ALISO VIEJO, Calif. and BOSTON
August 22, 2018Carrington Mortgage Holdings, a leading participant in almost every aspect of single family real estate transactions, today disclosed the success of its ongoing investment in learning and professional development opportunities for its 4,000 employees. Carrington, which sources a vast array of multimodal content from Skillsoft, the global leader in corporate learning, has achieved a Return on Investment (ROI) measure of 28:1 on its corporate learning program as every dollar invested in Skillsoft has returned $28 in program benefits and value.

While Carrington provides employees with a robust offering of compliance training modules via Skillsoft, an internal survey highlighted a demand for additional learning opportunities. Carrington sought Skillsoft’s expertise to identify preferred learning content and guide Carrington in the selection of relevant coursework to meet employee requests and learning interests. With Skillsoft’s guidance, Carrington dramatically expanded its catalog of learning assets offered in its Carrington University learning platform to include topics that align with both the organization’s mission and industry trends. To enhance the professional development of its associates, Skillsoft populated six categories featured on Carrington University’s new homepage with relevant, curated learning assets from its Business Skills, Leadership, Productivity & Collaboration and Compliance content collections.

The new and improved Carrington University has successfully attracted and engaged associates with Skillsoft’s easy to access content and topics closely aligned with specific business needs and learners’ interests. In its first year, the program added more than 2,700 pieces of content for Carrington associates to leverage and saw unique users increase by 322 percent while courseware hours completed grew by 214 percent. Carrington calculated its impressive ROI of Skillsoft’s learning content and the total value of skills gained by measuring the cost of classroom and book alternatives as well as the value of employee time saved.

“Carrington’s total return on investment after implementing Skillsoft’s content has reached 28:1. That’s a phenomenal increase in the value of our learning and talent development program to the company and our associates,” stated Tim Wing, Training and Development Analyst, Carrington Mortgage Holdings. “The quality of Skillsoft’s content has been instrumental in attracting associates to Carrington University, transforming its perception as a compliance training platform to a valuable hub for comprehensive, relevant learning materials with lessons they can immediately apply on the job.”

“By gaining on-demand access to a large selection of training across many topics, Carrington associates are maximizing their learning and professional development, having a tangible impact on Carrington’s business,” said Mark Onisk, Chief Content Officer, Skillsoft. “With more than 500,000 multi-modal courses, videos, authoritative content chapters and micro-learning modules, Skillsoft’s unmatched depth and breadth of content enables today’s workforce to develop the skills necessary to succeed in their careers.”
