Event Details

To win the digital challenge and meet its strategic goals, Santander Group has been implementing, since 2017, a new learning strategy to realise its S25 vision: transform Santander into an open financial services platform. A central building block of this global strategy is to put in place a Learning Experience Platform enabling Santander to up-skill and re-skill its employees to stay relevant in a fast changing business environment. The Learning Experience Platform, the name of which is DOJO, will transform the way the 200,000 Santander employees learn while being in the flow of work.

DOJO connects people and content across the geographies, in an intuitive and efficient manner, minimizing the learning time to value. It empowers employees to take ownership of their own learning in becoming knowledge activists in a collaborative environment. Employees will be able to create, share and leverage knowledge in one single digital workspace and Santander will know what Santander knows.

How does Dojo work in practice and what is its impact? This is what Elisabetta Galli, Global Head of Knowledge, Development & Talent at Santander Group will share with EFMD members during the workshop.

The Santander experience will be enriched by BNIFaurecia, Sberbank and Siemens practices to enhance the culture of learning and collaboration in small work groups.

An interactive session about the impact of Blockchain on learning and development will be facilitated by Kevin Gill (GBS Blockchain CTO) and James Cook (Executive Partner – Strategy & Innovation in Talent and Transformation) from IBM.

Target Group
This workshop is by invitation only and is dedicated to corporate learning and corporate HR practitioners from companies. Free of charge for EFMD member companies and special guests (special guest = ONE free seat to attend ONE workshop for discovery for non-members).
