L&D professionals know that courses and formal learning are vital to develop skills and competencies, but they’re not enough. To improve employee engagement and to keep learners up to date about industry trends through trending content, you need to regularly curate content from the wider web. But searching the web for trending content is time-consuming. We partner with Anders Pink to help solve this problem. The AI-driven content curation tool categorises and sorts content for context. New content is sourced on your topics and skills of interest, every day, and embedded in our BLEND Learning Experience Platform.
This partnership brings the best of the web automatically into BLEND LXP creating a space conducive to employee training and development. BLEND helps learners to personalize their learning experience, combining relevant courses and formal learning with curated content via Anders Pink. By simply entering your interests, Anders Pink within BLEND sources high quality, relevant content from a wide range of source across the web. There’s no need to log into Anders Pink as an end user - the whole experience is in BLEND. Learners can rate, like or share the content, encouraging social learning and continuous development. This helps the individual to grow towards specific objectives and goals. This content is always changing within the platform based on engagement and interactions.
One of the oldest organizations in the world, Royal Mail Group can trace its origins back over 500 years to 1516. Given the mail, parcel and courier market changes, they needed to transform their approach to be more user focused and improve the employee engagement experience. The opportunity was to create a foundation for all learning and development and bring the workforce along with the business as it progresses along the transformation journey.
BLEND Learning Experience Platform helped Royal Mail deliver the information, tools, and resources to the workforce to help them do their jobs more efficiently by allowing users to choose the way they want to learn, providing access to learning and career content that is most relevant to the individual and their role. Anders Pink enabled content aggregation and curation engine to aggregate and automatically bring fresh content into the platform, which has increased learner engagement by 30% and streamlined the delivery of information on a large scale.
A global Bank with over 70,000 employees found it challenging to keep teams informed of sector developments and to keep up with best practices at the pace in which the world of work is changing. We created range of custom curated content feeds (called Briefings) to update their teams on topics that matter to the organization. These were integrated seamlessly into BLEND LXP for the client. Their Subject Matter Experts can review the briefings on a weekly basis to share the most valuable articles. This has helped the client stay up to date on niche topics, saved time and effort searching the web and manually sharing this content, and has helped develop a continuous learning culture in the client organization.

The result of implementing an AI-based content curation tool has meant resources are updated automatically every day.
