Turner makes all of its courses available to all of its personnel, encouraging them to browse the catalog and follow their interests. Some courses, like compliance training or career development paths are required. Other courses cover technical skills, leadership skills, computer training, and cybersecurity. "I like that for every topic, we can offer two or three choices to employees — and they're all great," says Ambrass. "I've even gotten positive feedback from employees about a compliance course. That speaks to both the quantity and quality of courses in OpenSesame's catalog." Compliance training courses through OpenSesame have been one of the biggest wins for Turner. "We have offices all across the country, and compliance mandates vary by state," explains Ambrass. "Many states have different requirements for harassment training, for example. I've always been able to find every course we need in OpenSesame's library. I can't imagine how much time it would take me to stay current on the changing mandates and then locate updated curriculum. OpenSesame does that for me." "During the pandemic, OpenSesame made an amazing gesture to their clients," explains Ambrass. "They made dozens of courses available to customers for free. There were courses on meditation, working from home, and disease transmission, for example. Our CEO spoke about the courses at weekly online meetings and got tremendously positive feedback from staff who'd taken some of the courses." She concludes, "Continuous learning is part of Turner's corporate culture — we place a very high value on it. A well-trained, highly-skilled, informed and empowered workforce makes us a better company." OpenSesame's pricing and licensing model is ideal for Turner. "We have access to a multitude of courses, swapping them out frequently to meet changing training needs," Ambrass explains. "And OpenSesame is very flexible in the way they license seats for the software, which is ideal for us since as a general contractor." Turner uses a Learning Management System (LMS), and OpenSesame imakes it easy to upload courses to the LMS. "That, of course, is important to us," Ambrass says. "It provides a seamless experience for our learners while ensuring we can track and manage training throughout the organization."
