Mercurytide help businesses to overcome everyday challenges through creative thinking and innovation, intersected with technology, offering tailored back office systems and websites.
During a recent recruitment drive at Mercurytide it became apparent there was an opportunity to enhance their welcome pack for staff joining the company. Mercurytide employee, John Mills, collaborated all his notes and wrote a document that would be distributed to the new starts on their first day at Mercurytide. After the document was completed, it was obvious that it was very long and not very engaging for the reader, so much so that there was a concern that the reader would forget all the important content.
At this point the decision was made to restructure the document into a more manageable and memorable structure, this was definitely achieved by using Bolt Editor. Once the eLearning modules had been created, it was clear that this was a great decision.
- The information was easily split into 3 online training modules, each one holding the correct content based on the job role the new start was fulfilling.
- The styling options offered while creating the modules were all used. Each slide had different transitions, backgrounds and in general were easier to read.
- The modules allowed us to convey a positive company image which could have been lost while using word documents. Having the ability to hand over an eLearning module instead of a document is far more professional for a company who pride themselves at being ahead of the technology curve.
The eLearning modules instantly became memorable; in fact, when one of the new starts began at Mercurytide, they recognised a few of the current employees who had featured in the modules. This made the new starts' first day easier as they already 'knew' people in the office.
The Bolt LMS was great to use as it allowed us to distribute the correct content to the new start and we were able to track their progression through the eLearning module. We also benefit by having a record of distribution and a record of when the module was completed.
Using Bolt allowed us to create a truly memorable and engaging module for the new starts at Mercurytide and it set a level of expectation to the new start. Technically, it was very easy to create the modules as the Bolt Editor had a vast array of different tools to use. From a Mercurytide stance, having the ability to know exactly when and what training is being delivered to a new start is great for our records. - John Mills, Senior Software Tester
