The Challenge

British Sugar was no stranger to e-learning when they joined the team at Learning Pool.

Already keen users of online learning resources for its staff, the company was, however, outsourcing most of its projects, which created a host of issues including long production times and inflexibility when it came to personalising content. If British Sugar wanted to customise a module to suit the company’s needs, it meant a long back and forth process between its L&D team and a third-party contractor to make even small amendments. 

When it came to looking for a new supplier for its business-based online training content, it was Learning Pool’s clear-cut sense of cooperation and community that convinced British Sugar we were the right company for them.

The Solution

British Sugar has made excellent use of our Leadership Skills collection, speeding up its e-learning production and increasing levels of both user engagement and personalisation. Thanks to the high quality of training and support provided by Learning Pool, British Sugar felt confident in our understanding of exactly what it was the company needed. 

Learning Pool offers future-proofed e-learning, which for British Sugar means not only are all the topics it needs covered but it can rest easy knowing that should there be any updates to important laws, legislation, or business standards, the content will stay on top of an industry that’s constantly moving. 

The ease of use and range of the customisation options offered within even our off-the-shelf catalogues is also a huge plus. Long gone are the days of drawn-out communication with a third-party e-learning designer: with Stream Authoring, British Sugar can change all the details it needs in order to personalise its content to its learners, hassle-free.

The Deployment

Lessons can be tailored easily to fit any section of the business, which means that SMEs are now taking it upon themselves to make specific lessons that fit their team and their issues. All of this has been sleeker, quicker, easier, and much more low cost than outsourcing to a third party, and allows the L&D team at British Sugar to jump into designing and implementing relevant, personal e-learning content with both feet.
