Thrive Learning, the award-winning and fastest-growing modern-day learning management system, has secured a partnership with French skincare company and pioneer in ecobiology, NAOS. With the end goal of enhancing the organisation’s learning culture from day one with an engaging, comprehensive and easy-to-use system, Thrive will be rolled out to 500 employees across NAOS’ three brands Bioderma, Institut Esthederm, and Etat Pur in the Middle East region from April 2024. 

Why Thrive? 

Thrive’s all-in-one learning platform will play an important role in the overall learning and development experience at NAOS with its easy-to-use, engaging and accessible programmes. Looking to strengthen its onboarding process, NAOS turned to Thrive to create an efficient system which will set new employees up for success and unlock potential from day one.

Allowing new starters to feel connected to the company regardless of location, Thrive creates the ability to effectively onboard new starters fully remotely. The NAOS x Thrive online learning platform will create a customised experience using data processed by AI, ensuring a tailored journey for each role, department, and level.  

Aysha Hayman, Lead of Learning and Development at NAOS, says:

“As the head of L&D in NAOS I had a clear mission; to revolutionise our current learning platform, merging simplicity with empowering content.

After several encounters with numerous different LMS providers, Thrive's all-in-one solution emerged as the catalyst for this transformation. We are looking forward to this collaboration and what it holds for our NAOSians Learners.”

Thrive’s content will ensure each employee is taken on an engaging learning experience which is accessible from any location, at any time. A key consideration to address the challenge of an organisation spanning multiple countries, cultures and languages. Continuous development will include in-role development, tools for the leadership and management teams, product refresher courses, and introduction to new products.

Sean Reddington, CEO and Founder of Thrive, says:

"We're excited to be partnering with such an incredible powerhouse in the skincare industry, to enhance their learning culture and ultimately bring their employees together regardless of location.

NAOS came to us with the challenge of creating a platform which would combine ease-of-use with engaging content all while reducing admin time and strain on their L&D department. We needed to be able to connect employees across different countries – all with unique cultures and different languages – and create a unified experience which would connect everyone to NAOS.

The partnership with NAOS will expand Thrive’s list of clients who have invested in their employees to enhance their learning and development journeys including The Ordinary, Ann Summers, Ted Baker, Reiss, FatFace, and many more.
