Learning for Employee Development at L'Oréal
CrossKnowledge designed an easily accessible and intuitive self-training system that adopts new methods, solutions and training formats to respond to the specific needs of the company. The ‘Learning for All’ platform was designed in two user modes: the self-guided “on demand” version, and structured courses conducted by a training manager. This Learning Suite portal is user-friendly, the learner workspaces are engaging, and there is a social and collaborative dimension to the system. “We like the fact that the thinking behind the solution and the choices CrossKnowledge has made are focused on the user experience”, said Reich.
Another request was made specifically for off-the-shelf content, and CrossKnowledge was selected to work on the “management and communication” segment. As Laurent Reich explains, “Their proposal is the most extensive and innovative in pedagogical terms. It doesn’t just focus on e-learning modules, there are also videos we like very much, especially the format called ‘The Team’. We like the fact that the thinking behind the solution and the choices they’ve made are focused on the user experience.”
