    Degreed Acquires Learn In

    Deal will extend its upskilling offering to include longer-form programs and talent academies

    Degreed, the professional lifelong learning solution chosen by more than one in three Fortune 50 companies, have announced the acquisition of talent academy platform, Learn In. At the same time, co-founder David Blake will return to the company as CEO having previously been the co-founder and CEO of Learn In.

    Learn In helps companies establish internal talent academies that bring together resources with the aim of building a highly skilled workforce. 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 organisations. 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. “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.”
