Degreed, the learning platform relied on by hundreds of global companies to build skills for today and tomorrow, continues to improve access pathways to learning with its latest strategic partnership announcement.
These alliances highlight how Degreed’s open platform enables L&D teams to not only gather content, but also connect skills to business goals.
Building a learner-centered culture
By focusing on the broader employee experience when a learner engages in learning opportunities, Degreed fosters a corporate learning culture that is people-first and driven by the needs and aspirations of the individual. Degreed also achieves this through the best ecosystem of partners who take learning to the next level.
The Degreed learning platform is open to content from anywhere, connecting opportunities from anywhere and connecting content to academies, experiences and people. Through this, the organization and employees have guidance and resources at every stage of their journey, from onboarding to learning, development and improvement, to career progression.
Comprehension guided by skills
Degreed was the first learning platform to incorporate third-party skills data into its system, enabling L&D leaders to extend learning beyond content delivery. Now that’s progressing with Workday integration. As a selected partner in Workday’s Software Alliance program, Degreed and Workday are building a two-way information exchange for skills data that provides a deeper understanding of the supply and demand of workforce skills.
Partnerships with Eightfold and Phenoma provide further ways to connect talent skills and experiences with learning – driving Degreed’s mission to recognize all skills, regardless of how they are acquired. Credly brings digital credentials to the Degreed learning platform, and Filtered supports learning management. These partnerships support the investment Degreed has made in recent years to improve the experience for Degreed users and administrators, as well as expand the content in the Degreed public library that offers easy browsing, searching and tracking.
Degreed is the only leading learning platform with this depth and breadth of instant integration. It enables organizations to rapidly scale their deployment, create a personalized learning experience and inform their learning and workforce strategies with skills data.
