Evolve faster

Technology has overhauled an already evolving food and beverage industry. Big data has the potential to revolutionise how products get to market and how those markets are approached; customers are more connected, and their satisfaction is the new metric of success; even the way people approach what they eat and drink is changing.

Whoever best leverages digital possibilities will gain and retain customer loyalty, the rest will fall behind.  Fixing digital learning and linking it to talent and performance data is essential. We can help you:

  • Develop and deploy a streamlined, productised skills framework focused on exactly the capabilities you need to take command of new technologies

  • Accurately and scalably tag existing and new content against this framework to deal with digital content overload and personalise at scale

  • Run campaigns that galvanise your business to rise to the challenge of customer centricity in a digital era

  • Leverage learning and talent data analysis to increase the speed of infrastructure development and employee training

Solve the problem of defining relevant skills

Building skill frameworks has fallen behind within large food and beverage companies. Time and money are wasted on complex, static, multi-layered frameworks. Often based on no more than surveys and committee judgments, these legacy frameworks are rarely put into practice. External consultancies are brought in to help, but their frameworks are often too generic and unwieldy to keep up with the capabilities that matter in an evolving market.

We use data to deliver simple (we say ‘productised’) skills frameworks of less than fifty top-priority skills that will join people to content (via a skills signature) and meld current and future needs. Armed with a common language for mission-critical skills, you can make sense of learning and talent data and build easily searchable, evolving knowledge bases.

Fix search and automate curation

We know how hard it is to maintain and update vast libraries of internal training content to develop new products, streamline processes, and optimise the commercial workforce. Hundreds of thousands of internal resources sit alongside large external libraries like GetAbstract, Coursera and LinkedIn Learning. Plus there's all of the content out there on the web in the public domain. The vast availability of content makes tagging it by humans impossible.

Filtered has developed automated tagging tools and technology to analyse all of that content and curate that which is most relevant for your business, i.e. to your productised skills framework. Using the framework as a lens to examine all content enables efficiency savings as we can advise on saving money by cutting underperforming libraries and surfacing the really outstanding assets. Then delivering them to the right people at the right time. And the best part is, we can get it up and running in a matter of weeks, not months, to help to react with agility to upskill and reskill your teams.

5 Ways to improve your Food & Beverage learning strategy

The food and beverages industry is facing multiple, fundamental overhauls right now. As a learning and development professional, it's up to you to help your organisation transform its people to face its challenges. The pressure's on.

We know you've got this. But it's always good to have help. So we interviewed some of your industry colleagues to inform this in-depth guide, which covers how to:

  • Address your organisation's key challenges from a learning perspective
  • Seize the moment to bring your L&D department closer to the business
  • Drive performance through learning innovation and automation


Deliver change and engagement at scale

Going digital means changing the way you communicate. You can’t just expect your busy employees to come to your learning system. You’ll need to persuade them with high-quality, intelligent and intentional comms.

Microsoft Teams is being deployed across the food and beverages sector. Getting people to engage - and doing something good with their engagement - is critical. Our Teams integration is helping Food and Beverage organisations to build campaigns that:

  • Bridge the gap between legacy LMS and intranet platforms and users by pushing notifications into email and MS Teams
  • Capture new data on learning and skill development to plug shifting gaps in your organisational knowledge
  • Re-engage your people in your most important change programmes
