As expectations for training and learning continue to shift, and enterprises seek new ways to generate excitement around the learning process, mobile apps are becoming a must-have strategy to help employees connect in new ways -- with the material, with instructors and with each other.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 16, 2018
Guidebook, Inc. and Aggreko today announced that Chief Learning Officer has recognized Aggreko with Gold in the 16th annual Learning in Practice Awards. The award, which recognizes industry leaders who have demonstrated excellence in the design and delivery of employee development programs, honors Aggreko for its innovative work using mobile technology to create a collaborative and engaging digital learning experience. Using Guidebook’s mobile app platform, Aggreko will offer over 300 courses to more than 2,000 employees across the globe by the end of the year.
“When it comes to learning, we are always innovating. We’re excited about our success using mobile apps to evolve from a traditional training model to a truly interactive learning experience, and we are thrilled to be recognized by Chief Learning Officer for our progress in this area,” said Walter Davis, Global Learning Systems & Delivery Manager. “With the ability to easily create and distribute mobile apps built on the Guidebook platform, we’ve found a way to bridge classroom training with the hands-on work environment, while also making training more inspiring.”
Mobile apps offer a natural interaction with devices employees are already comfortable using, helping them feel more connected and invested in training. Aggreko’s branded app built on the Guidebook platform extends the learning journey beyond the classroom, transforming how employees connect, communicate and learn. All handouts and handbooks that were printed are now accessible via the mobile device and employees have digital knowledge – even pictures and memories from the in-app social feed – in the palm of their hands. Instructors can easily update the app throughout the learning journey, from pre-course discussion questions to help employees start to engage to ongoing, post-course reference materials.
With less printed materials and no need for extra devices, Aggreko has been able to use resources more efficiently and create an interactive environment. The company is committed to innovation for better training and will continue to invest in enabling a digital, integrated, and centralized approach to learning.
“Aggreko is setting the gold standard for using mobile apps to successfully modernize the corporate learning experience,” said Scott Lavelle, VP of Marketing, Guidebook. “As expectations for training and learning continue to shift, and enterprises seek new ways to generate excitement around the learning process, mobile apps are becoming a must-have strategy to help employees connect in new ways -- with the material, with instructors and with each other.”
