The challenge

Streamlining L&D Opportunities

Despite the abundance of L&D courses available, RUSH’s staff found it challenging to navigate the myriad of development options when crafting their individual development plans. The process often proved daunting, with individuals struggling to identify courses that suited their needs and schedules. Additionally, understanding the cost implications of each course added another layer of complexity. Although RUSH allocated a $1,000 L&D budget to its employees annually, there was a common struggle in determining the most suitable ways to allocate these funds. This led RUSH to seek a solution that would simplify this process.
