How one company leveraged its online training platform to build a pharmaceutical compliance training program

When Purdue Pharma Canada began reevaluating its goals for its employee training programs, those in charge of optimizing the processes already in place (and building new ones) knew the old learning management system (LMS) simply wouldn’t do.

Flexible content support for professional development at all stages of employment

Some interesting challenges arose in 2011, and not a moment too soon. In an organization where pharmaceutical compliance is paramount, Purdue was faced with an outdated online training platform that could no longer handle everyday demands.

“When I joined [Purdue] in 2011, all our evaluations were paper-based,” said Mihai Csaki, senior trainer for the company’s Health Solutions division. “I looked at the LMS and realized it was too basic.

To start, Purdue Pharma Canada needed an LMS that could integrate with the company’s HR system to automatically maintain the user database based on actions taken within the HR system. This, along with single sign-on, simplifies the onboarding process for new hires who previously had to remember multiple usernames and passwords.
