Etihad Airways’ World-Class Sales Team Receives First-Class Training

Etihad Airways, the UAE's second-largest airline, began operations in 2003. The country's second flag carrier airline found it difficult to keep up with the volatile nature of the aviation business. It is also difficult for a corporation to estimate the nature of work after 6-12 months when it accumulates. Etihad's prior experience with e-modules had been restricted in terms of communication, therefore they were searching for a frontline-focused learning management system that could expedite learning and communication. Solution The aviation sector is fast-paced and competitive. Every day is different for Etihad Airways' managers, and the nature of their work necessitates a high level of efficiency from the workers. In this aspect, Etihad might stay up with the aviation industry's complexity by including Axonify into their performance monitoring structure. They wanted to create a sales process that was created by salespeople for salespeople. According to Etihad, Axonify's key selling point is the concept of daily learning, which their staff found user-friendly and exceedingly simple to understand. Graham Cook, the Manager of Commercial Performance, sees employees utilising Axonify on a daily basis to confirm their existing knowledge as "time well spent" and sees it as the greatest approach to avoid generic and monotonous training sessions. Etihad's use of Axonify as a medium to communicate and roll out updates in real-time is a crucial aspect. This improves the efficiency of Etihad's divisions while also informing everyone about the many changes that are occurring both internally and internationally. Impact Etihad noted a significant increase in engagement as their sales staff completed approximately 4,500-5,000 additional Axonify training sessions. This definitely demonstrates their excitement at work, which is a genuinely desirable attribute for an organization's frontline. Furthermore, Etihad saw a 10% increase in participation rate after implementing Axonify, with more than two-thirds of their sales team utilising this training product. Furthermore, this frontline training tool empowered Etihad's salespeople to approach their market and consumers with confidence. Axonify has enabled the organisation to send a positive message, which has had a significant impact on Etihad's work culture.

How Etihad Airways Clarified their Development Vision with Axonify

Introduction Etihad is a large international airline based in Abu Dhabi, providing service to more than 400 destinations in 74 countries around the world. Founded in 2003, we have more than 100 aircraft with revenues upward of $6 billion each year. The Abu Dhabi-based international airline wanted to improve Etihad wanted to improve performance by examining all forms of learning across the organisation. One of their biggest emerging problems was customer service and satisfaction. Their Net Promoter Score (NPS) was too low to establish the kind of success and growth they planned for their future. However, they lacked the proper internal development capabilities to move the needle significantly. The company had clear goals that had to be achieved. To begin with, they needed to develop a clear framework for staff improvement and a simple model to demonstrate excellence. Along with this, the company had recognised universal knowledge points but had to find a method to convey them through an always-accessible training format. With content published daily, Etihad needed a cohesive training format and central hosting location. Solution Etihad realised that leadership and management skills do not come automatically to employees but need to be guided to do so. Etihad Airways decided to run a pilot program for their frontline employees. They eventually expanded to cover Mastering the Art of Service training to enhance their customer service skills. Furthermore, they began using Axonify for more than just hosting videos. This revolutionary training solution allowed the company to track individual and group progress. This benefited Etihad Airways as their senior managers could monitor employee training performance and be more strategic about future development modules. Impact Etihad Airways observed a significant increase in employee engagement around training and development. Their NPS had skyrocketed, increasing by 30 points, and they benefitted from the possibility of leading to more customer referrals while increasing customer satisfaction. Andrew Stotter-Brooks, the Vice President of Learning & Development, claimed that Axonify was the model that helped them promote better employee growth. He further summarised the modern learning solution using three concepts – “clarity, simplicity, and making learning fun.”

First-class training for a world-class sales team at Etihad Airways

Introduction Etihad Airways is the second-largest airline in the UAE and commenced its operations in 2003. The second flag carrier airline of the country found it challenging to keep up with the dynamic nature of the aviation industry. It’s also highly demanding for a company to forecast the nature of work after 6-12 months when it piles up. Etihad’s previous history with e-modules was limited in communication, and they were looking for a frontline-focused learning management system that could streamline learning and communication.  Solution The aviation industry is highly dynamic and competitive. Every day looks different for the managers of Etihad Airways, and the nature of their work demands a high-efficiency rate from the workforce. In regards to this, Etihad could keep up with the complex nature of the airline industry by inculcating Axonify to their performance measurement structure. They aimed to develop a sales process designed by salespeople for salespeople. According to Etihad, the concept of daily learning Axonify brings to the table is its real selling point, as their employees found it user-friendly and incredibly simple to understand. Graham Cook, the Manager of Commercial Performance, finds employees using Axonify daily to reaffirm their existing knowledge as “time well spent” and sees it as the best solution to escape the generic and boring training modules. A key feature of Axonify utilised by Etihad is using this tool as a medium to communicate and roll out changes in real-time. This increases the efficiency of Etihad’s departments and informs everyone about the various changes taking place internally and externally. Impact Etihad noticed a massive increase in their engagement rate, as their sales staff completed around 4,500-5,000 extra training sessions on Axonify. This clearly depicts their enthusiasm at work, which is genuinely an ideal quality required by an organisation’s frontline. Furthermore, Etihad observed a 10% improvement in participation rate after using Axonify, with more than 2/3rd of their sales team engaging with this training solution. Moreover, this frontline training tool left Etihad’s salespeople empowered to confidently approach their market and customers.
