GT’s Living Foods

Formalizing learning and development programming to drive 3X employee engagement.

GT’s Living Foods is well known for its commitment to helping people live happier, healthier lives through their family of fermented offerings and handcrafted active probiotics.

Making the most impact on their customers depends on the engagement of their employees–from the production floor to the corporate office–and the cultivation of a company culture that supports each person in reaching their full potential, excelling in their roles, and contributing meaningfully to the organization’s success. However, prior to formalizing learning and development, this was a challenge. 

The team lacked structured programming–from onboarding to continuous development–and relied on Excel spreadsheets to manually track learning company-wide. They needed a learning management system that would allow for easy content creation, efficient assignment management, and seamless tracking to build a stronger learning culture in which employees felt empowered to take ownership of their growth and development opportunities.

In one year of adopting WorkRamp, rolling out strategic learning initiatives and personalized development plans, and fostering a supportive learning environment, GT’s Living Foods has seen:

How GT’s Living Foods delivers engaging and scalable L&D programs with WorkRamp

  • WorkRamp Content. The GT’s Living Foods team leverages the WorkRamp Content add-on with the Development Tab to give learners the option to self-select courses and drive their own professional growth
  • Events. By creating in-person and virtual trainings as WorkRamp Events, the GT’s Living Foods team increases the discoverability of instructor-led training sessions and automates tracking for registrations
  • Reporting. Reporting on course completions, scores, and more enables the GT’s Living Foods team to move away from manual tracking and quickly identify opportunities for program improvement and drive better employee engagement

GT’s Living Foods’ top 3 strategies for driving L&D program engagement

  • “Top Learner Program.” The GT’s Living Foods team encourages ongoing program participation by recognizing the “Top Learner” of each month and of the year and awarding gift cards and company swag to those who take the most courses in WorkRamp
  • Learning Days. When schedules get busy, it’s easy for learning to get deprioritized. That’s why the GT’s Living Foods team dedicates company-wide time on Learning Days to focus on in-person training
  • Integration into individual development plans. For employees with individual development plans, the GT’s Living Foods team assigns relevant courses in WorkRamp that align with career goals and help support identified growth areas

“Without WorkRamp, we wouldn’t have the ability to scale our L&D efforts. In addition to the internally created courses we assign, employees have enjoyed having direct access to choose their own learning content, and that’s been a huge part of what has kept them coming back for more.”
