“LinkedIn Learning has been a really valuable tool in our cultural improvement journey at Dungeness B power station. Specifically, it’s supported a genuine learning culture within our leaders and helped foster curiosity. We’ve seen several local “learning loops” being self- created by our leaders to support their learning journey which clearly demonstrates the value add this tool has brought to us.”

“We went on a journey to get LinkedIn Learning set up, we went on a journey to get LinkedIn Learning implemented in a couple of weeks and we went on a journey to ensure the learning licenses were activated.”

“That sense of togetherness and trust is so crucial to be a high performing team, but more than that, it’s made this my most fulfilling role at EDF in 16 years. Rolling out LinkedIn Learning to more than 13,000 employees in 12 days (and winning an award for that) made me beam with pride at what can be achieved with some focus, encouragement and teamwork.”

“We’ve been tracking what our employees have been organically looking at and sharing. This has enabled us to spot trends really quickly. And promote this content to a wider audience. Which has actually resulted in the highest peak of engagement levels so far.”

“LinkedIn Learning is much easier to use than other platforms we’ve had for learning and development. There’s so much choice and variety of different courses. I also love that you can set a personal learning target. It really encourages me to log on, see what’s new and see what other colleagues are watching.”
