With employees spread across the UK, Europe, India and Canada, the creative company needed a learning platform to surface employee expertise and share it across the entire company, connecting those in different locations.
When looking for a new learning solution, Sumo found the more traditional learning management systems didn’t have the social features they needed to fulfil their vision. Their key objective was to cultivate a culture in which learners are teachers, and everybody can take ownership of their own personal development. They also required a platform that could become their workplace hub for leaders to get their message out to the whole organisation.
Additionally, as a gaming company, UI and UX are at the heart of Sumo. So, it was crucial their learning system was engaging, easy to use and intuitive. They put a few learning platforms to the test and set out on a Thrive pilot with 45 employees. Jenny Muhlwa, Learning and Development Manager at Sumo Group, commented:
“Unanimously, Thrive came back as our provider of choice because of the great user experience, it was so easy to use and understand. We put it out to our people and asked how they felt about it. People said it was so intuitive and I’m going to be coming back to it regularly, which was the key point for us.”
