Minto’s Learning Hub
We take great pride in Minto’s Learning Hub which provides our employees access to self-paced online learning, powered by Skillsoft’s Percipio platform. It includes thousands of business excellence and region-specific compliance videos and courses helping employees increase their knowledge, learn new skills and prepare them for the next step in their careers.
From business operations and customer service to sales, marketing, and everything in between — the Learning Hub provides our employees with best-in-class resources to support their development.
This technology helps employees in the following areas:
- Helps broaden employee training options with skill-based learning paths
- Gives employees access to learning anywhere and anytime, on a mobile device or desktop computer
- Empowers employees to explore different topics, create playlists, and get recommendations aligned with their goals and interests
“We want our team members to thrive at work, and continuous learning is a critical part of a fulfilling employee experience. At Minto, we effectively partner with employees to understand their capabilities and needs with a focus on investing in the content and tools that help both them and the organization succeed.” – Yin Trinh, Director, Learning and OD
