Packt Publishing is a global on-demand technology book publishing company based in Birmingham (United Kingdom). Founded in 2004, the company is a sector bellwether, providing IT professionals worldwide with tutorials, guides, specialized books, e-books, videos and courses.
With a global and digitized staff working across several countries and cities, Packt was facing the challenge of providing its employees with an attractive training capable of enticing and motivating them. The human resources managers were dealing with the considerable difficulties in mustering up voluntary enrollment in their training offers. Assembling a group of people for classroom training had become a sort of impossible mission and the traditional e-learning platforms were incapable of engaging and motivating their employees.
