Curate content, increase adoption, and make impact in employee development through new training avenues

The new world of work is upon us and employee development needs are changing quickly. Learn how a small L&D team in the heart of Silicon Valley re-engineered their training strategy for over 5,000 employees globally to reengage participation and foster connections cross-functionally. Using a small set of Skillsoft online modules to make a big impact, we'll share how we curated content, increased adoption, promoted our innovative offerings, brought employees together both in-person and virtually, and measured success.

Join us as we share real examples of marketing materials, course content, and employee tools – not just the why of what we did, but even more about the how. Attendees will learn: 

  • How to curate content to align to employee development needs
  • Different ways to incorporate Skillsoft modules into corporate training with respect to global considerations
  • About real-life examples of marketing promotions for Skillsoft content
