New York, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2016
Pearson today announced a partnership with Knoitall, a next generation learning platform that enables employers to provide employees with access to learning opportunities that help them acquire the skills they need to succeed. Through the partnership, Pearson will support organizations in the financial services, high-tech, healthcare, retail, hospitality and other sectors to educate and develop their workforces by providing employees with access to high-quality digital learning content from Pearson, organizations’ original training and development materials, and third party resources. Pearson will also provide consulting services to help organizations design, implement and curate content for inclusion in the learning platform.
“Our innovative partnership with Knoitall will enable employers to better engage their staff by managing all forms of professional training and development content from a single interface, empowering workers to easily find and access the learning content they want,” said Kenna Ose, vice president of business development for Pearson. “Employers will also have the capabilities to strategically manage learning and educational assistance spending such as tuition reimbursement. This will be accomplished by providing employees with a unified view of educational opportunities aligned to the most important skills and knowledge needs, which will help to improve employee productivity, talent management pipelines, and business results.”
“As a result of this strategic partnership with Pearson, companies can now engage and educate their employees in new and compelling ways,” said Jeff Creighton, CEO of Knoitall.
A workshop, “Leveraging Innovation: Open-Source Learning in the Modern Workplace” will be presented at the Chief Learning Officer Symposium on April 6th at 8:00 a.m. in Amelia Island, Florida. Attendees will learn how they can use this cost-effective approach to harness innovation in education and learning, and develop skills in a rapidly changing world.
