The Eni Corporate University (ECU) is dedicated to developing managerial and technical skills across Eni; and Baker Hughes training is part of its curriculum.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic created travel and assembly restrictions that prevented trainees from traveling to Italy as planned, or even gathering together for classroom sessions in Mozambique. Not only did this create short-term training issues for these 16 people, but it also put Eni's long-term development path at risk for all its employees.
ECU asked us to switch from classroom to remote training. Three months before the scheduled start date, the Baker Hughes training team set out to design a flexible new digital methodology so Eni's employees could safely proceed with their learning path.
