Taleo Corporation the leading provider of on-demand talent management solutions, today announced that its Taleo Learn platform has been selected by Mortgage Advice Bureau, one of the UK’s leading independent mortgage and protection brokers, to help reduce costs and improve the delivery of training and development services.
With over 350 advisers located across the country, Mortgage Advice Bureau is one of the UK’s most respected mortgage and protection brokers, offering expert advice and consultancy services to thousands of customers every year.
By adopting Taleo Learn, Mortgage Advice Bureau is able to reduce the cost of their specialised training courses by delivering them direct to employees online through a series of short sessions. The platform will be used to deliver a variety of training services to head office staff, estate agency employees and mortgage brokers as well as an induction course for new employees. Previously this induction process was delivered through a week long residential training course. By using Taleo Learn to deliver the same training, Mortgage Advice Bureau will gain an initial cost saving of approximately £2,500 per person. The Taleo Learn platform is fully branded as a Mortgage Advice Bureau site and can be configured to deliver bespoke training content over a series of short online sessions.
“Taleo Learn is going to revolutionise the way that we train and develop our employees,” commented Lisa Janson, Head of Learning and Development at Mortgage Advice Bureau. “By delivering so much of our training remotely we can significantly reduce costs, freeing up budget to invest in our in-person development programmes. The solution also allows us to deliver our own development content in a fast, user-friendly and engaging manner, helping our employees access the resources they need in a way which suits them, thereby increasing take-up rates for the training courses we offer.”
“Employee development has never been more important for businesses or employees,” commented Adam Brenner, Group Vice President EMEA, Taleo. “As organisations look to grow out of the recession it is vital that they are doing all they can to make the best use of their existing talent. Having an accessible and engaging development system like Taleo Learn in place does not just reduce costs, it also allows businesses to grow the skills they need from within, helping to increase employee engagement and boost retention rates. We are delighted to be working with Mortgage Advice Bureau and look forward to building a strong partnership with them in the coming months.”
