As well as helping clients solve their business challenges, we are delighted our digital learning solutions also have a positive effect for Scotland as a whole, helping to create a more successful country. eCom identifies with the Scottish Government’s five strategic objectives and here are some examples of the ways we’re helping Scotland flourish.
5 Strategic Objectives
Create a more successful country
Allowing us to improve the lives of local people, and improve the different situations that our clients find themselves in.
Give opportunities to all people living in Scotland
Our passion is to help our clients develop a capable workforce and that these opportunities should be available to all who require it.
Increase the wellbeing of people living in Scotland
With our award winning online training platforms you can be sure that our health sector is getting the very best and most cost effective means in the market.
Create sustainable and inclusive growth
Technology is vital in order to contribute to the economy. With 25 years experience, we are a valued and trusted employer with innovation being our main focus to prepare for the future.
Support economic, social & environmental progress
We have a valued track record of working with clients who are environmentally aware, as well as offering our own contributions on how they can achieve this effectively.
Our digital learning solutions help our clients’ to be successful, which has a positive impact for their organisations, as well as for Scotland.
Each new contract we win, enables us to remain profitable and contribute to a sustainable Scottish economy. We are able to create skilled jobs at our offices in Scotland, recruit and retain the right team members in those roles and make sure they are fairly rewarded for the work they do - we’re committed to paying at least the living wage in all cases.
Our team like to see others in the community benefit too and are supporting good causes of their choosing. To help them do so, we’re pleased to offer flexible working arrange-ments enabling them to make a positive difference in Scotland.
It is hugely important to us that our team, their families, our clients, the local area and the wider community and the economy all benefit from what we do.
Our eLearning helps clients develop a capable workforce and we can also assist with digital accreditation, so learners can evidence their achievements. The digital badges apply to their current role and they can continue to add badges throughout their career, even if they change roles or organisations.
We're also contributing to life-long learning in other ways. We strive to promote an environment in which as many people as possible are given the opportunity to excel. We've recently become one of the official sponsors for Spartans SWPL team, as well as Kirkcaldy ice hockey club. These strong links with the local community are with organisations whose values mirror our own.
We have a wealth of experience developing eLearning that has a positive impact on both the physical and mental health of those in Scotland. Here are some of the projects in this category:
- NHS Scotland – We've worked on various projects for NHS Scotland including driving quality improvement for frontline, admin and management staff. We also created personalised eLearning to provide district nurses with the relevant knowledge and skills for their continuing professional development (CPD).
- RNIB – Our award-winning eLearning for RNIB helps them extend the reach of their training while still ensuring the highest level of accessibility for people with sight loss.
- SAMH - The eLearning we created for SAMH, helps them introduce leisure staff and volunteers to mental health awareness and CBA. Understanding the fundamentals enables learners to get maximum benefit from subsequent face-to-face workshops.
- Penumbra – There was a need to increase awareness of mental health challenges and make information easily accessible. We were delighted when Penumbra chose eCom to help them with this.
We’ve been supporting organisations on their digital journey for 25 years and we’re proud to be helping many businesses who are embracing technology and in turn having a positive impact on the economy. We are playing out part through the creation of highly skilled jobs and our ongoing commitment to innovation, which helps us make a positive contribution to Scotland.
As well as supporting economic growth and facilitating learning, we also respect and enhance our environment.
In support of the natural environment, the eLearning we created for Netregs, a partnership between the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), helps educate Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) on how they can reduce their environmental impact and comply with environmental regulations. This engaging eLearning covers Duty of Care for Waste, Generating Renewable Energy, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, Sinks, Drains and Sew-ers and Pollution Prevention.
In the built environment, our work with canal college®, the flagship project of with Scottish Waterways Trust (SWT), helped students improve the built, cultural and natural heritage of the waterway. This included landscaping, tree and vegetation management, stonework, conservation, canalside archaeology, trail creation and environment skills.
