eLearning Services

“What we learn with pleasure we never forget.” – Alfred Mercier

Traditional click-through information and quiz courses miss the ingredients for employees to relate to them, internalize the information, and apply it. Our approach on the other hand creates an engaging learning experience that leverages the power of scenarios and advanced animation to impart learning that will stick and get applied at work.

ETHICS HELPLINE BENEFITS

--------------------------------

“Anonymous reporting mechanisms play a vital role in reducing fraud and unethical activity.” - Jim Ratley, President, ACFE
Typically, a Company with a Third-party Ethics Helpline (TPEH) receives reports from between 1.2 - 2.3 % of the workforce strength that has access to the helpline (annually). This is substantially higher than the number of reports received without a TPEH in place.

TPEH Value Proposition
1 - Reduce Losses
Anonymous reporting mechanism reduces internal fraud losses by 61% on average. And the duration of fraud scheme by 7 months.
2 - Isolate and Contain Issues
Timely detection helps deal with internal ethics and compliance issues within the framework of your organization.
3 - Boost Employee Morale and Productivity
Healthy corporate culture improves employee morale, which in-turn increases productivity and retention of top talent.
4 - Improve Compliance
Comply with the new Companies Act 2013 (clause 177); SEBI Clause 49 (IV), SOX Section 301(4) and sector specific guidance using global best practices.
5 - Improve Corporate Governance
Effective communication and reporting on ethics is a key element of good governance and drives your culture of integrity.
Integrity Matters Differentiators
1 - We Make It Work Effectively
Just having a helpline is not enough. We help put in place a number of Critical Success Factors so you meet or exceed global benchmarks in ethics reporting. This increases the utility/RoI of the system for you as the client.
2 - In-house Contact Center
Our in-house contact center delivers a much higher quality of communication than outsourced ones used by others. Additionally, we do not use translators, which eliminates call hang-ups and ensures critical information is not lost in translation.
3 - Highly Responsive Client Service
In-person consultation and ongoing engagement with you ensures program success and quick alignment with your internal processes and evolving needs.
4 - Data Protection
We evolved from an Information Security consultancy with deep expertise in data protection and digital privacy which we use to secure your data.
5 - No Conflict of Interest
As a pure-play provider, we have no conflict of interest with Statutory Audit or Advisory / Investigative Services. This helps maintain objectivity and independence. A pure-play service is much more comprehensive and robust.
