"Learning and development had not been created as a continuous activity. Training was often one off interventions with the impact difficult to measure. Filtered has helped us change that in a short period of time. The cultural change it has driven in terms of reinforcing an expectation of continuous learning at all levels is the biggest achievement to me."
"We partnered with Filtered because we liked the idea of learners being able to tailor resources based on their knowledge gaps. The quality of reporting data provided allowed us to calculate an ROI of £1.80 for every £1 invested in a licence."
