Bite-Sized Learning for Busy Cleaning Operatives
Jangro’s high quality and versatile online training platform is enhanced with the introduction of new
Task Cards
J
angro, the UK & Ireland’s largest
network of independent janitorial suppliers, has enhanced its
online training platform: the Learning
Management Solution. It is now even
more versatile and accessible,
thanks to the introduction of new
cleaning guide shorts, called Task
Cards.
As well as offering animated video
shorts to help operatives train to perform
a range of specific cleaning jobs, the
task cards themselves are brief, highly
visual documents containing step-bystep instructions for product usage and
safety information. The first three task
cards are available now to download
from jangrolms.net and feature the modules:



How to mop a floor
How to clean and organise cupboards
How to clean a toilet
LMS users will need to log in to their LMS
account to view the accompanying
animated video shorts.

Busy operatives can find it challenging to
attend training courses due to time and
resource constraints. Courses often take
place during working hours, and there
might be travel involved to take part –
which becomes more of a challenge and
causes greater disruption with ongoing
training programmes requiring multiple
sessions. There are also higher costs to
a business associated with sending operatives on training courses, including
travel and the cost of the courses themselves, not to mention the cost of lost
work if courses take place during working
hours. The benefit of the LMS is that
course lengths vary, with users able to
train remotely at times that suit them.
This allows cleaning operatives to dip in
and out of short sessions or longer ses-
sions, making learning highly flexible
and accessible.
Joanne Gilliard, Operations Director,
says: “Part of our mission here at Jangro
is to make high quality training as accessible as possible for our customers. We
have spent over six years developing
this free, fully interactive e-learning platform, and are constantly refining and
updating it. The introduction of our new
Task Cards make bite-sized training
even more user-friendly and versatile”.
The Jangro Learning Management
Solution is designed to give their
customers the tools to get their teams
fully trained quickly, so that they can offer
the very best cleaning service possible.
