As per studies, many employees claim online training programs to be boring and useless. This is where the Belgian learning and development startup Stellar Labs comes to play. It combines neuroscience and human behaviour with business and technology to increase the effectiveness of professional training. This is intended to enhance business results and prepare employees for Industry 4.0.

Remote working calls for improved online training

Now, Stellar Labs has bagged £1.5M funding from angel investors, the Flemish Agency for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO), Private equity firm PMV and private bank loans. Founded by Raf Seymus, a Belgian entrepreneur and Stella Collins, a British learning expert, Stellar Labs will use the investment to grow and meet the demand for digital training solutions at a time when working from home seems to stay.

British co-founder, Stella Collins said, “Too often companies think that new technology is the key to learning, when it is only a means. The momentous shift to remote working as a result of the pandemic has accelerated the need to evolve digital learning from an added on tick-the-box exercise to a valuable, actionable solution that businesses can be confident is worth the investment.”

“Looking at the perspective of employees and companies is what sets Stellar Labs apart from others. There is no point investing in training initiatives or technologies if you do not have an effective method with a measurable return for the company.” added Raf Seymus, Belgian co-founder.

Tailor-made learning programmes

Stellar Labs develops custom learning programmes for clients, improves existing learning methods and trains in-house experts so that they can better educate their colleagues. Also, the company develops a wide range of open programmes with future-proof skills for both companies and individuals.

The company focuses on how people learn and is completely based on science. It engages, structures processes, and embraces data and technology to support the transfer of knowledge and skill. The overall hybrid learning format is modular and combines digital training along with interactive workshops. The other characteristics include collaboration with mentors and colleagues, work-based assignments and spaced repetition. All these are known to optimise the transfer of skill and knowledge into behaviour change in the workplace.
