We’re thrilled to announce that we have now delivered over 4,000,000 unique training sessions across all of our courses!
As you can imagine, over the time it has taken us to get to this point, iHASCO has changed and grown significantly...
In 2008 iHASCO was known as ‘The Interactive Health & Safety Company’, born out of one product called ‘Fire Safety Training’ and later we developed other Health & Safety courses such as Manual Handling and DSE. We started with just a handful of staff, using CD-ROMs to deliver our courses. Our courses at first focused on health and safety training - hence our name! - and in 2012 we expanded into HR Compliance too. Since then, our library has grown to over 100 eLearning courses suitable for various industries, which is a 2400% increase since 2008! Our name also changed from ‘The Interactive Health & Safety Company’, to ‘iHasco’ and then to iHASCO alongside a complete branding overhaul.
What do some of our senior team think about being part of iHASCO?
Alongside this, our LMS saw many iterations and updates in order to continue to ‘Make Training Simple’ as we endeavoured to ‘Seek Constant Improvement’ - both of which are some of iHASCO’s core values. In fact, while 4,000,000 training sessions is a fantastic achievement, we have to remember that iHASCO actually existed for a year without an LMS to quantify the training sessions clients were taking, so in reality, we have probably completed many more than 4,000,000 training sessions!
We’ve had around 4 website changes in this period too. Here are the most recent 3 including our current site on the right...
Our growth hasn’t just been in the online world. Starting off with only 8 people, we've grown over 11 years into a team that is now 70 people strong - that's a 775% increase! In 2012, we moved to office buildings because our team was outgrowing the building! In 2018 we also bought the upstairs level of the office next door to us because, again, we had grown bigger than our current space!
