Richard Gregory, Head U+ for ,Rentokil Initial
For Richard Gregory, demonstrating the value of his L&D department is not a ‘nice-to-have’. It’s a daily operational necessity. Rentokil Initial provides training for 30,000 employees internationally – at cost to the local business. Having made a massive impact internally by moving to a micro learning strategy he was challenged with making a similar impact to Rentokil Initial’s customers. By working with the business Richard created myLearning a customer facing digital learning experience which he provides as a service to Rentokil Initial’s customers. Whether it’s about generating revenue from organic growth, adding additional value to existing contracts or increasing customer retention myLearning is using L&D as a real game changer for the business.
