After visiting DFS’ showrooms to get a feel for the company and it’s values, Learning Pool created a suite of three bespoke, interactive e-learning modules which were intended to engage learners. Distributing training in this way has saved time for both the organisation and employees as they are able to complete training in store rather than travelling to Doncaster.
A key requirement for DFS required the modules to be highly customised to its brand’s look and feel, as it didn’t want something off-the-shelf. The e-learning needed to reflect its own values for an on-brand user experience and it trusted in Learning Pool to successfully execute this.
The accessibility of online training allows DFS to easily re-train employees, for example Interest Free Credit has to be legally passed on a 12 month cycle.
Due to the wider adoption of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) it was also important for the e-learning course to be multi-device, so employees could access learning on their iPads. With the constant need to refresh skills, e-learning has become a simple solution to decreasing the time learners spend away from store, as they can partake in training at home, at their point of need, and even on their own device!
One of the key benefits for DFS utilising e-learning for compliance is that it ensures DFS is always fully compliant. Having a robust system in place means the organisation is able to fully monitor and track all training and can easily keep a record of what employee has taken the appropriate compliance module they need for their job role, as well as amend any changes in legislation easily via the e-learning.
The ability to use these compliance modules with every employee throughout the organisation was also an exciting feature for DFS. Using the same learning content, delivered in the same way, sends out a more thorough message to learners rather than face-to-face training which can easily vary in consistency if the trainer decides to put a different slant on the subject.
