At SAI360, we don’t author Ethics and Compliance (E&C) courses to win awards, but when we do win one as prestigious and meaningful as this year’s Anthem Award, it encourages all of our learning and experience designers to know we’ve done something a cut above the expected. Recently we were delighted to hear that our course, “Interactions and Communications with Healthcare Providers: Know Your Risk” was selected to receive a Bronze Anthem Award in the category Employee and Learning Development.
The course was an amalgam of a number of new innovations that SAI360’s Learning Team has been working on to strengthen employee engagement, shift learner behavior, and provide actionable course analytics to our clients. Utilizing the latest in full-screen, high-res graphics, as well as storytelling and task-driven design, we created a new global pharmaceuticals series designed to help employees understand the significance of interacting purposefully with healthcare professionals. The resource also featured SAI360’s proprietary, award-winning Know Your Risk assessment structure which provides important insight into learners’ knowledge and confidence both before and after completing a course.
The award-winning course was the first of three episodes in the series. Approved by subject matter experts, the episodes are not only appropriate to those in the US adhering to the PhRMA Code, but applicable to global markets as well. Using SAI360’s new EDITOR tool, the course can be easily edited so that specific regulations and company policies can be added. The ability to add new paragraphs means episodes can also be personalized by region, audience, and role, as well as reference specific relationships or internal processes. The EDITOR tool can run on any platform, allowing SAI360 to bring together the universality of ethical behavior in a single piece that can be applicable to all.
In the end, if you have a story to tell, people will listen. If you have images and interactions and media that is relatable at the same time it is innovative, people will watch. If you have data, people will have the information they need to direct change, demonstrate program effectiveness, and secure their learning budget for next year’s training needs.
We are honored to have received the Anthem award again and look forwarding to sharing demos with individuals in the pharmaceutical, med tech and life science industries who are curious about this advanced integrated learning and analytics experience.
