London, 22nd November 2018: Halma plc, a global group of life-saving technology companies, and digital partner, Hive Learning, have been awarded ‘Best use of social and collaborative technologies’ at the 2018 Learning Technologies Awards for their work on HalmaHub – the group’s mobile-first, social learning experience, which has accelerated the pace of innovation across the group.
As part of its emerging growth strategy, Halma recognised the opportunity to amplify the ambition and impact of its companies by creating a culture of shared learning across their over 40 diverse and geographically dispersed technology businesses.
So Halma partnered with Hive Learning to create a mobile-first, social learning experience in HalmaHub – one of seven core growth enablers contributing to record profit and growth in 2018.
Today is the first anniversary of the launch, and in that time, over 80% of Halma’s connected employees across 19 countries regularly access HalmaHub to share knowledge, skills and ideas every day. This has led to the creation of entirely new business models, product collaborations, and accelerated the pace of change across the group.
Of the partnership, the Learning Technologies Awards judges commented:
“What was a collection of remarkable but devolved companies became more than the sum of its parts, sharing innovative and exciting ideas and developing whole new products that would never have existed, were it not for the new collaborative learning platform.”
Jennifer Ward, Group Talent and Communications Director at Halma, said:
“As a portfolio of entrepreneurial companies tackling some of the key problems facing the world today, we recognised that we had significant opportunities to accelerate growth by learning from one another, collaborating, solving problems and innovating. We couldn’t do this without the HalmaHub, and our partner Hive Learning.”
Hive Learning CEO Angus McCarey said of the win:
“Halma’s mission to create a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone inspires us everyday at Hive Learning. Halma’s innovative approach to driving an open and agile culture of shared learning proves that empowering and connecting employees is the secret sauce to innovation – and growth. It’s a privilege to partner with them.”
