Illumina and IBIS Consulting Achieve Rapid Enterprise-wide Bias Training for USA Today/Gannett
USA Today/Gannett had ambitious goals for providing unconscious bias training to its employees. Illumina worked closely with its partner, IBIS Consulting, and the USA Today team to identify and select key content areas, drawing from IBIS’s Unconscious Bias e-learning module series to create a tailored version for USA Today incorporating client branding. A major aspect of the initiative was the need to provide a platform to rapidly deploy the on-line course. Illumina set up an instance on Epignosis’ TalentLMS, first to conduct a pilot test with a few hundred users in the late Spring, and then to launch enterprise-wide training for roughly 10,000 employees in just 6 weeks over the Summer. The implementation included single sign-on (SSO), email reminder notifications, and customized reporting to accomplish the rapid take-up with USA Today/Gannett employees.
