are helping to shape organizational and individual behaviors that delight customers, partners and other stakeholders, enabling companies to outbehave their competitors.”
