Pilkington Signs Deal With SkillSoft to Help Develop Business Skills Worldwide

Pilkington, the global manufacturer of glass and glazing products, has awarded online learning provider, SkillSoft , a three-year contract worth nearly £380,000 to supply management, business, health & safety, IT and desktop-skills training to its 24,000-strong workforce.

The decision reflects Pilkington’s commitment to developing its employees and will allow the company to provide a cost-effective and consistent global approach to learning.

As a lean manufacturer operating in a highly competitive market, Pilkington believes that its continuing success will hinge on the business and management skills of its people as well as on their technical expertise.

To help achieve its learning and development objectives, Pilkington has purchased SkillSoft’s entire management, business and IT curricula together with selected health & safety courses. To address the global nature of Pilkington’s workforce, the content will be available in Spanish, Castilian, Polish, Russian, French, German, Italian and Mandarin. The e-learning will be deployed via SkillSoft’s learning management system, SkillPort, and will be accessible to employees via the Internet.

Commenting on the deal, Roy Prescott, group learning and development manager for Pilkington said: “Having experienced some service and deployment issues with a previous e-learning provider we stipulated that SkillSoft must run a pilot for a six-month period prior to committing ourselves to signing a contract. The result was that we had over 500 new registered users and in excess of 700 completed programmes within that period.
