 Learning at the point of action


To support Oakman Inns in their recruitment journey, focusing on attracting people who would carry the positive mindset values that distinguish their business culture.

Additionally, to support their in-house learning and development approach, empowering existing employees in their workflow-based learning journeys.


How We’ve Supported


Attracting the right talent is not easy.

When filling job openings just putting vacancy ads out there is not enough. Business values need to be strongly communicated and screening processes adapted to reflect company culture and beliefs.

We created:

  • A recruitment and continuous development app, called Oakipedia.
  • A library of resources aimed at supporting new employees in their learning journey and career progression with Oakman Inns.

Oakipedia helped potential recruits in learning about the company and its values. Empowering potential candidates in their career choices.

Once onboarded, new employees could access a vast collection of operational knowledge and resources through the same app.



Oakipedia was made available across all of Oakman Inn’s sites via personal phones and in-house iPads, ensuring access for everyone, no matter their position within the company.

This inclusive approach provided applicants and new starters with a useful and accessible knowledge bank that empowers them in their career journeys.

Oakman Inns is committed to supporting its people to do their best work and ranked for a fifth year in the top 30 of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2020.
