The idea of a battle quiz arose during a brainstorming session, says Marc Van Hoeck, COO at Organic Bakery De Trog and partner at valueXstream. “Hygiene and food safety are crucial for the bakery. Our agency workers, including those who do not speak Dutch, must be deployable within a short time.” valueXstream worked together with the innovation agency NewBird. Their social learning platform BattleQuiz was a good fit with the ambitions of De Trog. Both valueXstream and NewBird are part of the Gumption Group.
“Hygiëne en voedselveiligheid zijn cruciaal voor een bakkerij. Ook onze tijdelijke medewerkers, onder wie anderstaligen, moeten in korte tijd inzetbaar zijn.”
Marc Van Hoeck, COO Bio Bakkerij De Trog
With the use of BakeryBattle, new employees can be deployed within the hour. They challenge each other to knowledge battles, from beginner to advanced. The competitive element ensures that the learning process is fun and stimulates people to play regularly. Each battle consists of seven questions. The app can be played on a smartphone, tablet or pc.
New employees play the game during their training. More experienced staff take part in the Grand BakeryBattle, which is played three times per year and which takes a month. In this way, the knowledge of our one hundred employees is kept up-to-date. The management can monitor the game results: they show the evolution of the knowledge.
“BakeryBattle is built on the foundations of our BattleQuiz platform, and adapted to the needs of the customer”, says Antoon Sturkenboom, managing partner of NewBird. “BattleQuiz can easily be adapted for various purposes and learning objectives. The customer supplies the content, and NewBird takes care of the rest.”
