The story

The client

HP likely needs no introduction, but as a global technology and chip manufacturing company - with 50,000 employees and an industry that's changing weekly - their needs are as complex as they get.

The challenge

As the industry's pace of change got faster, HP realized their L&D team was quickly becoming outpaced by the business and couldn't prove results. From new leadership essentials to understanding new products, they realized they needed a brand new way of training that would teach skills as fast as the industry required them. They also knew that, with a huge global and distributed workforce, everything had to be dynamic and well adopted.

The solution and implementation

With Arist, HP started with a transformative program that was built in weeks — not months — pushing learning directly in MS Teams. The best part? HP needed to distribute learning to the entire global organization, and was able to do so rapidly.

The Impact

For employees

HP employees were used to training that took hours and showed little result, other than pulling them away from work. Employees now had content that they could access in one click, that met them right where they were. Many felt a learning buddy right in MS Teams changed their workday.

For the L&D team

The L&D team could launch courses in hours rather than months, seeing 5x course creation with AI. They no longer had to rely on spending all of their time marketing either, since they could now send a few nudges right in MS Teams to get them to 100% adoption. With much more data, the L&D Team when from creators to strategists. They even saw zero drop off in long-term engagement.

For the organization

HP globally saw broad people skills development and far faster alignment among 50,000 employees. With sales enablement, they also meaningfully increased the speed at which they could launch new products. Safe to say, in a competitive market L&D gave HP a real competitive edge.

FAQ

FAQ

Is Arist an LMS or an LXP? Can I use it instead of my existing tools?

Arist has all of the functionality of an LMS and LXP, including course creation, hosting, assignment, learner management, and analytics. But it's an entirely new category.

The main difference between Arist and a traditional LMS is that Arist uses Stanford research to deliver interactive content via existing messaging tools like SMS, WhatsApp, and Microsoft Teams instead of traditional video courses and e-learning modules that don't get adoption.

By meeting learners where they are, Arist sees much higher completion, adoption, and satisfaction rates than courses delivered via an LMS (over 90%). Arist is also far more behaviorally effective.

Some of our clients use Arist alongside their existing LMS and LXP, and Arist can easily integrate with your existing learning ecosystem. Some of our clients replace their ecosystem with Arist — it's up to you.

My employees are hourly or don't get work devices. Can they use Arist?

Yes. Arist has industry-leading technology that enables employees to securely and compliantly learn on their personal device. This includes seamless opt-in and opt-out features, automatic phone number encryption, toll-free message delivery, and FLSA-compliant shift locking for hourly employees.

Arist also has built-in wage & hour compliance and shift scheduling integration, which lets hourly employees use their personal devices for learning in a compliant and secure way without incurring additional costs.

Arist works with carriers to ensure that all messages are toll-free.

Do certain age groups prefer Arist more than others?

No. Our research has found no meaningful difference in adoption or satisfaction rates by age group, with older learners enjoying Arist courses more by a few percentage points.

The core reason: nearly everyone uses texting or email to communicate with their friends, colleagues, and loved ones, making messages a comfortable medium for all.

The tools we already use — like Slack, Teams, SMS, and WhatsApp — have the lowest barrier to entry or adoption. Learning and comms become accessible in 1-click to everyone, versus 7 clicks in an LMS or portal.
