Starting the year as they mean to go on, THRIVE shares a range of new people policies and company initiatives to give back to their community and the L&D industry as well as some goals to aim for in 2021 and beyond.
Five free microlearning modules for L&D new starters
From today anyone in learning and development joining a new company can choose up to five modules from THRIVE’s microlearning catalogue for free. Emma Layton, Chief Operating Officer at THRIVE commented:
“New beginnings aren’t always easy. We want to help others in L&D kick start their new role in the best way possible. Hopefully, the content from our microlearning catalogue can bring even more excitement and help celebrate the success of others in our industry.”
With 170+ modules to choose from, L&D teams are able to select the topics that support their new strategy, form part of a learning campaign or simply fill any crucial content gaps.
THRIVE volunteer programme
Last year, THRIVE supported a range of charities and initiatives which helped them give back to their community and raise awareness of important issues.
THRIVE’s new volunteer programme gives their people the opportunity to give back to causes that mean the most to them. Each person at THRIVE can donate £1,000 to a charity of their choice after completing 25 hours of voluntary work throughout the year.
Sean Reddington, CEO at THRIVE commented:
“We truly believe to move forward we need to give back. Our team is so passionate about doing the right thing and I’m so thrilled to launch this new initiative that means each person can give back to a cause that’s close to their heart.”
THRIVE’s unlimited annual leave and flexible working arrangements mean that their people have the option to weave voluntary work into their everyday lives and find a routine that works for them.
Diversity, equality and inclusion
As THRIVE continues to grow, they’re committed to make diversity, equality and inclusion part of building their workforce.
With 50% of females in the senior leadership team and 17% of their workforce from a BAME background, THRIVE strives to support diversity across the business by bringing in initiatives to increase career pathways and accessibility to the technology industry, starting with the following:
More transparency with job descriptions and career pathways
Hiring policy review to extend the reach and accessibility of all new roles
Support more causes that increase the accessibility of roles in our industry, including women in learning, mentor black business and internship and graduate schemes
Conducting anonymous employee surveys every quarter and following up with teams to understand what the barriers are to them progressing at work
One to one conversations between THRIVE’s CEO and everyone in the company every year to gather feedback and understand what more can be done to support diversity and inclusion
In a world where trust and transparency are more important than ever, THRIVE has decided to publish their learning experience platform pricing and support an all-in approach to their products. This means there are never any hidden costs, instead everything’s included in one upfront price and there are no extra charges for services such as implementation, migration, training or hosting.
