True Office Learning, the creator of groundbreaking adaptive e-learning technology that measurably improves performance in organizations around the world, announced that it has partnered with award-winning filmmakers Twist and Shout Media, a KnowBe4 company and creators of the compliance sitcom Tuesdays with Bernie, to continue its mission to humanize compliance through the power of storytelling. The addition of Tuesdays with Bernie to the firm’s Coach product line furthers its goal to transform compliance training from a one-and-done, boring, linear experience to a data-driven behavior-changing ecosystem aligned with how the human brain is wired to learn and retain information.

“Most companies fail to humanize their approach to ensuring compliance, especially during times when employee attention spans are low,” said True Office Learning CEO Neha Gupta. “Sending policy reminders filled with legalese or using PowerPoint training and hoping the information will stick is just futile. We want to meet the learners where they are—from adaptive e-learning to meet their need for simulation and personal experiences, to a Netflix-style series to remind them of what is right without lecturing them. Tuesdays With Bernie accomplishes just that, and we are excited about this partnership with Twist and Shout and the KnowBe4 team to drive meaningful change in organizations.”
Tuesdays with Bernie is a sitcom series that helps viewers navigate complex ethics and compliance risk topics by watching the trials and tribulations of a loveable ex-con re-entering the workforce. Comprising six seasons that cover a wide variety of risk topics, the series comes with turnkey internal marketing resources—including a rollout plan, email templates, posters, life-size cutouts, and commercials—making it easy for compliance teams to deploy.
“When we started developing Tuesdays with Bernie, we were new to compliance as a sector, and we couldn’t believe the training was so old-school,” said Jim Shields, creator of Tuesdays with Bernie. “What we soon realized is that employees needed context for the training they were receiving. So we wanted to tell stories, build characters one can get invested in, and produce the type of content that people wanted to consume, not just what they were required to complete. There’s something powerful in that, and we look forward to more organizations experiencing these rich characters.”
