A purpose-powered transformation
Elior is one of the UK’s leading contract caterers and an award-winning people business. Their 10,000-strong team delivers food to 1,200 sites - including care homes, schools, workplaces and stadiums. Their purpose? ‘To enrich lives, everywhere, every day.’
But, they had a problem
Their traditional, face-to-face L&D approach began restricting people’s access to training as they expanded UK-wide. Busy schedules and travel times meant numbers dwindled. For those who did attend, it was difficult to retain a whole day’s learning, and the travel and accommodation costs were huge. What’s more, managers were struggling to get the training resources they needed to support their teams. So Elior set out to overhaul their personal development and make it accessible and achievable for everyone - no matter their location, tech fluency, or commitments.
A modern, social solution
With an emphasis on connecting remote teams, creating a culture of collaborative knowledge sharing, and making learning resources available on-demand, Thrive ticked all the boxes. After the launch of Thrive@Elior in May 2021, everyone receives a personalised learning experience that suggests content to consume and colleagues to connect with - based both on the skills they already have, and those they’re looking to develop. Any time. Any place. Any device.
