Workplace Help

Performance Support: The Fast Track to a Solution

With more than 500 IT applications, this not only meant an immense effort in regard to content creation, but also a change in learning culture. Mareike Heidemann-Jarosch of REWE Systems, the REWE Group’s IT subsidiary, remembers, "When it was introduced, workplace learning did not yet command the same importance as formal measures."
