Perkbox introduces innovative learning technology called magpie to member benefits

London, UKLearning NewsFiltered

Last month, Filtered announced its new partnership with employee engagement platform Perkbox to deliver personalized learning recommendations to members.


Perkbox, Europe’s fastest growing employee engagement platform, has partnered with Filtered to launch the patented AI product magpie, a learning recommendations engine that matches the right learning to the right learner, on the Perkbox platform.

Using machine-learning algorithms, magpie matches the relevant content to each individual user. Using an intuitive chat function, Perkbox users get personalized learning recommendations in minutes, simply by answering a few questions. 

Magpie contains over 500+ bitesize content pieces that cover 40 base competencies from expertly curated, high-quality public domain sources such as Harvard Business Review, TED and Forbes and many more.

Marc Zao-Sanders, CEO of Filtered, says: "It’s becoming increasingly important to firms that employees are engaged and happy. Learning is an important driver and indicator of engagement and happiness. And that’s why we’re excited about this partnership with Perkbox which brings the right content to the right employees to inform and inspire, open minds and realise opportunities."

Saurav Chopra, CEO of Perkbox says: "With employees spending only 5 minutes a day learning without interruption, finding time at work to dedicate to learning is clearly a challenge. Imagine what could be achieved if everyone spent only 10 more minutes more a day learning new things...We’re excited to be partnering with magpie to make ‘learning on the go’ as simple as possible for our users. We hope it will improve this statistic and get more employers and employees motivated and engaged in improving their learning trajectory."

More about magpie is available via Filtered's website.
