Future People is dedicated to recruiting, developing and engaging front-line employees in order to facilitate a more positive customer experience that translates into measurable improvements to the corporate bottom line.
Through a people-centric approach Future People seek to create engagement among key stakeholders by providing them with the tools necessary to improve their emotional intelligence (EI). In doing so, employees are empowered to enhance their customer service skills, subsequently boosting internal productivity and the performance of front-line recruits.
In order to bring their learning to life, Future People became a licensee of Guroo ProducerTM, enabling them to create an engaging, personalised eLearning program that effectively communicated their key messages to learners.
Having designed a clear strategy for delivering a program that would boost the service skills and performance of employees, Future People were in search of an uncomplicated authoring tool capable of framing their content and generating measurable results for their clients.
By becoming a licensee of Guroo ProducerTM, Future People were capable of delivering a professional eLearning program for market sale that was self-paced, visually engaging and did not require advanced technical or design skills to develop.
In order to deploy the program online and collect, segregate and secure sensitive data, Future People engaged our xAPI hosting cloud individually for each of their clients.

Future People’s licensing journey:
Having formulated a business model which harnesses the power of eLearning combined with Future People’s unique approach towards developing the emotional intelligence of corporate front-line employees, the organisation were in search of a product or service to bring their program to life. Offering a DIY production approach, Future People became licensees of Guroo ProducerTM.
With it’s inbuilt beauty and intelligent design magic, PRODUCER eliminated the need for Future People to outsource or exhaust internal resources by removing complex production elements such as layering and triggers, granting them additional time to spend scripting content. The simplistic user interface and agile software capabilities empowered Future People to develop their program quickly within an established time frame, while the softwares duplication features allowed them to reproduce and recontextualise the program with minimal rework to suit the specific needs of their clients.
The ‘Emotional fitness’ program incorporated
an array of features intended to boost engagement and measure learner experiences to inform client strategies moving forward. These include;
- Videos and Illustrations

In addition to licensing, Future People engaged Guroo’s hosting cloud to deploy the program across multiple organisations. Each activity was designed to be completed in under 15 minutes, and daily reminders kept participants on track to ensure that they were using the program daily.
The unique and engaging nature of the program supported and LMS-free deployment, while xAPI cloud hosting allowed progress to be tracked.
Future People developed their project over a 6-month period using our design and authoring tool, the program comprised of 60 learning experiences, 117 videos, 49 coaching scenarios, 22 workplace activities and 38 learning activities. Since its development, ‘Emotional Fitness’ has been successfully implemented by a number of large corporate clients across the banking, finance and government sectors.

Additionally, results reflected a 75% completion rate over the 19 week program, with 50% of non-completion having been caused by staff attrition.
