Wolseley UK employees ‘log in’ to increase performance

Published:  13 November, 2013

Wolseley UK has launched a new suite of IT training courses for its employees as part of an expansion of its Online Training Academy.

The Online Training Academy is an educational tool that enables all Wolseley UK employees to learn new skills and acquire knowledge in areas such as health and safety and product information.

Wolseley UK has launched 20 IT training courses at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. The courses are accessible to all 6,000 employees in the business, and cover various IT applications including spreadsheet management, word documents, email management, and presentations. Each course lasts around an hour and can conveniently be stopped and started to fit in around employees’ work commitments.

Nick Scott, head of employee engagement at Wolseley UK, said: “Wolseley UK’s Online Training Academy is dedicated to helping our employees develop new skills and product knowledge, and this is the first time we have been able to offer IT training to all of our employees.

“As a business, we take pride in developing our people and the training has proved very popular – so far more than 100 employees have already signed up for courses following the launch.”
