You know we love chocolate here at LE, so it is with great excitement that we announce the addition of Hershey’s as our newest client. The Hershey Company is the largest chocolate manufacturer in North America and is headquartered out of Hershey, Pennsylvania (also home to Hershey’s Chocolate World). Milton S. Hershey founded the company back in 1894, making Hershey one of the oldest chocolate companies in the US.
Hershey’s plans to utilize LE’s Certified Category Management Library, as well as our newest Learning Portal and Performance Support Platform, “ELLI.” There are great things going on here at LE in these exciting times. Be sure to keep an eye out for the latest & greatest and get out in those isles and pick up the iconic Hershey’s Chocolate Bar!
