Read how Degreed has helped us achieve our goal of becoming a more learner-centered organization where all learning matters.
Centric Consulting was recently featured in a Degreed case study about our partnership with the platform, which allows employees to track daily learning in a way that is simple, convenient, and social.
In the case study, Degreed writes about how we embarked on a journey to create a culture centered on lifelong learning because we “realized learning was one of the best ways to empower our “people to have meaningful, fulfilling careers while also improving the experience” of our clients.
The article talks about how we decided we “wanted technology that could take advantage of existing resources in the world as well as the social aspect of learning, while also providing employees the opportunity to learn anywhere and easily share what they’d learned.” After researching our options, we partnered with Degreed.
“What attracted us to Degreed was the really close match with the strategic elements that we were already envisioning as important to us,” said Kevin Sheppard, Talent Management Lead at Centric.
Since launching just over a year ago, Degreed has become a key part of the learning process at Centric. In a year, they’ve added over 100 Pathways and have experienced first-time collaboration between Centric’s regional locations across the US and India.
Units that have historically operated relatively independently can now utilize the centralized Pathways and content others have created rather than starting from scratch. Duplicate content has been significantly reduced and employees are able to quickly develop their own training materials by working together to develop shared materials that can be used throughout the company.
In addition to contributing to the operational success of their business, Degreed has helped Centric achieve their goal of becoming a more learner-centered organization that enforces their belief that all learning matters. Their hope is to see all of their employees become avid lifelong learners, no matter where they are in their career, and they’re quickly seeing that become a reality.
“This is a tool that matters to employees. Degreed has a way of fitting each mold and there are so many different ways people are utilizing it,” said Heather Bahorich, Learning Manager at Centric.
