Luxottica University: digital training that puts people first

Caring for people has always been a fundamental principle for Luxottica, and this means caring for their training and development as well. This is why the Group has created a specific department exclusively devoted to training its employees and customers, applying methods and techniques that have evolved with the company and become increasingly digital.

It is called Luxottica University and its objective is to create a culture of effective, engaging training, which is crucial to attracting and retaining talented, capable people. Luxottica knows that investing in training means investing in the well-being of each individual worker and in the future of the company.

It is called Luxottica University and its objective is to create a culture of effective, engaging training, which is crucial to attracting and retaining talented, capable people. Luxottica knows that investing in training means investing in the well-being of each individual worker and in the future of the company. It also knows that training should be tailored to each trainee’s needs and development path. Luxottica University offers hundreds of courses for employees and wholesale customers. In addition, a pilot project is making inroads at the company’s factories for the gradual creation of a publication with special content for production workers.

In 2019, 65% of training hours were online, alongside more traditional classroom lessons and in-store training with specialists. To meet the needs of modern users, Luxottica has recently launched a new and more effective version of its platform to deliver a more engaging, targeted learning experience.

The way in which we learn is constantly changing, and the pace of our lives and our attention spans are changing with it. A user-friendly platform encourages users over time by sending, for example, capsule lessons on fundamental topics for personal and professional growth. Furthermore, digital learning can more rapidly adapt to a broad and varied population like Luxottica’s, reaching more and more people despite their different positions and work routines. This is even more advantageous when we consider the shift towards working remotely and a worker’s need for flexibility.

This is the key to the new platform’s success: those who want to invest even only five to ten minutes of their time can do so, whenever they want, from any device, even their phone. It puts a powerful tool at their fingertips to learn about brands, products, sales rituals and trends. With Luxottica University and its online courses, virtual lessons and classroom sessions cover a vast range of topics, from Luxottica products to the development of soft skills.

Luxottica University aims to be more than a training platform, and by taking a new approach to the world of workers, in all its facets, Luxottica University has created added value for people and their development.
