BAI Launches Training Insights for Compliance Training

CHICAGO – April 23, 2019BAI, a nonprofit independent organization that delivers the financial services industry’s most actionable insights, announced the launch of BAI Training Insights, a new innovative tool in the BAI Learning Manager designed to help financial services leaders develop and document training plans more efficiently and effectively.

Planning for annual compliance training is often a manual, time-consuming process involving various departments across an organization. During the assignment planning process, leaders may assign the same courses across roles within the organization, regardless if they are applicable to all positions. This approach can lead to over- or under-assigning required training, placing financial services organizations at risk with compliance regulators.

BAI Training Insights equips leaders with the ability to identify the appropriate amount of training for specific roles, enabling regulatory training to be easily curated for each position within the organization, saving significant time spent training. This unique solution also provides clear documentation to help leaders minimize risk and prepare for regulatory examinations. Additionally, BAI Training Insights utilizes comparative analytics to enable leaders to understand how peer organizations address their regulatory training.

BAI developed Training Insights to address customer concerns about properly documenting regulatory risks, decision making on assignment of the proper courseware and benchmarking these decisions against their peers in the industry. BAI Training Insights automates and streamlines the complex process of course assignment and enables cross-organizational collaboration and engagement to help financial services leaders build a comprehensive, role-based compliance training program.

“Financial services leaders are looking to maximize the return on their investment in compliance training in the most efficient way possible, which is why BAI is providing a new, innovative way to address this industry need,” said Ed Marcheselli, managing director of BAI Learning and Development. “BAI Training Insights allows organizations to document the risks while comparing their training program with a synthetic peer group, using analytics that only BAI can provide.”
