NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Traliant, a leading provider of online compliance training solutions, announced that it has acquired Kantola Training Solutions, an eLearning leader trusted by over 15,000 organizations. Kantola focuses on harassment prevention and diversity, equity, and inclusion training solutions that help to change perspectives, achieve compliance, and elevate culture.
The acquisition underscores Traliant's commitment to improving workplaces through modern compliance training fueled by continuous innovation and growth. Kantola's engaging, innovative and easy-to-use training solutions further strengthen Traliant's portfolio of online compliance training courses.
This latest milestone extends Traliant's growth trajectory, following the acquisition of Clear Law Institute in June 2023 and an investment announced in January 2021 from PSG, a leading growth equity firm partnering with software and technology-enabled services companies to help accelerate their growth.
"With workplace harassment guidance and policies constantly evolving and DEI issues making headlines, employers need effective, comprehensive training they can trust now more than ever," said Mike Dahir, CEO of Traliant. "Kantola shares our commitment to providing customers with training solutions they can trust to engage and educate employees in support of a work environment where everyone feels included, respected, and safe. Together, we will continue striving to make workplaces better for all."
"By joining forces with Traliant, we will expand the reach of our courses to bring about lasting, meaningful change within organizations," said Sarah Rowell, CEO of Kantola. "We believe the talent of our combined teams is poised to deliver industry-leading solutions that continue to redefine what compliance training looks like."
"With this acquisition, PSG has the opportunity to partner with another high-growth, leading provider of online compliance training solutions," said Chris Andrews, Principal at PSG and member of Traliant's Board of Directors. "We believe Kantola's portfolio of harassment prevention and DEI training solutions will build on Traliant's existing portfolio of courses to better meet the needs of both companies' customers."
Vista Point Advisors, a San Francisco-based boutique investment bank, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Kantola.
