Schönox distance learning program expands

Florence, Ala.—Attendance at Schönox Social Distance Learning webinars, CEUs and live-cast demonstrations has far exceeded the original goals of the program leading to the expansion of the platform with more topics and scheduled events, the company said.

“When we kicked off Schönox Social Distance Learning, we knew there was an opportunity to share information and bring the flooring community together for a series of training and sharing sessions,” said John Bonney, vice president – sales operations, Schönox HPS North America. “However, we were not prepared for the response we received. We’ve seen webinars with more than ten times the normal number of attendees and follow up requests for additional topics and private sessions tailored for specific professional groups—we couldn’t be more pleased.”

Operating with the unifying theme, Emerge Better, many of the program topics are focused on sharpening the specifying and installation skills of contractors, architects, designers and project owners. Other programs have a more urgent status like that for converting hospitality and office space to hospital uses.

“We are in the subfloor business to delight customers with best-in-class products and service paired with the overarching goal to keep our customers safe with the highest performance in health and ease-of-use categories as well,” said Thomas Trissl, principal, Schönox HPS North America. “Providing distance learning opportunities during this time is consistent with those core goals of operational performance as well as health and safety.”

While the wide range of topics has been well attended, the webinars regarding the conversion of hospitality and office spaces to healthcare use have been particularly well attended. These sessions focused on a series of Schönox products put together in recent weeks for use within a Schönox Rapid Healthcare Facility Conversion Initiative.

“It’s a rare thing to see training sessions being translated so quickly into real-world projects, but that is what has happened with Schönox Social Distance Learning sessions,” explained Doug Young, executive vice president, Schönox HPS North America. “I am excited to see people learning from the sessions and then immediately putting that knowledge to use specifying product solutions and taking on new subfloor projects with greater confidence.”

Schönox Social Distance Learning courses and presentations include: self-leveling techniques, synthetic and hybrid technologies, primer selections, subfloor analysis, moisture mitigation solutions, pumping and pouring benefits, shower installations, industry topics and product systems designed to meet subfloor challenges targeted at segments such as education, multifamily, healthcare and commercial spaces. Most are prescheduled course times, but there are also opportunities for flexible scheduling based on the interests and needs of professional groups and firms. An initial goal to reach 3,000 attendees will be attained and surpassed as soon as programs continue.
