XXL Sports & Outdoor’s Head of Training and Development, Jon Harald Johnson explains that to successfully reach all of their highly distributed teams with timely and relevant training, XXL chose to implement eloomi as their new learning management solution.
XXL Sports & Outdoor has a mix of full time and part-time workers as well as employees working remotely because of frequent COVID-19 lockdowns. This has further strengthened the need for a retail learning tool to build engagement and develop personal and professional skills.
XXL Sports & Outdoor wanted to expand their XXL Academy from onsite training only to online training being the primary part of a new learning management platform. Switching to e-learning in combination with blended learning within the eloomi learning management software covering the entire employee journey has helped XXL become an even more attractive employer.
