OpenSesame Plus gives companies complete access to in-demand courses and flexible pricing

We were looking for a content provider with a wide variety of business courses, on-demand training, and a program that was both affordable and user-friendly. OpenSesame Plus has exceeded our expectations.

Building and developing talent from within is critical for organizations. Thirty-six percent of employers face difficulties filling jobs, which has a significant impact on their ability to meet client needs, stay competitive and maintain productivity. Almost half of employers who are addressing these talent shortages are doing so through alternative people practices, like implementing training and development for existing staff. This trend will accelerate as Baby Boomers continue to retire in larger numbers and are replaced by Millennials who expect on-the-job training.

To address the growing challenges encountered by organizations filling their internal skills gap, OpenSesame, the world’s leading source of online training, announces OpenSesame Plus. This new method of purchasing elearning provides employees of subscribing organizations access to a curated offering of more than 3,000 courses from top content providers in business skills, compliance topics like sexual harassment, IT, and software development.

“We were looking for a content provider with a wide variety of business courses, on-demand training, and a program that was both affordable and user-friendly. OpenSesame Plus has exceeded our expectations, and we’re already considering additional courses in their marketplace to include for our employees” said Vicki Shrewsbury, Regional Human Resources Manager with Pelican Products, Inc. “We also appreciate the marketing tools we receive from OpenSesame that help us promote our programs and the courses to employees.”

This simple subscription program is a first of its kind to solve many of the pain-points in current training programs. OpenSesame Plus gives companies the flexibility to provide high-quality training options for employees without worrying about the cost per course.

“Employers are facing increased challenges to train people efficiently and in ways that actually have impact on the business. With their best of breed content model that curates the courses most in demand, OpenSesame Plus is ideal for large companies that have diverse training needs, as well as smaller companies in need of an inexpensive way to provide training to employees”, said Pascal Debordes, Global Director of Channels & Alliances, Cegos Group.

Companies can sign up for OpenSesame Plus on an annual basis or monthly, with the option to cancel at anytime. Employees receive access to either specific courses or the entire catalog as determined by the company administrator.

“Given the competitive nature of business, companies that provide their employees unfettered access to online learning can create a competitive advantage,” said Don Spear, CEO at OpenSesame. “OpenSesame Plus was specifically designed with engaging, quality courses to support the growing need to build and develop talent within the organization.”
