Leading Insurance company partners with KnowledgePool to help transform their learning

This flagship company has appointed KnowledgePool as its principle provider of learning services. KnowledgePool will act as their Managed Service Provider (MSP), managing all learning activity and operations through a single channel to maximise return on their training investments and ultimately improve the performance of its employees. As one of the UK’s leading insurance businesses with multiple brands, products and distribution channels, Learning and Development (L&D) is invaluable to them. With this in mind, all external training for their 13,900 UK employees, will be sourced, managed, administered and evaluated by KnowledgePool, freeing up their in-house L&D team to focus on the more value-added and strategic tasks. This flexible and secure partnership will enable this new client to increase their effectiveness and maximise their L&D budget. Solution highlights include:

  • Independent training procurement objectively advising on best-of-breed solutions, negotiated with consistent terms and preferential rates to save money
  • Efficient learning administration, providing a one-stop-shop specialist technology, including the people and processes necessary for consistent data capture and reporting
  • 70:20:10 ‘ethos’ providing professional advice and guidance to encourage the use of informal and blended learning
  • Using learning analytics expertise to make sense of the activity and evaluation data collated to provide learning optimisation with future activity
