Tesco elearning programme wins award after delivering “stunning” training
Posted on Dec 15, 2016
NEWS: A dynamic digital training programme at Tesco that is helping to deliver grocery code compliance has won a major award.
Tesco’s Groceries Code Adjudicator Report and Recommendations module, created with elearning company, Sponge, won the silver prize for compliance at the Learning Technologies Awards 2016.
Tesco introduced the training in the spring this year to retrain colleagues to ensure that they were Grocery Code Adjudicator compliant.
Using a mixture of elearning, face-to-face training, coaching and system guides, Tesco was able to deliver training to nearly two thousand finance staff and food buyers in less than three weeks.
In the awards citation, the judges said:
“The response was a thought through design approach that challenged behaviours and delivered cultural change in the supermarket’s relationship with its suppliers. With great use of Learner Voice data and analytics and a campaign-based communications approach, this project was a stunning achievement in the face of an extreme challenge from the regulator.”
Sara Mathews, Head of Product Capability at Tesco, said:
“Our Legal and Product Training teams worked together to develop an effective solution that was engaging for colleagues and met the recommendations of the regulator.”
Leading digital learning supplier, Sponge created an elearning module and a video capture of Tesco’s face-to-face training as part of the campaign.
The Learning Technologies Awards saw more than 400 entries from across the world with Tesco’s category - ‘Best use of learning technologies to ensure compliance’ - among the most competitive.
Sponge has worked with Tesco since 2014 and previously won a bronze award in the same competition for delivering compliance training for the retailer.
