5 Reasons Why Employees Are Tuning Out Your Compliance Training

5 Reasons Why Employees Are Tuning Out Your Compliance Training

Annual compliance training - words that can strike fear into your employees' hearts. Unfortunately, annual compliance training is often met with low enthusiasm.

9 Legal Training Questions with Lydia Godfrey

9 Legal Training Questions with Lydia Godfrey

I sat down with Lydia Godfrey, Associate Legal Counsel at Ardon Health in beautiful Portland, OR, to talk about compliance and training in the specialty pharmacy industry. 

Lydia was born and raised in Detroit, MI, but escaped the Midwest cold for California. She eventually made her way to Portland, where she has spent 15 years of her career. 

Lydia has a ton of experience having worked as a law clerk, in private practice and now in-house. She's a classically-trained music aficionado, having learned to sing and play piano, guitar, flute (though somewhat unsuccessfully - her words, not mine!), violin and clarinet.  

Some of Lydia's hobbies include swimming, bicycling, hiking (ed. note: I think all Portlanders are required by city code to enjoy biking and hiking) and exercise!

Without further ado, here's our interview with Lydia!
