About This Episode

In this episode, Tom and Ronnie look at the common questions that pop up about using comedy in compliance training and communications…and debunk them all!

  • Well, we’re a conservative company!
  • We don’t do humor here or we tried humor once and it didn’t work.
  • Employees already get tons of communications, so we don’t have an appetite for more compliance communications.
  • We need to focus on our core training first.
  • How do you measure that?
  • We’re global so humor doesn’t work.

Good questions with even better answers. Blending entertainment with learning works!
