For users, there are alternative learning concepts, developed for different educational needs and situations.
For businesses, the service provides an efficient and flexible way of keeping their employees’ competence up-to-date. The business licence includes an easy-to-use analytics view for monitoring the achievement of the organisation’s training targets.
Each year, approximately 6,500 specialists participate in training provided by Alma Talent. During the coronavirus restrictions, most courses are provided remotely through a digital channel. Seduo further strengthens Alma Talent’s offering of digital training services.
The technological platform of Alma Talent Seduo was developed by Alma Media’s Czech subsidiary LMC. The content has been tailored to match Finnish working culture as well as the development of local competence and the expertise of Finnish specialists.
