St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2008/10/30 - Giunti Labs, has been chosen as one of the limited number of official providers for e-learning content production services for the next two years to the Scandinavia-based, home furnishing products retailer, IKEA®.
The continuing growth of e-learning within IKEA prompted the company to identify up to five high quality e-learning suppliers which can provide e-learning materials using learning objects, as well as implement and maintain e-learning programmes.
IKEA carried out a large project when selecting the suppliers for the Global Framework Agreement.
Originally, IKEA identified 60 potential suppliers, from all over the world. IKEA narrowed these down to 16 and, from these, selected five – including Giunti Labs – to be part of its Global Framework agreement.
Ola Badersten, CEO of Giunti Labs Scandinavia, explained: “Giunti Labs has been a preferred supplier to IKEA since 2007.
“In that time, we have developed and ‘localised’ three e-learning programmes, including IKEA’s largest e-learning programme of the past two years. We’re delighted to have been reappointed as one of IKEA’s five approved e-learning content suppliers for the next two years.”
