Employee Engagement: MobieTrain and Speakap

Posted on May 23, 2019

How to revolutionise Employee Engagement? Let’s talk with MobieTrain and Speakap.

The correlation between employee engagement and business success cannot be overstated in the dynamic landscape of the modern workplace. By recognising this, MobieTrain, a pioneer in microlearning, and Speakap, a leading employee communication tool, have joined forces to redefine the future of work and employee engagement.

In this interview series, Guy Van Neck, founder of MobieTrain, and Patrick van der Mijl, Co-Founder of Speakap, shed light on the value of their partnership and how it’s reshaping how companies approach learning and communication.

Unlocking Added Value through Integration

In response to the evolving needs of businesses, integrating MobieTrain and Speakap brings forth a holistic approach to employee engagement. Indeed, the partnership enriches the learning experience by introducing social learning alongside formal and microlearning.

How can employees learn from their peers?

With personalized learning paths and peer-to-peer support facilitated through social channels, the collaboration addresses the multifaceted needs of today’s workforce. Adding a news feed promotes direct employee interaction, while two-way communication channels empower and motivate employees, fostering a sense of being heard and valued.

Two-Way Communication: A Key to Engagement

Patrick emphasizes the importance of two-way communication in driving engagement. While positive working relationships are crucial, many employees lack a positive relationship with their direct/line manager. The MobieTrain and Speakap partnership aims to bridge this gap. How? By maximizing the potential of targeted, transparent communication and leveraging micro-learning segments to enhance job performance.

Choosing Integration Over Building In-House Features

The decision to integrate platforms stems from a commitment to agility, speed to market, and efficiency. With Speakap’s open API facilitating seamless integration, the collaboration leverages MobieTrain’s learning expertise and Speakap’s communication proficiency.

So, the result is a comprehensive suite of learning tools that align with businesses’ learning and development (L&D) needs.

Guy highlights that social learning and communications have always been part of MobieTrain’s product roadmap.

Having tested and refined core microlearning capabilities, the timing was ripe to integrate social learning seamlessly. By partnering with Speakap, MobieTrain can offer clients a comprehensive learning solution that combines microlearning, mobile learning, and effective communication.

Driving Forces: Deskless Workers and Evolving Business Dynamics

One of the primary catalysts for the partnership is the rise of frontline workers, which is projected to reach 1.45 billion by 2022.

Indeed, MobieTrain and Speakap are strategically positioned to cater to this shift in business operations. The integration addresses the challenges of engaging non-office-based employees with the traditional in-person training model proving insufficient for global, remote workforces.

Patrick underscores the significance of technology in improving employee communications and the employee experience for non-desk workers. As technology plays a pivotal role, finding the right tools becomes crucial. The influx of millennials and Gen Z employees emphasizes the centrality of mobile platforms for training and communication. This is a trend observed across industries, focusing on retail.
