Overview of Acorn benefits

User Engagement: The intuitive Learning Experience Platform (LXP) automatically populates relevant content for learners based on their consumption habits and capabilities. This ensures the right content is mapped to the right learner, charting their learning and career pathways.

Employee Experience: Harness an employee’s full potential from onboarding by capturing their current skillset, previous experience and pre-commencement information. This is fed into integrated systems and gives organisations the information they need to provide a positive experience.

Workforce Planning: Acorn’s workforce planning tool uses the LXP and Skills Cloud to identify gaps in skillsets, development opportunities, and ensure organisations have the right human capital when they need it. Skills can be mapped to job roles and specific capabilities.

Advanced Reporting: Track, monitor and chart learner pathways and completions with Acorn’s customisable reporting dashboard. Schedule automatic reports to internal and external stakeholders for ease of use.

Security: Based in Canberra and hosted in Sydney – the Acorn team adheres to strict industry standards. Acorn is IRAP assessed, ISO 27001 certified and offers the highest compliance standards.

Integrations: Acorn works to integrate seamlessly with over 30 existing systems, making it simple and easy to implement the platform. It can integrate into existing payroll and HR systems.

Support: You’ll have a dedicated Customer Relationship Manager plus the expertise of the development team. You’ll also have access to an up-to-date wiki which includes tipsheets and guides. We also offer ongoing training sessions hosted here in Australia with the first two training sessions free.
