Struggles at the Beginning
CoreAxis has been very fortunate through the growth of its industry and company. Its clients are what drive its passion for success. Its consulting and delivery team continue to push the envelope, as it relates to delivering just-in-time solutions for its clients. The primary goal has always been to serve as a trusted advisor for its clients. As part of its offerings, CoreAxis builds upon transformational initiatives and programs to deliver impactful training and development solutions. Throughout the past 18+ years, CoreAxis has seen significant success, even when the market was not ready for innovation and scale. When the economy struggled in 2009, CoreAxis adapted its business to meet many of its clients’ needs as they were retracting their workforce. That adaptation allowed CoreAxis to work with its clients on the reskilling of talent and knowledge management. That was a challenging time in its journey but through its agile business model, CoreAxis was able to thrive.

Contribution in the Industry
There is incredible fragmentation in the Learning & Development marketplace. Many companies cannot offer a managed services solution for their clients and that makes it a challenge for companies to manage several vendors where they can receive incredible, cost effective consulting from a company like CoreAxis. Additionally, from a delivery aspect, appealing to a multi-generational audience is a challenge as well. With the workforce comprised of Baby Boomers to millennials there are many effective methods to deliver training. Accounting for multiple backgrounds, experiences, age groups, etc. corporate training must be agile and adaptable.
Learning & Development (L&D) top challenges are tied to demonstrating business impact. Learning professionals must show what they can deliver to the business. The tangible benefits of L&D innovation and technology transformation can be difficult to quantify but it’s about staying relevant and ensuring organizations are equipped to succeed in the modern business world. CoreAxis approaches each engagement with the goal of helping our clients meet their business objectives.
Furthermore, the CoreAxis team believes that the L&D learning community should strive to become strategic business partners contributing significantly to, and aligned with, the business outcomes of clients. They must not get left behind by the rate of technology change and should rely on their own knowledge of technology and products, not just defer to IT, becoming more fluent in the language of digital and technology.
Looking to the Future
CoreAxis continues to innovate and build impactful solutions for its clients and continues to expand its client base through delivering custom solutions. Ahead of the industry curve, CoreAxis is collaborating with its clients to provide VR/AR solutions and believes that large global firms will soon integrate these technology solutions into their offerings & culture as a matter of course. CoreAxis continues to hire the top talent and consultants in the marketplace to increase the ‘bench strength’ of its instructional designers and content developers, ensuring that they are highly skilled in the latest technologies and learning trends. This allows the company to remain an innovator when it comes to delivering custom solutions that include gamification, virtual training, & micro-learning. In 2018, CoreAxis saw an increase in requests for virtual learning along with more sophisticated eLearning. This trend has allowed the company to take the innovative approach to developing solutions that can easily be adapted to different modalities, as the client’s needs evolve. Finally, the Leadership Development offerings continue to scale to provide world-class custom programs for its clients.
