Getting to Know Sollah Interactive
by The Sollah Staff
What’s in a name?
For us, Sollah is more than just a name. It’s a driving force. It’s the reason why we do what we do. Sollah is a derivative of the Hebrew word “selah.” It can’t be directly translated into English, but the typical meaning is “to lift up.” It’s a wonderful concept, isn’t it? Together we can lift each other up by creating a better and more understanding workplace. That’s the Sollah Difference. Our content can lift up an organization by equipping their teams with the tools and knowledge they need to fight things like bias and discrimination in the workforce and empower the individual to learn and grow, but it wasn’t always like this.
Things have changed since 2011.
Back in those early years, DVDs were the main mode of training distribution. You know the ones with the bland, under-produced corporate script with the shoddy voiceover and horrendous acting. Eventually, everything moved to distribution over the internet. You’d think the quality of acting would have improved with advancements in technology, but no. Sadly, no. Thanks to digital technology and equipment, it’s much easier to produce a simple video and get it up on a website. The real trick is getting someone to watch the whole thing without their eyes glossing over. That’s where Sollah entered the conversation.
They needed a change.
In 2011, Bob and Jon launched Sollah. With their combined 52 years of employee development experience and training know-how, they forged a new approach to enhance the training experience. They asked the important questions. What do training videos and interactive eLearning really need to do for an organization? How can we make training videos more immersive and interesting? What kinds of topics need to be addressed in the ever-changing workplace environment? How do we assist organizations in making their team members more inclusive and compliant? But most importantly of all, how can Sollah do all this for companies both small and large?
Using an agile production and development process, they produce high quality and entertaining training content in half the time. Internet distribution, streaming, video downloads and eLearning course ware get Sollah’s content out to anyone, anywhere, any time, and in just about any language. Since their launch, Sollah has continued to grow alongside technology. Thanks to Sollah’s in-house video production studio, content can be tailored for any customer in any industry. They work alongside their customers to develop a learning roadmap that best empowers their workforce. Their customers understand the strength of a customized learning path that allows flexibility with HR and talent management in a diversifying world. Get the training content and videos your company needs and don’t settle for anything less.
On a mission to help any organization dealing with the woes of a modern era.
The workforce is growing and diversifying by the day. More and more people are entering the workforce from all walks of life bringing friction and conflict into the workplace environment: racism, harassment, discrimination, bias, etc. The list goes on and it can get overwhelming. Fortunately, Sollah is here to help.
Sollah’s library of content ranges over many subject matters and situations. Unlike the tedious and boring training videos of yesteryear, Sollah’s videos and eLearning courses are well planned and focus on dealing with current events happening in real workspaces to real people. When you throw a group of people together, they might not always see eye to eye or even know they have an implicit bias. Rather than have them sit through another PowerPoint® with ten bullet points a slide, they could have a positive and informative experience with a customized Sollah adventure.
Using award winning DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging) content, Sollah has helped many customers find the right program path for them and their employees. At Sollah, we believe in our content. Our videos talk about the real world. Each scenario is well acted and covers situations that happen at real workplaces to real people. We strive to make our content understandable, relatable, and accessible to any team member. Come and experience the Sollah difference for yourself.
Everyone is a combination of the many things different aspects of our lives.
Diversity is a fact of life. So, the question is, "how can we use our awareness of diversity to be more effective?"
