The challenge

Atea is a large company that operates at a fast pace to keep up with rapid shifts in technology, services and client needs. This doesn’t leave much time for learning new skills and exploring new products. For Atea, it is important that knowledge sharing is demand-driven and that courses are easy to create and distribute.

The solution

In order to achieve the best possible learning outcomes, Atea was looking for a tool that gave users the opportunity to learn where and when their employees chose, and to inspire them to further their own, self-directed learning.

“A great tool for nano-learning, Motimate gives the Ateans access to mandatory and recommended courses, as well as a large library of additional courses, should they choose to learn more about other disciplines or acquire new skills.”

The results

After more than a year using Motimate, Espen tells us that it has made learning more accessible. employees regularly compare notes about which Motis they have completed. Colleagues encourage each other to complete relevant learning modules in Motimate before sitting down to discuss and apply themselves to a particular task.

In a constantly evolving landscape of digital opportunity, shifting expectation and ever greater demand, Motimate, enables us to explore how digital nano-education gives us a vehicle for what we, at Atea, call our #exploremindset – learning whenever and wherever we want too. Motimate really is technology for people.
