Onboarding programs for new employees typically include reviews of standard operating procedures (SOPs) and other compliance information. Ensure greater understanding by localizing this content. For example, depending on their roles, your R&D team members may require Good Clinical, Laboratory and Manufacturing Practices (GCP, GLP or GMP) training. Increase compliance and understanding by removing cultural barriers and offering localized programs. This approach ensures a common foundational understanding across team members, regardless of their location while reducing the risk of non-compliance with applicable regional laws and regulations.
Employee training and education programs present a unique opportunity to foster a culture of accountability and compliance. They also enable managers to gauge employee understanding of company policies as well applicable laws.
You may encourage your team members to broaden their knowledge base with localized learning about important topics such as industry standards (CDISC, eDMS Reference Model, eCTD, TMF Reference Model, etc.). A strong foundation in these fields will help team members to understand their role in the larger drug development process while also producing better quality deliverables.
Visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learners demand the presentation of this type of content through different channels. Disabled learners require additional adaptations (audio transcription, Braille etc.). But all learning types benefit from localized content. If students can easily identify with content in their native language, they can move on to digesting and applying concepts more quickly. This efficiency can lead to quicker and cost-effective onboarding and greater individual and team productivity.
