Microlearning delivers

results for Rappi

Summoned via smartphone, Rappi's

army of couriers deliver meals, groceries

and clothing, and run errands that

include paying bills and walking dogs.

Felipe Rojas explains how mcrolearning

hits the spot for the millennial workforce.

Interview by Priya Bhandari.

Tell us a little about the company.

Rappi is an on-demand delivery company

with operations in Colombia, Mexico, Brazil

and Argentina. Our customers are busy

people who value their time and don't want to

get stuck in traffic when buying groceries or

collecting their favourite pastries. Our delivery

staff are looking for flexible work where they

millennials and short attention spans!

So, I created a character called 'Felipe de

Rappi' who represents one of our Customer

Service Specialists. His task is to teach
