How we do it and make a difference
We pride ourselves on providing content and client solutions across the full spectrum of learning subjects, but perhaps Hemsley Fraser is best known for our personal effectiveness and front-line leadership programs, and particularly our ability to deploy customized client solutions on a global scale. Our belief has long been that these learning solutions must be relevant and contextualized for the client (‘what does it mean to be a professional or leader here’) and must offer significant blended learning components, to ensure that behaviors are embedded and sustained.
Innovation is at the heart of all that we undertake in Hemsley Fraser (HF), and we pride ourselves not only on our ability to innovate, but the pace at which we can bring concepts to life. Below are some examples of how we are ensuring that the entire learning and development process, from design to execution, is as engaging as it can be.
Client Design Process – HF has completely re-imagined the client planning and instructional design process. Our dedicated client experience centers have been specifically designed to ensure easy content review, fast-paced design, and maximum collaboration. Our Client Decks (London, Washington DC and Frankfurt), ensure that our clients can approach instructional design in a more creative and collaborative manner, and greatly speed along the design and development process. View our client deck co-creation video on YouTube.
Core/Digital Learning Hub – We have created a ground-breaking approach to intellectual property management, which enables clients to quickly build self-directed or blended programs for their teams, quickly and cost effectively. Our learning assets are conveniently housed in one easy-to-access digital platform (http://thehfvault.com/NBA/HF-Innovation-Story/assets/core.mp4 ). This highly visual approach to content navigation makes designing tailored learning solutions a breeze – digital learning assets (videos, animations, interactive digital books & infographics), as well as virtual and face-to-face training materials – all available to design a solution that is unique to the business.
Fluidbook library – Our unique digital books continue to delight clients, and we now offer a full library of these highly engaging learning tools. Fluidbooks combine multiple ways of learning in one space, keeping the learner engaged for a longer period. Whether learners prefer to read, watch, or try it out, each fluidbook is designed to connect with all learning styles.
Thrive in Five – Our new mobile learning offering, follows a set methodology that teaches practical solutions for common business situations, all in five steps. This highly engaging series is perfectly suited to mobile, with video and animation backdrops that work on smaller devices. At no longer than 3 minutes, these solutions also cater to trends in micro-learning.
Wizards – Client demand for graphics, production, and digital editorial services is at an all-time high, as the production quality is so important to the overall learning effectiveness. Our ‘Wizards’ team – an in-house team of production and graphics personnel ready to mobilize on any client need – are bringing ‘a touch of magic’ to learning content, making it more appealing and accessible to users.
HF Garage – To ensure that our innovations are truly focused on the next generation, we are proud to have opened the HF ‘garage’ in 2016 – a Silicon-Valley inspired development laboratory, located in our central London facility. This Garage combines the breaking technologies with college interns to explore the next great innovations in learning… VR learning, adaptive learning, mobile….
