In order to further enhance real change QuizRR has developed training modules for deeper knowledge on workplace dialogue, wage management, ethical recruitment and involuntary work, as well as a blended learning set up, where we work with face to face and digital training in combination, explains Sofie Nordström, Co-Founder QuizRR.
