Skills and Content Are Our Best Assets. (And Yours, Too.)

We’ve been pushing skill development hard for the last several years because as a company, we’ve seen that traditional learning and development tools don’t actually translate to useful skills.

But a workforce that can adapt and evolve their skill sets is exactly what companies desperately need to stay current throughout these constant technological advancements. 

That’s why we’ve developed a world-class, award-winning learning and upskilling platform that empowers workers to take learning into their own hands and actually upskill themselves.

Our goal has always been to offer something different in learning platforms and we couldn’t be more proud of the people who continually use and help build it.

Degreed Named a Leader For Learning and Skill Development

The 2019 report from Aragon Research Globe™ for Corporate Learning just announced Degreed as a leader for corporate workplace learning platforms. This report examines 18 major learning providers and ranks them based on “great learning experiences, deliver[ing] knowledge, just-in-time learning, and compliance-related training.” 

“We are honored to be recognized by Aragon Research for providing an outstanding platform that allows today’s workforce to develop skills that will empower them against tomorrow’s challenges,” said Chris McCarthy, Degreed CEO. “This organization is one of the best analysts in the L&D field. We’re proud to be recognized by the best, for being the best.”

Degreed is announced as a winner of corporate workplace learning platforms.

If Your Company’s Workforce Skills Aren’t Evolving, Then It’s Primed for Failure

The Aragon Research Globe™ for Corporate Learning 2019 report states that “learning is a growing focus for businesses and providing just-in-time learning is one of the biggest challenges companies are facing.” Our own research on How the Workforce Learns shows that c-suite executives are recognizing that skill development is critical to growth. 

According to the report, “trends, issues, and challenges that affect business today can and will change tomorrow, and associates need access to tools that enable troubleshooting and performance improvement.” The key to future-proofing your company against upcoming challenges is to implement a learning platform that provides a modern user experience and just-in-time learning.

Degreed is an advocate and innovator of such a modern learning offering. Our platform motivates employees to seek out relevant resources, tap into content shared by managers or team members, and use that information to develop skills. Workers are motivated to become experts in their fields; to receive training and information they need, in whatever scrappy way calls to them; to achieve that next promotion, solve that engineering problem, or better their management style.

We’re grateful for the recognition and remain committed to solving the problems of the future through skills.
