Engaging Employees for Peak Performance With
Personalized Learning

Fortune 100 Media and Entertainment Company

How a Blue-Chip Organization Where Training Is Critical Transformed Itself

At a Glance

A Fortune 100 company known for excellence in frontline training modernized their learning approach to make it mobile and adaptive, scaling to 100,000+ employees across hundreds of job classifications. The results have been numerous.

Confidence

Greater confidence that employees are truly prepared to perform their roles and real-time visibility into workforce readiness.

Efficiency

From improved speed to competency for new learners to cross-training with less effort and better utilization of trainers, learning is more efficient.

Better Engagement

Employees are more engaged -- acquiring and retaining more knowledge which leads to an increase in customer satisfaction

Adapt to the individual employee

Ability to know what each employee already knows and automatically adapt training to their skill level, allowing them both to perform their current role and expand into new roles more efficiently and effectively

Continuously Updated

Update training that occurs in the flow of work by serving up nearly a million edits to training material per year. The architecture allows this to occur far more efficiently, saving significant time for learners, trainers, and L&D staff

The attractiveness of the platform is its digital mobile experience, but the value is in its 'adaptive piece.' To know what workers already know and map that against what they need to know, then delivering the missing pieces eliminates so much wasted redundancy in our legacy one-size-fits-all training.
