Smyths Toys

Smyths Toys Onboards 2,000 Seasonal Employees A Year with Totara Learn.

Smyths Toys is Europe’s largest toy retailer, with over 200 stores across Ireland, the UK and Europe, employing more than 6,500 employees. They are dedicated to encouraging learning and developing creativity in children and provide a wide range of toys, baby products, outdoor equipment and video games.

As part of the upgrade, Enovation implemented its own responsive custom theme, branded to match Smyths Toys brand guidelines. Enhancements to the new employee registration form allow validation against required fields, minimising mistakes by end-users and making the onboarding more efficient.

The upgraded and enhanced training portal, which is managed by Enovation within the Smyths Toys’ data centre, is now further embedded within the organisation and is a critical business system. The successful partnership with Enovation ensures the solution will continue to serve the eLearning and compliance needs of the organisation as they continue their expansion.
