Our work with GSK

GSK VaxSim
business simulation.

GSK wanted to address the need for employees to understand how decision-making in one part of the business impacts another. The company wanted its people to feel informed and excited about their role in one of the largest vaccines businesses in the world.

We created VaxSim, an immersive simulation that blends digital learning with a face-to-face experience. The multi-player game was crafted using interviews from internal experts across GSK Vaccines, which were reworked into a fictional world scenario. This meant that decisions were feasible and true to life, whilst also allowing us creative licence to place unexpected events in the game play to boost decision-making moments.


learner happiness!

We’ve had teams from Singapore, Belgium and the UK all competing in the same simulation game at the same time. 

It works really well for a global workforce like ours.
