You’re in the Driver’s Seat – agile learning at HelloFresh

At the end of the year, what could be better than reviewing what has happened and reflecting on what we have been able to achieve in cooperation with great partners? For us at QualityLearning team, this certainly includes the exciting learning journey for managers that we developed and completed together with HelloFresh DACH.

The innovative and tailor-made program consisted of group learning sprints and individual learning coaching sessions. This allowed us to bring together and utilize two of the most relevant trends in corporate learning: learning in teams and personalized learning.

In short, the program looked liked this:

in three iterative circles of 4 weeks each, so-called “sprints”, learners worked in small groups on a topic they considered relevant. This approach and in particular the monthly retros, moderated by the QL team, allowed them to not only share their learnings in regards to leadership, but also to promote trust and psychological safety in the team. In addition, each learner was given a personal learning coach who helped them formulate individual learning goals and translate them into a learning plan that met their respective needs, preferences and schedule. As a result, the learners not only gained deeper insights into topics relevant to leadership, but also learned to better assess and improve their own learning process.

As this approach enabled managers to take full responsibility of their own learning, it was in perfect alignment with the HelloFresh DACH learning motto “You’re in the Driver’s Seat”. Moreover, it brought about many exciting new formats and initiatives that were developed by the participants themselves and that will now be shared with other parts of the organisation.

For us at QL, it was a pleasure to work with this committed group of individuals and to see how agile learning is increasingly taking roots in companies across all sectors and industries.

We would like to thank everyone involved in the proramm, especially the highly collaborative and open-minded L&D Team, and are already looking forward to seeing what else we can achieve together in 2024.
