The United Nation's International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) aims at building disaster resilient communities by promoting increased awareness of the importance of disaster reduction as an integral component of sustainable development, with the goal of reducing human, social, economic and environmental losses due to natural hazards and related technological and environmental disasters.
The office of External and Donor Relations is tasked with dedicating increasing resources to the development and promotion of integrated sub-national, national, regional and global disaster risk reduction strategies and policies. The geographically diverse and time hungry nature of their work makes opportunities for the training and up skilling of employees a significant, yet critical challenge.
Innergy opened up it's online, e-learning system to the head of External and Donor Relations, providing access to a tailored suite of web-based training modules, accessible at any time and from anywhere in the world.
To ensure participation and assessment of outcomes achieved, a schedule of training was agreed and results measured via the office of External and Donor Relations' unique account management area hosted on Innergy's secure web portal.
All modules within the suite were completed on time with a 100% pass rate, and a live online report of outcomes measured the realisation of the training's objectives.
Additional content, videos, online tools and support materials were added to the user account to provide ongoing developmental opportunities and guidance notes, and further training modules have been since deployed onto the system for further up skilling of users.
The feedback from the office of External and Donor Relations has been extremely positive.
"The nature of what we do provides limited time and opportunities to focus on self-development, accentuated by both geographical and time related restraints. However, the continuous training and development of our workforce is imperative to ensure we meet our objectives.
The online solution provided by Innergy perfectly met our requirements, providing us with short, easy-to-use but highly effective training modules in a way that gave us both flexibility as well as accuracy in its delivery.
I would gladly recommend Innergy as a provider of tailored training solutions to any organisation and look forward to continuing our relationship with them."
