The Learning Pool Platform gives L&D teams the tools to design, deliver and facilitate Social Learning experiences whilst making the best of the content and systems they already own.

The Villeroy & Boch project not only demonstrates the power of social learning done right, but also shows how data captured in an LRS can be fed back into training programmes to improve course design and user experience, as well as helping to prove the impact on performance..  It is a true example of the power of social learning to any organisation looking to roll out learning to a multilingual audience on a global scale.

Speaking of the project, Manager International Sales Academy at Villeroy & Boch, Kirstie Carson said:

The Stream LXP (formerly Curatr) e-learning system has revolutionized our retail training. We have small retail units all over the world and can now deliver the same training to every colleague in their native language. The social aspect allows us to share best practice and makes our staff in the many remote locations feel truly part of the Villeroy & Boch world.

Ben Betts, CPO of Learning Pool:

We’re really pleased for Kirstie and her team that their achievements have been recognised by the industry – the award win is a great testament to the hard work they’ve put in over the last year. Where many organisations are still trying to come to terms with the idea of social learning, Villeroy & Boch really took to the approach and have achieved some fantastic results. We’re extremely proud of the success that they have achieved and that the Learning Pool platform was chosen tp help them reach their goals.”

The win continues a great run of success for Learning Pool who exhibited at Europe’s leading showcase of organisational learning and technology – Learning Technologies – earlier this week.
