A little about Sibme…
Sibme was founded by teachers who understand learning and know that most employee training doesn’t apply the basic principles of learning design. We were tired of sit and get workshops, irrelevant performance reviews, and outsiders that just told people what to do and left.
That’s why we’ve built Sibme’s software to be people focused and employee powered. We believe training should happen from the ground up, not from the top down.
Sibme’s focus for service, training, consulting, and success teams: empowering you to drive your own success.
So much to learn!
