Hormel set out to make better use of their sales team’s windshield time on the road by using podcasts to arm them with audio versions of relevant training materials. In our most recent customer webinar, Hormel Foodservice’s Sales Training Manager, Grant Heselschwerdt, explained that podcasting has given their team access to learning and development in ways that traditional forms of training could not.
During our discussion with Grant, he shared how Hormel’s enablement podcast has improved their training process and allowed reps to better understand the customer experience while in turn having a positive impact on the company’s culture and talent churn.
Here are a few highlights:
