Vodafone and TalenTeam:
Award-Winning Partnership -
Powered by TalenTeam's BLEND LXP
Vodafone, a global telecommunications powerhouse, has secured two prestigious awards in 2023 for its groundbreaking 'Grow with Vodafone' initiative, driven by cutting-edge learning technologies. This remarkable achievement shines a spotlight on Vodafone’s bold vision and commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in learning and talent development. And it's a celebration of their remarkable journey, powered by the expertise and technology of TalenTeam.
In an era where telecommunications companies are rapidly reinventing themselves, Vodafone set its sights on becoming the premier Telco for Europe & Africa while aspiring to lead the way in business platforms across Europe. However, this transformation journey came with a critical challenge: the dire shortage of talent, particularly those equipped with digital and technology skills. With an astounding 85.2 million worker deficit in developed economies, Vodafone recognized the imperative to overhaul its learning, talent, leadership, and skills-resourcing strategies to not just survive but thrive in this evolving landscape.
The turning point arrived in 2022 when Vodafone unveiled its new strategy and introduced the Vodafone Learning Company. Central to this groundbreaking endeavor was "Grow with Vodafone," an innovative digital solution that promised to unlock efficiency and agility on a scale never seen before. At the heart of this transformative project was TalenTeam's BLEND, a learning experience platform that seamlessly integrated into Vodafone's learning ecosystem. BLEND LXP, with its sophisticated capabilities, became the catalyst for Vodafone's journey towards excellence in learning and talent development.
Leanne Wood, Chief HR Officer at Vodafone, encapsulated the project's impact, stating, "Shifts in our strategic priorities, combined with a significant demand for building future skills at pace, at scale, and in a cost-efficient way, required a new approach to learning, talent, leadership, skills, and people performance. In April 2022, we launched the Vodafone Learning Organisation (VLO), bringing together all colleagues globally who support these activities.
In its first year, the VLO delivered significantly improved learning opportunities both through the Grow with Vodafone platform and scaled global products for skills, leadership, and people performance - all while overachieving efficiency versus the business case. The VLO’s strategic plan is building the right skills for now and for the future, enabling us to become the best-in-class telco for Europe and Africa and Europe’s leading platform for business."
