Legal and General and Hive Learning Win the Gold Award for ‘Best Use of Social and Collaborative Learning Technologies’ at the 2021 Learning Technologies Awards

Hive Learning and their client Legal & General (L&G) were awarded the gold award for ‘Best use of social and collaborative learning technologies’ at the 2021 Learning Technologies Awards last night.

The award was given as a result of the impact that the two teams were able to deliver for L&G employees as part of a new vision and approach to learning and development starting with enhancing leadership capability and embedding behaviours at scale over the course of the last 18 months.

Using Hive Learning’s group-based and nudge-driven peer learning platform, Legal & General were able to deliver a series of programmes to support learners in critical areas –– from leadership development programmes to inclusion programmes and best practice communities. Conversational analysis and pulse check capability meant they were able to quickly capture feedback from learners on where they were struggling and deploy new, relevant learning resources in just days.

Working in an agile, sprint-based delivery model, the two teams were able to see impact in weeks they thought would take years to deliver. L&G’s leaders reported feeling more confident in leading authentically, with agility, and able to help their team thrive, with 90% of learners forming a learning habit, 95% committing to putting inclusive actions into practice, and achieved a +50 NPS programme average

Tanya Bagchi, Group People Development Director, Legal & General said of the partnership:

“Hive Learning has empowered Legal & General to continuously evolve and iterate our approach to learning and development. We’ve created a connected user experience across our core programmes, reaching more and more of our people as well as increasing efficiencies in delivery and amplifying learning across the organisation.

“We’re gathering and using data in new ways, which is helping us to empower our employees to take ownership and accountability for their own development. This digitally-enabled, democratised and collaborative approach to learning is even more important in a world where we’re working in hybrid teams and our work with Hive Learning means we’re already embracing the future of learning.”

The Learning Technology Awards said of the award for ‘Best use of social and collaborative learning technologies’:

“The judges were very impressed with a clear vision and strategy for what the L&G team wanted to achieve, that was well in vision prior to the pandemic, but accelerated as a result of it.  They were especially impressed with the learning design and how this was adapted as the programme launched, and a clear engagement campaign.  Their focus on data and insight helped shape something which really seemed to resonate with the audience.”

Hive Learning CEO Julia Tierney commented on the partnership:

“From an internal survey, we estimate that 80% of companies are hitting reset on their values and behaviours right now. But embedding those behaviours as a habit and making sure they stick is hard. The  innovative approach that the Legal & General team took is a testament to what happens when an organization gets it right. Their agility and love of data makes them a dream partner and we’re excited to continue our partnership together.”
