Are you looking for the best available tool for just-in-time and social learning? There is a new e-learning tool designed to fit in with the way we all consume information daily, by accessing what we need when we need it, and sharing that information.
Take the example of Einstein;
Einstein was once being interviewed by a reporter who asked for his phone number.
“Certainly” replied Einstein, who proceeded to pick up the phone directory and look it up, before writing it on a slip of paper and handing it to the reporter.
Astonished, the reporter said, "You are considered to be the smartest man in the world and you can't remember your own phone number?”
Einstein replied, “Why should I memorise something when I know where to find it?”
He felt it unnecessary to memorise anything that he could look up in under two minutes. Now, relatively speaking, (pun very much intended) there was not a huge amount of information that he could bring to hand in under two minutes. Compare his resources to the wealth of knowledge we can get access to in literally seconds today. What would he possibly make of our ability to harness pretty much all human knowledge while waiting at a bus stop? Would he have held any information in his head?
At Inmarkets we have developed our approach to social and just-in-time learning and it is this that underpins our new GRC Manager tool. Click here

The Graduate Foundation College is an ambitious industry-led initiative to help young, unemployed graduates qualify as financial advisers and fill much needed positions in small and medium sized advisory firms across the country.
The College offers a structured programme of academic training and industry experience to bright, young and unemployed graduates in order to increase their employability as future advisers.
Participating firms who are interested in recruiting new talent but who cannot necessarily fund their initial training and induction into the profession will have access to these candidates as potential new employees.
The candidates will achieve an entry level standard into the world of financial advice and during the programme candidates will be introduced to a participating firm, which in turn provides invaluble insight and experience. At the same time, the firm can assess the employability of their candidate as well as build a potentially highly beneficial new relationship for the longer term.
The Graduate Foundation College has been developed by the Financial Skills Partnership in association with Aviva, Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), Inmarkets, Institute of Financial Planning (IFP), Just Retirement, Mymar, Calibrand, Personal Finance Society (PFS), Redland Business Solutions, Scottish Widows, Sesame Bankhall Group (SBG) and Tenet Group.
The Graduate Foundation College (pilot) is partly funded by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) and the industry bodies named above.Click here to find out more

This award is particularly special because clients must nominate candidates for the awards, detailing exactly why the company should be considered as the best training provider in the compliance domain. It is a testimony to the content, technology and service that Inmarkets continues to provide for firm-wide learning with its "Essential Learning" courses and for officer training with its GRC Manager.
Catriona Razic, a Director of Inmarkets said “Over the years we have delivered in excess of 5,000,000 hours of e-learning. In this time we have strived to push the boundaries with compliance e-learning, advancing both the learner experience and the level of analysis available to management. We are delighted to win this awards and would like to thank every one of our scores of clients who felt compelled to nominate us.”
A big thank you to all the customers who have nominated Inmarkets in the Best Training Services category at this year's Compliance Register Platinum Awards.

This months scenario, drawn from Transparency International’s "Doing Business Without Bribery", focuses on facilitation payments. Go to www.inmarkets.com
and click Login at the top right of the page to sign up for a free demo account to view the scenario.
Facilitation payments were in the news in the UK as the SFO quietly removed its guidance to reconsider its position on such payments and hospitality - with some commentators saying that it is getting ready to bare its teeth. http://www.complianceweek.com/sfo-website-removes-important-bribery-guidance/article/262512/
In contrast to the hardening stance of the authorities, for some corporate board members it's business as usual. In a survey by FTI Consulting (who have also collaborated with Inmarkets in the production of "Doing Business Without Bribery") released last week, nearly a quarter of company directors said the UK government is unlikely to prosecute offenders and that might bribe to win business. http://www.fticonsulting.com/global2/press-releases/united-states/economic-climate-pushing-companies-to-take-risks-with-anti-corruption-policies.aspx
Of course, the Bribery Act doubters are now a minority and most companies have taken a much more robust approach against bribery. Indeed, shareholder pressure and the desire to better manage risks due to financial crime, discrimination, health and safety etc. are motivating companies to take a more integrated approach to governance, risk and compliance. To support such initiatives, Inmarkets will be launching its GRC education program - GRC Manager, which is currently available only to Inmarkets clients.
In this month's scenario we will ask you to assume the position of a country manager for a company. In this capacity you will be asked to comment on situations - dealing with gifts, hospitality and conflicts - described by your team members and approve/reject their requests. As with previous scenarios, in every situation you will receive TI's advice on the best course of action after you select your response.

“Doing Business Without Bribery” has been developed by Transparency International with the support of FTI consulting and Inmarkets - the e-learning company. You can license this course for use in your organisation, customise it to fit with your internal procedures and corporate risks, and use it for awareness or practical training. If you would like to know more, please contact Laurence Tanti (email@example.com
