BFS Corporate Front

Large corporations such as McDonalds, Apple, Danone and General Motors have for decades used ‘corporate academies’ to upskill their frontline and management staff in-house. But for the majority of companies, limited training budgets and lack of staff time and resources has made the development of in-house universities or academies impractical.
