After a long period of remote work for many employees across the world at the onset of the pandemic, many businesses have begun outlining their ‘return to the office’ plans, which has ushered in what NPR is calling the ‘Great Resignation’, as more workers in the U.S. are quitting their jobs than at any time in at least two decades. According to a LinkedIn report, 94% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers. The acquisition and combined products and services of Valamis and TWM will provide an opportunity for employers to reduce the high cost of employee turnover and labour shortages by upskilling their employees and improving career mobility.

“At TWM our accounts managers are all former heads of L&D, we understand first-hand many of the challenges that our customers are facing. That helps us develop our software in line with those requirements but also gives us an understanding of the partnership that is required to address the rapidly changing needs of businesses. Valamis has a similar approach and company culture that will empower businesses across the U.K. and globally to build greater employee loyalty and, in the end – stronger businesses”, said Phil Purver, CEO, TWM.
