A communications and learning reboot to revolutionise the way associates at Avon connect, learn and share, as the company transforms into a digital-first, social selling, fast-beauty brand.

Fuse Universal Launch

Avon has announced another partnership with Fuse Universal (Fuse) - a leading provider of next-generation learning technology - to create a state of the art global communications and learning platform. This will supersede all of their other training and communication platforms across the globe, and represent the one-stop-shop for associates to connect, learn and share.

The initiative supports a central pillar of Avon’s transformation plan, to digitise its business. The new platform will provide on-demand, bite-sized, interactive learning when needed, so associates can learn quickly and execute quickly. It will in turn enhance the associate experience and simplify ways of working, enabling the company to transform at pace.

The partnership is another element of Avon’s business strategy to ‘Open Up’ the company and unleash the potential of associates and brand.

Becky Wender, Executive Director, Leadership Development and Organisational Effectiveness, says: “Our associates are critical to the success of our business and our transformation journey. Our new platform will help them quickly develop personally and professionally and simplify ways of working across the company. We’re really excited about seeing the benefits that it brings and enabling associates to work, and learn, more closely together.”

Fuse Universal Founder and CEO, Steve Dineen says, 'We are really excited to partner with Avon on their second Fuse platform (Inside Avon) for all associates to complement the Representative version launched in May for the millions of external beauty entrepreneurs. Becky and the team at Avon have a really clear vision for learning and communications and the use of technology as an enabler for it. As well as supporting a digitally focused learning culture, it’s also great to see what the platform can look like with a truly beautifully designed Avon makeover."
