RedHawk Communications, Inc., one of the world’s most experienced corporate ethics and compliance online training companies, announced today a continued relationship with Southern Company (NYSE: SO) to create a custom web-based ethics training solution for its entire employee base of 26,000.
Over the course of three years, Southern Company will educate its employees on how to act with “Southern Style”, the company’s pledge of dedication to superior performance and total commitment to the success of everyone the business touches. The training will focus on each of the three core values of Southern Style: “Unquestionable Trust”, “Superior Performance” and “Total Commitment”. Employees will discover the correct ethical behavior by using the Southern Style values and following an educational story. The story will be based on these values as well as real-life backgrounds and scenarios provided by Southern Company.
“We chose RedHawk Communications for their ingenuity in creating custom web-based ethics and compliance training solutions that go above and beyond the current standard. Customized to our company, the training will touch on each aspect of Southern Style and use real-life employee scenarios to make it truly engaging and easy to use for employees at all learning levels and job duties,” said Bob Frisbee, Workplace Ethics and Compliance Director of Southern Company.
“Our team is excited to continue our long-term relationship with an industry-leader like Southern Company,” said Mike Levine, CEO of RedHawk. “Simply put, the more relevant the content, the more effective the program. Rather than using an off-the-shelf ethics training approach, RedHawk will truly customize Southern Company’s training to perfectly fit their unique culture, resulting in higher retention rates and an enhanced learning experience for all users.”
