5 You-can’t-afford-to-mess-this-up Employee Trainings You Can Outsource

October 16, 2023

When it comes to professional development, there are some types of employee training that require navigating the conversation with care and expertise to avoid misunderstandings or unintended consequences.

These trainings can cover regulatory requirements, complex industry standards, or even potentially sensitive situations. They call for nuance to keep communication lines open among the entire staff. Sometimes addressing difficult subjects can be intimidating for small businesses because business owners don’t always know how to handle them. If this is you, fear not. In this article, we will discuss some benefits of seeking a certified professional employment partner to help with developing and implementing training and five critical ones that can be outsourced.

Partnering with a certified professional employment organization (CPEO) automatically increases the expertise available to address the subject.

The first benefit to any company partnering with a CPEO to create training programs for their organization is the level of experience and expertise that becomes available to them. A CPEO with multiple experiences handling potentially volatile situations will be able to share what does and what does not work. For example, at Syndeo, our people bring a high level of professionalism to handling complex industry rules and regulations as well as sensitive topics with care. Sometimes, business owners can find themselves dealing with HR topics that they don’t know much about or the best way to handle them. Partnering with a CPEO like Syndeo gives you access to the know-how to address situations while at the same time customizing your training to fit exactly what your organization needs.

Partnering with a CPEO saves time and money.

In addition, outsourcing training can save you time and money by not having to reinvent the wheel. Our growing list of trainings at Syndeo includes a robust range of topics that many organizations face. In addition, we offer access to technology that allows our clients to easily keep track of attendees for compliance purposes. Having an outside organization host sensitive training is also an effective way to maintain an objective lens on the situation.

Partnering with a CPEO offers flexibility.

Business owners dedicated to expanding their companies find that outsourcing employee training offers the flexibility required to concentrate on business growth, all the while ensuring their employees receive essential training. This strategic approach allows organizations to scale efficiently and adapt to evolving industry demands.

Here are five types of critical training that Syndeo can help you with today:

1. OSHA compliance training.

OSHA trainings are designed to educate employees and employers about workplace hazards, safety regulations, and best practices to prevent accidents, injuries, and illnesses. HR professionals from Syndeo are well-versed in OSHA standards and regulations for your industry, ensuring that the workplace meets the required safety criteria. Additionally, proper documentation of trainings and safety procedures is essential for compliance and can be used as a reference for future audits. Because workplace hazards can change over time, coordinating regular refresher training sessions keeps employees up-to-date on the latest safety protocols. Planning, scheduling, and overseeing multiple trainings can be overwhelming for busy business owners like yourself. Fortunately, we at Syndeo regularly schedule and host these types of training for many clients across various industries.

Contact Syndeo today to talk about how we can help you maintain compliance with OSHA trainings for your company.

2. HIPAA compliance training.

Within healthcare organizations and other entities that handle healthcare-related data, HIPAA trainings protect an individual’s private health information (PHI). Healthcare organizations must, by law, ensure compliance with HIPAA regulations in how they handle employee and patient data, manage policies and procedures, and oversee training efforts related to PHI protection. These trainings can be organized for administrative staff, clinical personnel, and any other roles that interact with patient information. Because of the meticulous level of detailed attention required, outsourcing HIPAA training to a CPEO partner can add a level of assurance that ensures not only compliance but also the highest standards of data security and confidentiality.

If you're looking for assistance in coordinating and scheduling your HIPAA trainings, consider reaching out to Syndeo to see how we can help ensure compliance and data security for your organization.

3. Custom safety training.

Maybe your company needs to develop a safety training specific to your organization or you may need to evaluate current safety trainings to ensure they are delivering the best results. Developing these trainings in-house can be a distraction for business owners who don’t have the time it takes to devote to fully developing and implementing the training. In that case, finding a knowledgeable partner who can create a custom training program that suits your needs can save a business owner valuable time and money while getting employees the training they need.

Every day, Syndeo works with our clients to develop tailored trainings and protocols that serve their employees to help ensure their safety. Reach out to Syndeo to discuss the unique training programs we can create for your organization.

4. Active shooter training.

Active shooter trainings are a specialized training that prepares employees for what to do in the case of an active shooter or other violent intruder threat. They are designed to enhance situational awareness, assess options for survival and minimize casualties during a critical incident. An active shooter clinic creates comprehensive emergency response plans, conducts drills, and trains employees on how to react appropriately.

If you need expert assistance in coordinating and scheduling active shooter training for your organization, contact Syndeo to explore how we can help enhance your workplace safety and preparedness.

5. Sexual harassment training.

An often uncomfortable topic, sexual harassment trainings can help foster a safe and respectful work environment for your organization. They are a key component in educating employees about what constitutes sexual harassment and emphasize the importance of mutual respect and professionalism. But few business owners are prepared for the conversation before it rears its ugly head. Seeking to outsource this training can help you and your organization remain objective in a conflict scenario.

Getting professional guidance on how to handle this sensitive topic can help you feel comfortable addressing difficult situations. Contact us today to discover how Syndeo can assist in coordinating and scheduling sexual harassment training tailored to your organization's needs.
