Broadcat’s 2023 in review!

The year is almost over, Team Broadcat, and you know what that means: every company everywhere is coming up with the “best of” lists: best places to go on vacation. Best new restaurants in your state. Best celebrity hairdos. We’re slightly biased, but we believe our “best of” list is … the best. So, without further ado (drumroll, please 🥁), here’s Broadcat’s “best of” for 2023!

Broadcat’s most popular products! 

We couldn’t pick just one, so we’re giving you a breakdown by category, starting with …

Awareness materials: Give wisely this holiday season

Clearly all of you were feeling some end-of-year pressure because this one pulled ahead in the final minute! Kudos for sticking to your ethics during the holidays by showing your teams EXACTLY what kind of giving is allowed. 🎁

Job aids: Why should I care about compliance?

Who’s going to advocate for yourself better than you, amiright? From keeping everyone safe to maintaining company values, three cheers for informing your org on exactly why your work is important. Hip-hip-hooray! 🌟

Leader-led toolkits: Email/Talking points that pair with Helpline Flowchart

The helpline can be a confusing place—not just for reporters, but for the folks at the top who need to encourage the reports. We’re proud of you for empowering your managers and other leaders with the info they need to make it a bit less intimidating to speak up. 📣

Modules: It’s a tie! 

What to do when an employee raises a concern 

Good for you for taking a holistic approach to cultivating a speak-up culture! It’s not just about your entry-level employees: Managers need some speak-up support, too, and this module guides them through the delicate task of handling a sensitive situation. 🌻 

Ethics Ambassador Onboarding

Sounds like “work smarter, not harder” was your New Year’s resolution because this module is all about leveraging your greatest resource—your people—to foster a culture of compliance. (Even better? Your ambassadors don’t have to sit through an hours-long training, either.) 💪

Mini-modules: How to manage conflicts of interest

We're stoked that so many of your people have industry-related interests! By showing your teams that interests are A-OK (but not reporting them isn't), everyone gets participation trophies.🏆

Templates & Toolkits: Training Effectiveness Tracker

Ummm… did we mention something about advocacy before?? There’s standing up for your role, and then there’s standing up for your role WITH STATS. And with this template, it’s easy to find the deets that actually matter. Keep it up! 📈  

PS: This one’s on us! Zero tokens.  😼

Videos: How to speak up when you're a bystander

This one warms our hearts! Being a bystander can be difficult, so we commend you on empowering your folks to speak up, even though they might not be directly impacted. Here’s to upholding the value that really matters: respect.  💜
