Beter Bed has received the SkillsTown Achievement Award for exceptional online learning performance for its online learning platform the ‘Beter Bed Academy’. Over a period of two years, the Beter Bed Academy has achieved 18,000 completed modules with 75% active users.

Hans Schuurmans, CEO of SkillsTown, explained: “Our aim with SkillsTown is to help organisations improve their performance. We are happy to raise awareness of any organisation that takes an active, leading role in this respect. Over the past few years, Beter Bed has used online learning in a unique and inspiring manner, not only to improve the performance of its staff but also to work on sustainability. An exceptional performance. They are the worthy winner of this Achievement Award.”

“We are very proud of having won this award. It endorses the successful and inspiring way of online learning that we offer our staff with the Beter Bed Academy, thanks to SkillsTown”, says Lineke Bernhard, HR Manager Benelux at Beter Bed Holding. “We, at Beter Bed, believe that if people can sleep better, they are happier, healthier and more productive. We include this in everything we do every day. Staff are given the scope to continue to learn and develop.”

The aim of the Beter Bed Academy is to inspire our staff to broaden their knowledge in a fun and practical way, based on a whole range of innovative learning interventions. As a result, we have achieved 75% active users over a full 2-year period. A score of 18,000 completed modules is a huge performance. One reason for the success is the low threshold of the Beter Bed Academy, our own added content and the provision of learning along skills pathways. The Beter Bed Academy is an integrated element of our recurring staff interview cycle: staff and management consult regularly on how the Beter Bed Academy can contribute to the professional development of every staff member.
