The company has earned recognition for undertaking large, complex projects, constantly innovating, embracing emerging technologies, and making a difference for their clients, employees, and communities. Continual learning is part of the company's culture, and with OpenSesame, Turner can provide high-quality training courses easily and cost-effectively to its entire workforce. "Before OpenSesame, we relied on several different curriculum vendors," says Chrisie Ambrass, Senior Development Manager at Turner. "We switched to OpenSesame because we wanted consistency. When a new topic came up, we wanted one source for training on that topic. OpenSesame has an enormous breadth of quality content that makes that possible." Previously, Ambrass recalls that it could take six to eight weeks to launch a new training course. "We'd need to find a vendor that had the curriculum, vet the content, vet the vendor, and then negotiate a licensing agreement," she says. "With OpenSesame, we can have a new training class in front of learners in just a few days." Partnering with a single source provider provides Ambrass with the luxury of more time in her day. "Rather than Googling course topics, I can take a deeper look at the variety of courses in OpenSesame's catalog and include new and interesting courses in our library. I feel like I'm doing more than checking a box — I'm finding classes that people enjoy and find value in." Ambrass appreciates the breadth of content available from OpenSesame, and the quality and variety of that content. "I've yet to search for a topic that OpenSesame didn't have a course for — and usually multiple options," she says. "I recently went looking for courses on a new trends in sustainable construction — and found them on OpenSesame." Single Source Provider Saves Weeks of Hassle Comprehensive Content Library A well-trained, highly-skilled, informed and empowered workforce makes us a better company."
