Overview

Ford Mexico has opted for a different and innovative communication and training methodology to convey its values and experience to its distributors’ employees.

The main challenge that faced was covering its training and communication needs for a broad range of job groups who were geographically dispersed. Game-based learning has been the ideal tool for that.

Challenges

  • Innovate in training collaborators of different profiles.
  • Reach workers from different areas and responsibilities with training that suits their needs.

Solutions

  • Learning in a simulated and safe environment: Gamelearn serious games afforded a new, innovative and attractive way of learning that broke the mold of more traditional methods. The real cases emulated in the game simulators let training recipients practice in a safe environment.
  • Interesting and synergetic training: The quality of the content and gamification elements, which motivated and surprised the players, increased their engagement and enhanced their learning experience.
  • Accessibility: In light of the project’s ambitious scope (several thousandcollaborators), Gamelearn’s accessible and flexible platform became anessential factor for Ford Mexico. Participants could train whenever and wherever they wanted.
