DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Evolve faster

Technology is changing the Utilities industry: the Internet of Things and edge analytics are allowing companies to achieve new efficiencies with data, customers are expecting increasing autonomy over their energy management, and a constant stream of innovative disruptors are introducing swathes of new technology to the market.

The race is on to keep up with these changes. Utilities businesses must build new analytical and technological capabilities fast. 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 power useable search and impactful learning recommendations

  • 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 product development and employee training

SKILLS FRAMEWORKS

Solve the problem of defining relevant skills

Building skill frameworks has fallen behind within large utilities 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 a changing 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.

AUTOMATED CURATION

Fix search and automate curation

Utilities companies must maintain and update vast libraries of internal training content to satisfy shifting regulations, develop new products and keep teams at computers and on the ground up to speed with relevant knowledge. 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 - including free websites - 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 massive efficiency savings as we can advise on cutting duplication and surfacing the really outstanding assets. A library of well-tagged content powers search and is essential if you want to make good learning recommendations.

So there are already some respects - beyond processing speed - in which our proprietary technology actually surpasses human performance. Imagine this applied to your own internal content, and 680 more providers. Instantly. Then combined with machine learning for deep personalised recommendations.

5 Ways to improve your utilities learning strategy

Build new technical and commercial capabilities fast

The utilities 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

CHANGE CAMPAIGNS

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 (and our magpie integration) is being deployed across the utilities sector. Getting people to engage - and doing something good with their engagement - is critical. We work with utilities 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
