Core Leaders are high-performing solutions that typically have the highest levels of customer and market performance. They offer a strong suite of capabilities, differentiation versus other providers, and a strong track record of enterprise customer delivery and advocacy.

Hive Learning’s recognition as a Core Leader follows a year of significant product development, including the launch of a new Sprint-based methodology for delivering high-impact learning programs at scale and a new programme management system that enables customers to quickly and easily build their own programs using Hive Learning’s secret sauce.

In pursuit of its goal to offer customers a holistic talent development experience that reduces the headache of delivery for talent teams and increases learning outcomes for learners, Hive Learning achieved several major milestones in the past year, including:

  • Winning the Gold Awards for ‘Best Advance in Diversity and Inclusion Innovation’ at the 2022 Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Awards with UKG and ‘Best Learning Technologies Project – Public & Non-Profit Sector’ at the 2022 Learning Technologies Awards with Place2Be
  • Launching a new Sprint-based deployment model for talent development programs, designed to embed one specific skill over 6 to 10 weeks using action-oriented and bite-sized content, conversation-starters, and nudges embedded into Teams, Email, and the Calendar to close the Intent to Action gap
  • Enhancements to Hive Learning’s group-based learning platform, including live comment translation of over 200 languages with 90% accuracy and a new Sprint Builder interface that enables easy program build, scheduling, and delivery using Hive Learning’s tried-and-tested formula for achieving +90% monthly engagement
  • Release of a new integrations suite, including enhanced Microsoft Viva and HCM integrations that enable automated management of thousands of cohorts, plus detailed data analysis and reporting

Hive Learning also advanced within the Core Challenger quadrant of the 2023 Fosway 9 Grid™ for Learning Systems just one month ago. This recognition cements Hive Learning’s position as a disruptor in corporate learning, driving innovation and learner-centricity within the industry.

I am incredibly proud of our team and their progress in delivering great outcomes for our customers this year. Helping leaders on one of our sprints double their employee-rated engagement scores in under three months is just one example. Exploring how we can use generative AI to codify and automate our secret sauce is another. Looking ahead, we’re excited to continue pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the L&D space, and we’re confident that our upcoming product releases, including streamlined live event management and a conversational AI assistant, will help solve one of the biggest pain points that L&D teams face today –– managing a complex technology ecosystem without burning out, all while delivering exceptional learning outcomes that actually make a difference to the bottom line. Watch this space.”  Alex Shaw, Hive Learning Chief Technology Officer, Hive Learning

“Being able to deliver a high-quality digital learning experience is now critically important for buyers,” said David Wilson, CEO, Fosway Group. “Hive Learning’s position as a Core Leader on the 2023 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning, reflects the company’s focus on delivering innovative programmes quickly using its sprint methodology and focusing on the collaborative aspect of learning.”
