eJournal Award for fischer academy

Excellent webinars

The fischer academy received the eJournal award 2020 in the “webinar” category. In the competition 200 contributions in 57 categories were awarded. Each year, the eLearn-ing Journal honours the most innovative training offers.

Flexible education without having to travel to and from traditional seminars – webinars offer many advantages, which are more than ever in demand in the current Corona pandemic. Especially within companies learning skills in digital form plays an increas-ingly important role to ensure long-term success. Accordingly, the fischer Group of Companies relies on webinars in addition to face-to-face training. These can be called up anytime and an-ywhere.

“Via webinars we provide our various business units with opti-mum support during market launches in order to convey the technical know-how on new products to our national companies and importers”, explains Frank Neltner, Head of fischer acad-emy. “The main idea is to make a product introduction interest-ing, credible and sustainable in the long term.” fischer academy trainer Stefan Huber has been involved in the “Digital Live Train-ing” project since 2018 and explains: “We strive to bring the webinars to a similar level as our face-to-face trainings. This in-cludes that we as trainers explain and assemble the product just as we do in an on-site training. Individual questions of the par-ticipants are answered directly.” That way the experts set stand-ards in terms of “digital empathy”.
