Information Age speaks to Paul Schulz, the recently appointed chief technology officer of Perkbox, to learn more about his role in a fast growing technology company.

Chieu Cao, Cofounder of Perkbox, said: “With employees spending only five minutes a day learning without interruption, finding time at work to dedicate to learning is clearly a challenge. Imagine what could be achieved if everyone spent only ten more minutes more a day learning new things.”

Magpie’s learning hub holds more than 500 bitesize content pieces covering 40 base competencies from curated, high-quality public domain sources such as Harvard Business Review, TED and Forbes. Companies are also able to add their own assets to the platform (including those created in-house) to make all relevant learning easily accessible, encouraging employees to use them.

Learning is an important driver and indicator of engagement and happiness. And that’s why we’re excited about this partnership with Perkbox which brings the right content to the right employees to inform and inspire, open minds and realise opportunities.”

Cao added: “We’re excited to be partnering with magpie to make ‘learning on the go’ as simple as possible for our users. We hope it will improve this statistic and get more employers and employees motivated and engaged on improving their learning trajectory.”
