SANDBACH, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 07/24/14 -- SafeGuard World International (SGWI), a leading provider of global managed payroll, global employment outsourcing and international HR services proudly accepted its "Best New Implementation" award at Skillsoft's 2014 Perspectives EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) conference on 17 July, 2014.
Skillsoft, a cloud based global learning organization, held their annual conference in London, UK, where they announced the winners of their inaugural Inspire Awards. These awards were designed to celebrate the hard work and dedication of Learning & Development (L&D) professionals across EMEA. Five categories were reviewed by a panel of expert judges and SGWI won the "Best New Implementation" award.
As a high-growth organization, SGWI has been growing its staff by more than 50% every year. SGWI's strategy entails recruiting the best people in the industry as well as developing and retaining their existing team. To support that strategy, SGWI created SafeGuard University (SGU), an employee training program that provides its staff (affectionately known as Guardians) with content specific training courses.
As part of SGU's strategic expansion, SGWI was seeking an online training tool to provide both job specific training and soft skills training for its Guardians who are based across five offices in four different countries. SGWI researched the market and ultimately chose Skillsoft, who emerged as the clear market leader. SGWI aimed to complete its Skillsoft implementation across the whole business within 28 days. While this was challenging, the highly experienced Skillsoft implementation team worked diligently and met the aggressive timeline.
SGWI Founder & Chief Guardian Bjorn Reynolds commented, "According to Gartner Research, 'SGWI is the young disrupter in this market and are leading the field in global payroll.' A large part of that is due to our people. We want to invest heavily in our Guardians and continually enhance their skills as this will not only maintain our high employee retention rates but will also ensure that our clients continue to get maximum value from our people. We are completely committed to our Guardians and to investing in their futures."
Rachel Sault, SGWI University Leader, added, "In addition to the Skillsoft team's success in meeting our timeline, we were also thrilled with the fact that their solution offers all of their courses online, which means that our Guardians can take them at their convenience, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, regardless of what time zone they are in. At a group level, we enjoy a globally-consistent approach to training which has enabled us to create and track our Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) consistently. At a tactical level, we now enjoy an eLearning tool that empowers each of our Guardians to keep learning."
