OpenSesame Case Study

Owens Illinois re-ignites continuous learning with OpenSesame

Introduction

This case study of Owens-Illinois is based on a June 2017 survey of OpenSesame customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Across a population of around 2000 employees, our region in the Asia Pacific has been a pilot for the global business (around 25000 employees). For this pilot, it has re-ignited an appetite for continuous learning that the long-serving members of the business had somewhat lost. This concept of continuous learning is now reaching all corners of the business at all levels. The value of this movement cannot be underestimated for a business that knows it needs to keep on building its capability to remain competitive.”
