In the waning days of 2016, as we huddled around our board room fireplace with hot chocolate and crumpets, we took some time to reflect on a stellar 2016 and look forward to the incredible new innovations yet to come in the new year.
Traditionally VinciWorks has provided compliance training primarily to the legal sector. We proudly train over 20% of all UK solicitors and work with 60 of the top 100 global law firms.
In 2016 we expanded our corporate offering significantly and created courses that are tailored to many new industries.
This year we introduced the Corporate Compliance Suite, which includes courses on the Bribery Act, money laundering, information security, cyber security, diversity and the Modern Slavery Act. There are sector-specific courses for accountants, corporates, estate agents and financial services firms.
Other new courses
Another record year for course completions.
Anti-money laundering continues to be our most popular course family with over 25% of course completions. Bribery, information security, cyber security and data protection remain popular, with each garnering over 10% of completions.
Continuing on the heels of 2015, we had another fantastic year of growth. We invested heavily in building our team with expanded customer support, content and R&D teams.
One of VinciWorks’ competitive advantages is that we build our learning management system in-house, to the specifications of our clients. We add new features almost weekly and can accommodate many custom requests.
