Cyber Security is of growing critical importance to individuals and organisations of all sizes as cyber-criminals attempt to exploit weaknesses in order to access valuable data.

Equality & Diversity

All employees in an organisation need to have a clear and consistent understanding of equality and diversity and how an inclusive organisation can enable improvements to customer service and to productivity.

Risk Management

All organisations have an objective and a responsibility to manage risks effectively. Staff awareness of risk management enables organisations to reconcile risks and rewards, take informed decisions about exploiting opportunities and have increased confidence in achieving their priorities.



All managers and their staff need to understand the organisation’s role under the GDPR legal framework and have awareness of their own day-to-day responsibilities for data protection. Digital learning provides the opportunity to provide a clear understanding of: Who is responsible for GDPR compliance? What are the risks and costs of non-compliance ? What types of data exist and how can the processing of data vary? What are people's rights and responsibilities?

Our latest insights


Why is staff awareness of mental wellbeing so important?

So many things impact on our mental wellbeing, whether in the workplace or in our personal lives. Raising staff awareness around mental wellbeing can help create an open culture where individuals are more prepared to talk to each other.


The importance of creating an organisational culture which allows staff to open up

The workplace has evolved from being a place where employees simply turn up, do their job and go home each day. People want more. They want job satisfaction – to feel valued, supported and engaged. Most of all, they want to feel safe. Not just safe from physical injury, but safe from humiliation, bullying and punishment for things that are out of their control. As such, more and more organisations are focusing on psychological safety – creating a safe environment for employees to open up.

In this article, we’re looking at how psychological safety can benefit your organisation, particularly its impact on mental wellbeing


How lockdowns have had an impact on mental wellbeing awareness

Meritec look at how mental health of employees has been affected by the lockdowns of 2020 & 2021. The lockdowns of 2020 and 2021 affected almost everyone in the UK, and the impacts of those lockdowns are still being seen today.
