Gamified simulation training provider Attensi has chosen London to open its latest office.
The company, which is led by gaming entrepreneurs Trond Aas and Anne Lise Waal, has posted 54% YoY revenue growth and now plans to grow its UK business further in 2021.
It’s also planning to grow its global workforce from 125 to well over 200 by 2022.
Anne Lise Waal, CTO and co-CEO at Attensi comments: “Typically, the only way large organisations can train their staff is via classroom training, passive videos, or linear e-learning. These are often a tick-box exercise for the learner, and don’t measure someone’s real understanding or give any sense of the impact on the business.
“It is proven that virtual simulations help people master even the most complex of tasks. These techniques have been used by surgeons and fighter pilots for years. Our technology and all its interactive capabilities bring these same simulation principles to all industries and job roles.”
Co-CEO Trond Aas, comments: “London and the UK represents our gateway to the world, it’s full of global companies. So, for us it’s a move into the global market from Norway and our next move will be into the US, where we now have a California base. We are securing many large corporations already in North America from our offices in London and Oslo.”
