Skillsoft Drives Higher Learner Engagement Through Global Compliance Solution Transformation

New compliance content uses brain science research to become more impactful

BOSTON, September 26, 2017 - Skillsoft, the global leader in corporate learning, announced today it is reimagining compliance content with a transformation of its Compliance Solutions portfolio. Using research from brain science and understanding the most critical learning factors, Skillsoft is investing in a modern look and feel, and unique treatment of its compliance content to ensure learners are highly engaged, for optimal performance outcomes.

From brain science research, Skillsoft found that learners need three things for an optimal learning experience: relevance, meaning and emotion. This new content provides a data-driven mix of design approaches that are learner-centric. The design provides memory hooks for the learners by engaging both sides of the brain, fostering a linkage between cognition and emotion. By utilizing world-class writers, animators, actors and presenters, this new multi-modal content creates an engaging, high-definition and highly contextualized experience to change learner behavior and drive business performance.

"In today's very complex and dynamic business environment, compliance is a critical component to drive a successful organization. Our extensive investment in reimagining our compliance library demonstrates our continued commitment to deliver best-in-market content, which engages learners and drives business outcomes," said Bill Donoghue, chairman and CEO of the Skillsoft group. "Our solutions streamline and simplify global compliance training challenges while providing organizations with a portal into a much broader corporate learning tool."

Skillsoft's Compliance Solutions protect over 1,600 organizations with a full suite of compliance training options tailored to each customer's unique requirements and objectives. The solutions offer a library of thousands of courses and videos in 475 critical legal and safety risk topics, and in 32 languages globally. To meet the needs of global organizations, market-leading localized and translated content is available now for immediate use by Skillsoft's customers. The recent release of the new platinum, scenario-based harassment prevention courses demonstrate Skillsoft's commitment to implement a unique design approach throughout all compliance content.

"Many of our partnerships with technology organizations require that certain percentages of members of our organization be certified. The Skillsoft Compliance Solutions training helps us meet obligations and saves a lot of time and money by accessing the content in our Learning Management System (LMS) versus going to classes," said John Heyman, director of Content Development & Delivery at Unisys University. "We're looking forward to continuing this successful program through the use of the new Skillsoft Compliance training."

Skillsoft provides one of the largest selections of Legal and Safety, Health and Environmental compliance topics. The content ensures organizations effectively meet regulatory requirements, mitigate risk, address global audience requirements with language and cultural considerations, and promote awareness around critical risk and safety concerns. Skillsoft's compliance content is grounded in expertise from prestigious law firms and subject matter expert partners.
