Kallidus to deliver learning programme to 24,000 employees
Construction suppliers The Travis Perkins Group have appointed talent management solution providers Kallidus to enhance the learning and development of the group's 24,000 employees.
The company operates 16 businesses across different trades within the building and home improvement market from more than 1,800 sites nationwide.
The first phase of the project is the implementation of the Kallidus Learning Management System (LMS) which is due to go live in January 2013. Kallidus' LMS will support and enhance the learning and development requirements of the group's employees, while also enabling learning and development to be more closely aligned with business strategy across the business.
Melanie Cooley, group training manager at the Travis Perkins Group, said: "We chose Kallidus because they are the market leader with a clear understanding of our industry and because they were able to provide us with a competitive and comprehensive one-stop-shop solution for our learning, performance and talent management needs.
"The Kallidus solution will mean that we're able to take a more strategic, proactive approach to learning and development across the Group. The system's strong reporting functionality will provide greater transparency and visibility, giving learners and managers much more control over their learning."
The Kallidus solution supports The Travis Perkins Group's new internal site, a dynamic and interactive platform which will drive learning and development for everyone within the Group. The new system creates a complete learning environment with elearning, classroom learning and informal learning in a single location, delivering a better learning experience for all employees.
Rob Caul, CEO of Kallidus, added: "We are delighted to be working with the leading name in the building and home improvement industry. Kallidus learning and talent suite will support the Travis Perkins Group's investment in its people now and in the long-term. Travis Perkins is leading the way in its approach to providing learning and development for all, and in the way it plans to engage its learners and improve performance through its new internal platform."
"We look forward to helping The Travis Perkins Group develop talented people and improve business effectiveness now and in the future."
