Employees, managers and even executives can:

  • Engage with managers - Complete 1on1s and coaching sessions in the moment, tracking tasks, goals and achievements along the way

Why we built it:

According to a recent study from the Economist Intelligence Unit, workers who say their employers use mobile technology well are typically more productive, creative, satisfied and loyal.

The Bridge Mobile App gives employers the ability to empower employee development both in and outside of the office, which can result in:
  • Meaningful connection with coworkers, managers, and mentors
  • More opportunities to learn and grow outside of the office
  • Increased efficiency and alignment from mobile access, to 1on1 agendas, task tracking, and goals & achievements

FAQ:

  • Where can I download the app? App Store: https://apps.apple.com/app/apple-store/id1451995049 Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instructure.bridge&referrer=utm_source%3D1-pager%26utm_medium%3Demail
  • Can customers who are only using the Learn (the LMS only) still access the mobile app? The app’s functionality is geared more towards those customers who are currently using the entire Employee Development platform, however, “Learn only” customers can use a limited version of the app that includes mobile courses. Learning items are currently launched within a web-view (a mobile browser shown within the app). Those using the Employee Development platform will get access to mobile courses, 1on1's, and employee profiles.
  • Which mobile platforms will be supported? iOS and Android
  • What are some examples of features that will be added post launch? Tablet support, faster and easier to use learning, push notifications, detailed Holly search, calendar integration, and much more!
