As a leading engineering firm in consultancy, planning, project management, and construction supervision, Vössing has been implementing infrastructure projects of every scale for 40 years.
With over 600 employees at 20 locations in Germany and abroad, Vössing plans and designs national and international projects, from concept all the way through to implementation. Through the exhaustive network of branches, the Vössing engineers are always close to the customers, and working with them, develop tailor-made solutions to the highest specifications.
Vössing came into existence 40 years ago, so training hasn’t always been 21st-century style. Before we decided that an LMS was the right fit for us, we delivered user-requested training only. But it all took place on site, so, trainers had to move around to train our employees.
As a result, learning was way more expensive and time-consuming. Not to mention, managers couldn’t be aware of the learning material that had been covered.
So, the search for an LMS began.
For Vössing, the challenge was the speed of change the construction industry is experiencing these days on the journey to Building Information Modeling (BIM). To help employees cope with this tempo and catch up, we thought about professionalizing our learning within the company.
An LMS sounded like the perfect solution.
We immediately started generating content to train our employees on compliance as well as in the skills we wanted them to master.
But it all came down to three main challenges we had to address:
All these rules might sound quite simple to someone familiar with the terminology. But to find them all in just one service isn’t that easy. With eFront, all our wishes were fulfilled.
Today, our team is able to take their training whenever they have the time. This way they invest the right amount of energy and attention without worrying about other tasks they need to fulfill. Our training has become abundant and we’re in a position to equip employees with all the skills we want them to earn and also retain for future use.
This is how eLearning and eFront have helped the company: We can now think about the skills the organization is going to need in the future and train employees in these skills.
And everything runs smoothly as an integral part of the intranet employee experience.
“The next step is to add more engineering content via SCORM from sources like LinkedIn Learning and others. Getting access to knowledge and learning in an easy and convenient way is a key aspect of Vössing’s digital workplace. The future builds on us.”
