5app Launches New Academies Solution

London (UK), December 2023 - 5app, a learning platform that delivers rapid knowledge transfer, has announced the launch of 5app academies, a brand-new solution that drives learner engagement, ROI, and business growth.

Following the success of Greystar's Business School, built on the 5app platform, Greystar introduced learning academies to create structured, tailored learning programmes for employees across the business. These academies span the entire employee lifecycle and focus on functional areas and specific roles to help employees develop the skills, knowledge, and technical capabilities needed to thrive at Greystar.

Following the launch of the learning academies architecture, monthly engagement with Greystar Business School's learning assets increased by 63%. Overall platform engagement has increased by 328% since launch, showing that embedding learning into the flow of work and improving accessibility has had a major impact on the way Greystar employees interact with content. On top of this, Greystar's academies have resulted in 294% ROI, making this a hugely impactful, successful initiative.

Steve Thompson, Chief Learning Officer at 5app, said, "I'm really proud of the solution we've created to help businesses achieve real business growth through learning. In a nutshell, with 5app academies, businesses can enjoy the convenience, experience, and expertise of our team without all the time-consuming legwork that goes into making academies a success. I think of this as a way for companies to extend their L&D team's capacity and capabilities without the huge investment of time and money you might expect."
