ADVICS may be one of the largest manufacturers of automobile brakes, but nothing is slowing it down. The company name is an acronym for Advanced Integrated Chassis Systems. Owned by a Japanese parent company, ADVICS' North American operation is growing rapidly and now has six locations and more than 2,000 employees in the US and Mexico. A collision of factors led ADVICS to prioritize its employee learning and development program — which quickly led the company to OpenSesame. Learning and Development Gets the Green Light When Christina Pellegrini joined ADVICS as a Senior Specialist in the Corporate Training and Development department, the company didn't have a formal training and development division in North America. "I was hired to help build the department, but right away we were hit with some challenges, including the onset of the pandemic," she says. The impact of pandemic reinforced the need for professional training that could be delivered remotely. ADVICS started by implementing a Learning Management System (LMS). "With just myself in the department to start, I didn't have the time or resources to develop content," says Pellegrini. "We received a free sampling of OpenSesame courses through the LMS, and I was super impressed by the content. It's relevant, current, extensive, and well done. So, I reached out to OpenSesame to learn more." Driving Training for a Global Workforce With a growing workforce in Mexico, ADVICS plans to leverage the extensive selection of Spanish language content available through OpenSesame. In addition, Pellegrini has curated a collection of courses available in Japanese and made them available to the teams in that country. "I'm impressed by the volume of multi-language content OpenSesame has available to us," she says.
