How to make the focus on GoodHabitz fun.

We wondered: will people use the time spent at home during lockdown to work on their personal development? Now that they’re forced to work from home and limit social contact, they might just have some spare time to spend watching Netflix, reading a book… or doing a GoodHabitz course. In the early weeks of quarantine, we were curious to see what would happen. Now we know: we love learning in our free time! How do people do in your organisation?

Dig into the numbers.

The number of lessons completed on last April - the first full month of lockdown - was 4 times that of a regular month. Our advice to all of our clients? Dig into your organisation’s reports and share the outcomes with important stakeholders. There’s a good chance use of GoodHabitz has soared over the past months, even though you may not have been preoccupied with activation at all.

Go for activation, especially now!

Imagine what would happen if you did activate your employees. What if you were to show them the impressive numbers you’ve gathered and share the 5 most popular courses within your organisation? First of all, it would create a sense of urgency (“All of my co-workers are doing training courses - why haven’t I started yet?”). Secondly, it makes it a lot easier for individuals to start (“This course is really popular among my peers, I should give it a go”). And it works: usage numbers have gone up the most in organisations that encourage their employees to give GoodHabitz a try.

Ask the study fiends.

Another important factor: the ambassadors. The study fiends and knowledge junkies who have completed several training courses during lockdown and earned ten or more certificates (they exist!). Interview your most fervent employees. Which courses did they do? What do they appreciate about those courses? How do they approach learning? And how do they use the things they’ve learned in the courses in their day-to-day? Write an article about them or share a video among your employees. It’s all about leading by example!


A nifty new feature for administrators: from now on, people with the new Admin role can give others specific access to the dashboard. A Reporter, for example, can view all your organisation’s user statistics. Admins can assign, change and remove roles as they see fit. They can also add an extra Admin. It’s safe and easy! One of our former features has made a comeback: contacts who have an Account Manager role can suggest training courses to everyone in the organisation or specific groups or teams. This tool makes it much easier to highlight the most popular or most relevant courses. Win!
