A strong foundation
Bruntwood is made excellent by the hard-working people who operate behind the scenes - from office staff to on-site facilities teams. With a diverse workforce made up of 1,200 people - all with different roles and responsibilities - they needed learning content that would cater to everyone’s individual needs, while aligning with their overall priorities as a business.
Prior to launching Thrive Content, Bruntwood’s learning content was not engaging, branded, or in-line with their company ethos. It was time to shake things up with a comprehensive, off-the-shelf solution that would captivate, inspire and educate everyone in their teams - no matter their responsibilities.
A new development
Thrive Content proved to be the perfect solution.
The ready-made learning resources fit Bruntwood’s needs as a business - and then some. Along with content about work-related topics and systems Bruntwood uses every day, Thrive also provided a wealth of information on subjects like DEI, Wellbeing and Sustainability. As a company whose ethos is rooted in building up their local communities in a conscious and sustainable way, this content really struck a chord with Bruntwood’s people.
For those team members whose work involves physical labour, Thrive’s content on Asbestos Accreditation, Harness and Lanyard Training, and On-Site PPE has been absolutely instrumental.
In the words of Stacey Leslie, Facilities Team Lead at Bruntwood: "if they didn't have access, they wouldn't be able to carry out their day-to-day roles."
To support their commitment to wellbeing, Bruntwood has a dedicated Wellbeing Lead in Leanne Mullen. She specialises in making sure Bruntwood a great place to work, and Thrive Content has been an invaluable part of her efforts.
During Stress Awareness Month, Leanne ran a campaign using Thrive’s pre-built Stress Management content. This was a huge success, which Leanne puts down to the fact the content was attractively packaged into one ready-made and easy-to-complete pathway made up of several courses.
"We found that colleagues are much more likely to do several courses when it's packaged up in this way... it's been really successful."
