Glencore’s Training Challenges
Glencore recognized that to effectively embed ethical behaviors as a strategic corporate and cultural objective, it would need to adopt a refreshed approach. One of the solutions to tackle this challenge was to work strategically with two key partners, Cornerstone and SAI360, to identify the training needs, design appropriate and engaging learning content, and deliver it to the target audiences in an impactful manner.
Turning to Cornerstone and SAI360
To address its training challenges, Glencore turned to Cornerstone and its expansive content partner network. Through this first move, Glencore implemented Cornerstone’s widely used Learning Management System (LMS) to digitally transform training across its workforce. The LMS offered Glencore the ability to group its employees in different categories, thereby allowing for targeted training assignments.
Combining Cornerstone and SAI360
This expert partnership has been pivotal to helping Glencore achieve its compliance training aspirations. Training content quality has risen to the standards the company was aiming for with more focus and relevance for its employees. Through SAI360, Glencore now offers four core courses for its employees: Code of Conduct, Anti-Corruption and Bribery, Conflicts of Interest, and GDPR/Data Protection and Privacy. These have each been customized to fit the unique needs of Glencore and are better targeted towards the employees who present the highest risk for each of these subjects.
