Solution: EdCast Learning Experience Platform
EdCast offered an intuitive learning platform which was available anytime and anywhere to their employees as per their needs. Enphase employees got the opportunity to develop relevant skills needed to achieve their professional development and career goals. EdCast LXP was integrated with other learning portals like edX, Khan Academy, Safari Books, etc. in order to bring the best learning content to their employees.
Enphase had limited internal content available during the implementation; that’s when the AI-driven content recommendation engine of EdCast helped their employees with relevant learning content based on their interests and learning aspirations. EdCast LXP’s content recommendation engine was a good start and allowed time for Enphase’s L&D team to add internally developed and curated content on the platform. Key focus areas for LXP deployment at Enphase include:
New employee onboarding: EdCast LXP helped in New Employee Onboarding by building awareness about the company and its products for a smooth transition to their roles. The objective was to make new employees productive within 45 days of joining. The program included topics like:
- Company and Enphase product awareness
- Overview of key business units
- Location specific employee handbook
- Culture playbook, values orientation etc.
Product knowledge for customer support: EdCast LXP was able to enhance the product knowledge of Level 1 and Level 2 support associates. EdCast LXP enabled the support associates through recurring knowledge and learning to close support tickets efficiently and quickly. Enphase offered the below courses on its LXP to empower associates:
- On-the-job training of Enphase products
- Soft skills development
- Product and process training
Enphase product champion: EdCast LXP helped Enphase in capturing tacit knowledge of Enphase experts and converting it into an explicit knowledge base, which can be shared with other associates within the organisation. The objective was to create/identify “Enphase Product Champions,” i.e. subject matter experts within Enphase.
The impact of Cornerstone’s LXP
Enphase was able to drive employee engagement and create learner-centric culture through AI-Powered personalised learning content recommendations for employees. This resulted in:
Better employee onboarding: The platform helped Enphase to launch a blended orientation model thereby helping them to deliver a world-class new employee onboarding experience. The new Employee Onboarding Journey was a great way to induct employees into the Enphase culture. Pathways and courses were offered for before, during and after onboarding to get new employees ramped up and build the habit of continuous learning in the flow of work.
Seamless content curation: Managers started using the LXP platform to curate learning content based on the individual goals of their direct reports and team. This enabled employees to take immediate action on their development plan and show progress by engaging with learning content.
Enhanced adoption: Enphase executives helped in increasing adoption by offering their support and communicating about LXP to their teams and encouraging them to use it widely. Business Units within Enphase began partnering with the L&D team to design and create Functional Academies to engage more employees on the platform with the most in-demand content.

Rising costs and high inflation have tightened consumer spending as of late, thus creating challenges for retailers as they rely on a strong macroeconomic environment and healthy levels of disposable income to drive sales growth. While a large portion of purchases are made online, studies show that consumers still prefer to buy things in-person, creating a synergy between digital and in-person shopping and the need for an omnichannel strategy and hybrid model. Changing social trends have also adjusted customer expectations, so retail organizations need to be agile and able to train their employees quickly and at scale.
