Learning through GANT Academy
At GANT we always work with our credo Never Stop Learning in mind and we aim towards having a seamless learning journey for our employees. Therefore, we launched our digital platform GANT Academy.
Maria Klingh, Global Retail Director: What was the reason GANT launched this initiative?
Launching GANT Academy has given us the opportunity to empower and develop our employees, as a part of their every day job.
With GANT Academy we can communicate with one voice to all of our colleagues both in stores and at the GANT offices around the world. With this tool we are able to offer the same training support globally.
Today we are more than 1300 employees and we have offices in 7 countries globally. Our retail organisation is spread over 60 countries with more than 700 stores. No matter where in the world our consumer visits us, we want them to have the same experience in each and every store.
GANT Academy offer small, crunch by crunch, playful and easy ”learn on the job” trainings. We want to inspire and motivate our teams to create an outstanding consumer experience built on great service and product expertise. We make sure that knowledge is spread to our entire retail network.
No matter where in the world our consumer visits us, we want them to have the same experience in each and every store.
Melvyn Blom, Store Manager Benelux: What is your experience from using GANT Academy from your perspective?
Working with GANT Academy takes our leadership to the next level. Finding the best ways to transfer knowledge to the store staff can sometimes be challenging.
Our employees become more excited and passionate about their work.
Karin Magnusson, Head of Retail Training: What has GANT Academy contributed with so far?
GANT Academy is 100% digital and can be used from everywhere and allows us to follow up and analyze the usage of our trainings and learning initiatives.
We focus on retail training where the content specializes in Service, Product, Brand and Visual Merchandise. During the past year we have launched several global training initiatives. For example our very own Onboarding Program
together with GANT Sales and Service Training and monthly seasonal and non-seasonal trainings.
We are able to train and develop our employees in something that will be beneficial both within their own careers and at the same time increase the service level and store experience for our GANT consumers.
