"5Mins is an excellent answer to our employees' innate curiosity. Curiosity is one of our values, and 5mins has made it easier for our staff to take learning into their own hands where they can pick from an array of business-relevant topics.

We like that we can also share videos with our colleagues or teams, resulting in lively learning discussions. The truly unique feature is the ability to take our own 'lunch and learns' or other internal videos and turn them into bite-size learning for our busy employees."

Chief People Officer

Perkbox’s Challenge: Finding Time for Learning and Development (L&D):

Perkbox faced the common challenge of providing valuable learning opportunities to its employees while overcoming time constraints. Although they organized "Lunch and Learn" sessions to share knowledge and foster innovation, timing was often an obstacle. Despite recording these sessions for later access, finding time to listen to lengthy recordings proved difficult for busy employees.

As Mona Akiki, Perkbox's Chief People Officer puts it:

Our challenge is finding the time for learning and development. We've got lots of different types of people, different backgrounds, very busy individuals.

Bite-Sized Learning with 5Mins

Perkbox discovered a solution in 5Mins, a platform that condensed learning content into easily digestible four to five-minute videos. By leveraging 5Mins, Perkbox transformed their internal sessions into bite-sized learning experiences. This approach allowed employees to grasp the main points of discussions without investing excessive time.

What 5Mins allows us to do is take those "Lunch & Learn" sessions and make them into bite-sized content that people can easily consume, regardless of their busy schedules.

Enhanced Learning Accessibility

5Mins enabled Perkbox to curate learning and development playlists. These curated playlists covered various topics such as diversity initiatives and change management training. By distributing these playlists to their teams, Perkbox reinforced the learning process and ensured that the topics remained fresh in employees' minds. This increased accessibility to learning materials supported Perkbox's HR initiatives and fostered continuous development among employees.

What 5Mins does really well is curate information for us and provide us with a playlist just like a Spotify playlist. And we can then again send it out to people on our teams and say, 'Hey, you know, we talked about change management. Here are some little quick videos that you might find interesting.' 

Empowering Self-Driven Learning

With limited resources and budget constraints, Perkbox recognized the need for employees to take ownership of their learning and development journey. By implementing 5Mins, Perkbox empowered individuals to explore new topics and acquire knowledge independently. The platform provided an easily accessible solution that encouraged employees to take charge of their own learning, ultimately fostering a culture of continuous growth and curiosity within the organization.

If you want to learn, there is something out there, it's available to you and it's not complex and it's quite quick. You can just make it part of your day any which way you want.

Affordable and Quick Implementation

5Mins offered Perkbox an affordable and straightforward solution for integrating learning and development into their daily routines. The platform's ease of use and affordability made it a viable option for organizations with limited resources. By effortlessly incorporating 5Mins into their employees' day-to-day activities, Perkbox encouraged a learning culture that was adaptable, efficient, and cost-effective.

It's a solution that you can easily implement. It's actually something that's quite affordable, especially for what you get, and it's something that puts back the ownership on individuals.
