Roll’d selects to power employee learning and training via Roll’d University

Roll’d, one of Australia’s fastest growing food franchises, has selected, the content hub that allows companies to upscale their workforce with on-demand training, as its preferred workplace training partner.

The agreement will cover 83 Roll’d locations which serve Vietnamese hawker-style food. Around 1500 employees and franchisees will benefit from the Go1-powered Roll’d University – online and mobile app – which provides open learning in a range of areas aimed at skills improvement.

They will be able to access 70,000 pieces of learning content, including Roll’d-specific knowledge (skills aimed specifically at franchisees), industry-specific courses (such as compliance training) and soft skills learning items (eg communication, sales and leadership skills).  

Roll’d CEO and co-founder, Bao Hoang, said trying to train all staff members has proven to be a challenge over the years.

“When we came across Go1 we were immediately attracted by how easy it was to use,” Mr Hoang said. “One of the key things we found appealing was that Go1 is cloud based, meaning courses can be accessed from anywhere, anytime and on any device.

“Giving staff the opportunity to gain training on the job is very beneficial to Roll’d as a business but it’s not just about us. Training is great for their personal development, and we’re pleased to have found a partner in Go1 who takes care of that aspect for all employees,” Mr Hoang said.

Fellow Roll’d co-founder Ray Esquieres said Go1 offers flexibility and training on-demand so staff can choose when to learn.

“Go1 delivers information and training in a way that isn’t text-based only and meets the needs of people where English isn’t their first language. Staff were previously confined to their computers when undergoing training but now with Go1 we can be mobile. This partnership allows us to deliver content (courses) in a way our staff actually prefer to consume – via their mobiles,” Mr Esquieres said.
