Centric Consulting Joins Vibrant Group of Innovators Dedicated to Creating More Meaningful Learning Experiences for Employees
DAYTON, OH – June 20, 2017 – Degreed, the fast-growing company that has created an engaging, beautiful and intuitive way to empower and recognize all forms of professional and lifelong learning, today announced Centric Consulting has joined the ranks of learning innovators using Degreed.
“In order to remain competitive, employers need to provide engaging and interesting opportunities for their employees to learn and grow at work,” said Heather Bahorich, Learning Manager at Centric. “We believe that all learning matters and it happens throughout the course of our lives, not just in a classroom. We’re excited to partner with Degreed to give our team another outlet to become lifelong learners.”
The partnership between Degreed and Centric allows employees to track daily learning in a way that is simple, convenient, and social. Employees are able to easily share knowledge and connect on common learning interests using learning pathways, article recommendations or the company’s sponsored book club. Employees are also able to recognize when learning happens by using the platform to save and review what they’ve learned.
“Today’s workers are learning every day, in a variety of ways, on and offline. In fact, more than 70 percent of workers we’ve surveyed say they learned something useful for their job from an article, a video or a book in the last 24 hours,” said David Blake, CEO and co-founder of Degreed. “Clients like Centric Consulting show us we’re providing a valuable service to learners, and enable us to continue to introduce innovative learning technology solutions that inspire lifelong learning and result in the transformation of organizations’ learning and development programs.”
Since its founding in 2012, Degreed has enabled individuals and organizations to find, track and recognize all their learning. Developed with the understanding that there is no single path to expertise, the Degreed platform enables users to set personal learning goals and expand their skill sets in their areas of interest. It also enables businesses to create learning objectives and pathways for their teams, while building a culture of consistent and continuous learning.
“At Centric Consulting, our employees already have a strong sense of daily learning habits,” Bahorich added. “With Degreed, they are able to take the learning that happens socially and informally and acknowledge their progress even more. Growing and developing new skills is good for our clients and our people!”
Degreed is an award-winning learning platform built for the way today’s workers really build their expertise and grow their careers. Degreed integrates organizations’ internal talent systems with the world’s largest ecosystem of open learning resources – over 3 million courses, videos, articles, books, podcasts and more from nearly 1,400 sources. As a result, organizations and their people can discover, share and track all their development, however and wherever they learn. Founded in 2012, Degreed is headquartered in San Francisco with additional offices in Salt Lake City and Amsterdam.
