People are tired of boring compliance training, so organisations need to get creative to punch through compliance fatigue and engage individuals. But how might that be done?

Creative compliance is the focus of a webinar for L&D professionals hosted by The Learning and Skills Group (LSG).

Embedding ethical culture in AstraZeneca’s DNA looks at the real-life story of how the global biopharmaceutical company partnered with Sponge to help embed its Code of Ethics firmly into the organisation’s genetic make-up.

The online event was chaired by Don Taylor, renowned learning expert and chair of the Learning and Performance Institute since 2010, and presented by Louise Vamvoukaki, Global Sustainability Education and Engagement Lead at AstraZeneca, and Brayley Pearce, Learning Solutions Specialist at Sponge.

The webinar explains how creative compliance training has engaged over 60,000 AstraZeneca employees in more than 100 countries, so that they are living and breathing the company’s values and ethics through their everyday decision-making.

Results include:

From a survey of 2,200 people:
