United Biscuits case study

United Biscuits streamlined learning and development, releasing 500 staff hours back into the organisation within three months and cutting training costs by 89% with Kallidus LMS.

The challenge

United Biscuits is the leading manufacturer of sweet and savoury snack foods in the UK, with seven manufacturing facilities in the UK alone and 4,600 UK staff, 80% of whom work on the factory floor in varying shift patterns. United Biscuits needed to streamline the management and delivery of training, improve access to blended learning, and manage skills gaps whilst minimising production downtime. They also needed to integrate data from legacy systems and make this available in a central location to evidence employee compliance.

The results

The flexibility and accessibility of Kallidus LMS has had key business benefits, and has enabled United Biscuits to make a significant return on investment.

  • With e-learning costing just £8 per head, per session, compared with £78 for classroom learning, United Biscuits reduced training costs by 89% and saved almost 500 staff hours in the first three months alone.

  • 24/7 multi-platform capability has enabled staff to access learning at the time of need, whether they are onsite or at home.

  • Given that every three years a third of the food-handling workforce need to refresh their safety training, Kallidus LMS will produce substantial savings when implemented across Europe and beyond.
