If you’re going to disrupt the status quo, you’ve got to be on top of your game.
That was the belief — and reality — that sent learning leaders at PointClickCare in search of new ways for people to drive their own learning. The late-stage Toronto-based startup, which provides cloud-based software for managing skilled nursing, senior living, home health and acute care, was in the midst of a fierce war for workers. To recruit staff and stay competitive, it needed to meet the high professional development expectations of top talent.
Moreover, “we were hearing from our leadership that — to stay on top of technology and innovation — every single person in the company had to be vested in a growth mindset, continuously upskilling and reskilling,” said Cindy Plunkett, Director of Learning Design and Development.
In our latest Degreed case study, we explore how PointClickCare partnered with Degreed to boost recruitment and retention and build skills.
Helping the company stay competitive, people embraced content on a wide range of topics, exploring leadership, communication and project management and technical skills including React, MySQL and Docker and Kubernetes. Importantly, people feel engaged in their development as they own and drive their learning, share recommendations and develop skills for current and future roles
Degreed has helped PointClickCare positively shape its employer brand, Plunkett said. “Part of our value proposition for recruitment that’s now baked in is how much we value and invest in each employee’s growth and development. We are about transparency. Growth is open to everyone.”
By integrating Degreed Experiential Learning with the company’s talent acquisition platform, PointClickCare tackled employee retention, providing people full visibility into internal growth opportunities through a continually updated talent marketplace.

“We needed a mindset that learning is something you’re doing every day in communities of practice whether you’re recognizing it or not,” Plunkett said. “You’re sharing learning and you’re learning. We couldn’t do that with an LMS. We needed to be able to clearly see what our skills were across the organization, allow people to upskill and give leaders line of sight into the skills on their teams.”
