AXA PPP healthcare has been helping people to access healthcare services since 1940. Today it forms the UK healthcare arm of AXA and provides healthcare cover for individuals and employers, with around two million customers. It employs around 2,000 staff who work across six sites in Tunbridge Wells and an office in Leicester.

Over the past few years AXA PPP healthcare has seen a significant rise in interest from prospective clients on its approach to corporate responsibility and, in particular, its environmental policies.
Despite implementing a range of environmentally friendly initiatives (including drives to reduce energy consumption, installing solar panels for lighting and increasing recycled paper use), AXA PPP did not hold any formal, externally recognised accreditation prior to 2008 that would enable it to more robustly demonstrate to enquirers and prospective clients its environmental credentials which, to maintain its competitive edge, needed addressing.

Winner of the silver award in the Meeting the needs of compliance for an external regulator or an internal workforce category at the e-learning awards 2009, this case study describes how the health insurer successfully secured compliance with the leading internationally recognised standard for managing and reducing the impact of activities on the environment – ISO14001.
Background to ISO 14001 with e-learning.

Commenting on the ISO 14001 achievement, Keith Gibbs, AXA PPP healthcare’s chief executive, said:
 “We’ve made great strides to improve our environmental performance and I am proud of the way our employees have responded so positively to this challenge.”

Top tips from this case study:

  • Ensure compliance with new environmental legislation to emphasise your green credentials and remain competitive.
  • Ensure the solution has the lowest impact on the environment and learner time.
  • Develop a coherent communications plan to keep everyone fully informed.
  • Realise real cost savings by practically eliminating all validation, printing and travel costs using e-Learning.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
