10th October 2018, London, UK - Perkbox, Europe’s fastest growing employee engagement platform, has today partnered with Filtered Technologies to launch its patented AI product magpie, a learning recommendations engine that matches the right learning to the right learner, on the Perkbox platform.
Magpie achieves this by using machine-learning algorithms to match the relevant content to each individual user. Using an intuitive chat function, Perkbox users get personalised learning recommendations in minutes, simply by answering a few questions.
Magpie contains over 500+ bitesize content pieces that cover 40 base competencies from expertly curated, high quality public domain sources such as Harvard Business Review, TED and Forbes. Companies can also add their own assets to the platform (including those created in-house) to make all relevant learning easily accessible.
Integrated via chatbots, magpie slots seamlessly into existing learning platforms and communication channels like Slack, email inboxes, CRM systems or Facebook Workplace, further simplifying its integration into existing company channels.
Saurav Chopra, CEO of Perkbox says: “With employees spending only 5 minutes a day learning without interruption, finding time at work to dedicate to learning is clearly a challenge. Imagine what could be achieved if everyone spent only 10 more minutes more a day learning new things...
“We’re excited to be partnering with magpie to make ‘learning on the go’ as simple as possible for our users. We hope it will improve this statistic and get more employers and employees motivated and engaged on improving their learning trajectory .”
Marc Zao-Sanders, CEO of Filtered, says: “It’s becoming increasingly important to firms that employees are engaged and happy. Learning is an important driver and indicator of engagement and happiness. And that’s why we’re excited about this partnership with Perkbox which brings the right content to the right employees to inform and inspire, open minds and realise opportunities.”
