Programme structure & resources



Code of conduct

Gone are the days of writing codes as dense compliance manuals with pages of legalese and corporate jargon. We’ll help you design your code of conduct to be a clear, engaging, and informative guide that reflects your culture and inspires people to do the right thing.

Communication strategies

Compelling E&C communications are every bit as important to programme excellence as the quality of E&C training. Together, we’ll develop a targeted communications strategy that delivers simple, focused messages through multiple channels using authentic voices—whether it’s about DEI, data privacy, or another key topic.

Curriculum design

Building a winning culture requires efficiency and effectiveness. We’ll analyse your current E&C training approach—from onboarding to skill development—as well as your desired business outcomes, then provide a roadmap for improving the impact of your learning and communications.

Policy simplification

Our 2024 research shows that simplifying policies to make them more accessible is crucial for increasing employee engagement and building strong programmes. Click here to speak to one of our experts.

Culture & leadership


Ethical culture and programme assessments

Most E&C programme assessments concentrate on checking programme structure, processes, and controls against a chosen benchmark. The LRN Ethical Culture & Programme Assessment helps you identify what drives employee behaviour, decision-making, and performance. By measuring levels of trust, organisational justice, willingness to speak out, and other critical indicators, we’ll help you analyse the health of your ethical environment.

Board of directors

Boards are key players in driving excellence in culture, ethics, and compliance. But research demonstrates that effective oversight and appropriate training at the board level is too often lacking. Through facilitated board sessions, research, and interactive training, we can help your organisation bridge the gap.

Risk assessment & monitoring



Programme effectiveness

The central lesson from our ongoing research is that a values-based approach to governance, culture, and leadership correlates strongly with greater business outcomes and reduced risk. We’ll help you identify and implement high-impact practices that drive programme effectiveness and meet regulators’ expectations. Click here to speak to one of our experts.

Strategic program evaluation

Ensure your E&C programme works in practice—not just on paper. Rather than creating a perfunctory checklist, our Strategic Programme Evaluation provides you with a holistic roadmap for assessing programme maturity and effectiveness against regulatory guidance and best practices. Led by our advisors with chief ethics and compliance officer backgrounds, the evaluation process is tailored to your unique environment, operations, programme maturity, marketspace, and budget.
