Overcoming Barriers

With operations around the world, regional differences in laws, language and culture posed a significant challenge to finding accurate and relevant training content for ISS employees.

To address the unique challenges faced by multi-national operations, SafetySkills developed a series of more than 50 international courses that focus on industry-standard best practices, and another 55 courses based in Canadian law. In addition, SafetySkills provides an ever-growing library of courses translated into Spanish, French, Mandarin and other popular languages.

SafetySkills provided ISS with a custom interface so that all content delivered to their learners around the world is wrapped in the familiar ISS brand.

Custom Solutions

The size and scope of ISS’s global operations meant that they needed a sophisticated, enterprise-level learning management system that would ease the management of users, assignments and tracking across numerous divisions, job groups and training initiatives.

SafetySkills user-friendly, cloud-based LMS makes it easy to assign multiple user and administrator roles, manage large numbers of user records, and organize users and assignments according to any conceivable criteria.

ISS was able to assign, deliver and track training for individuals and groups, in both online and offline settings, and create automatic assignments based on user groups and schedules.
