Share

Learn In helps companies establish internal talent academies that bring together all the resources needed for building a highly skilled workforce, including the longer journey of developing deep skills. Learn In’s core features supplement those of the category-defining Degreed LXP (Learning Experience Platform), including a prepaid learning stipend card, a world-class skills marketplace and custom program builder, a tuition benefits manager, and dedicated coaching.

“A corporate capability academy goes beyond ‘a library of content,’” said global industry analyst and CEO of the Josh Bersin Company, Josh Bersin. “It’s a place people go to advance their job-related capabilities. It goes beyond technical and functional skills and focuses on the real business capabilities a company needs to thrive.”

Degreed plus Learn In will unify the broader range of development options people use, spanning daily learning to long-term upskilling for individual career growth and innovation within organizations.

Blake’s plans for the future of Degreed were divergent with the current direction, so an amicable decision was made that he return to the company as CEO and execute that vision.

Degreed thanks Dan Levin for the progress he has driven and his stewardship of the Degreed mission over the past 15 months, and is grateful for his accomplishments, including increasing our client base, establishing operational rigor for scale, and significantly expanding our partner ecosystem and overall global footprint.

“Businesses that can quickly build effective talent are the ones that will be able to deliver on strategic business goals,” said David Blake, Co-founder and CEO of Degreed. “Just as Degreed created the LXP market, Learn In has begun for talent academies. Now together, we have the product and technology to help our customers deliver business capabilities at scale with continued innovation in the learning and skills space.”

“At BMO, our strategy is to build a digitally-enabled bank that’s ready for the future. This means we need to equip employees with the skills they need for their job, their career, for the future of work, and as they follow their personal passions,” says Gina Jeneroux, Chief Learning Officer at BMO Financial Group. “As Degreed and Learn In come together, it will offer a more integrated opportunity for organizations like ours to engage employees and build a broader range of skills—from curious, ‘in-the-moment’ learning through to deeper reskilling and credentials.”

This is the fourth acquisition for Degreed, and Blake re-joins a seasoned Degreed leadership team from Bank of America, Mastercard, Danone, LinkedIn, Adobe, SAP and Saba.

Suzano outlines ESG milestone achievements and commitments at second annual ESG call24.6.2022 16:14:00 CEST | Press release

Suzano, the world’s largest hardwood pulp producer, today held its second annual ESG Call centered around its ambition to be a ‘regenerative company for a regenerative society’. Today’s ESG Call spotlighted measurable progress and ambitions across three core areas of action: climate change, biodiversity and social development. On Climate Change, the ACT initiative of the French Government and CDP scored Suzano ahead of its pulp and paper industry peers in virtually every metric. In 2021, Suzano brought forward its target for removing 40 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere from 2030 to 2025 which is being achieved through improvements to its industrial processes, such as systematically replacing the use of fossil fuels at its industrial plants with biomass, and through conversion of degraded land. As part of the company’s social commitments, Suzano launched a target in 2020 to lift 200,000 people out of poverty. This is more than pertinent, given that in Brazil, 10% of th
