August 18, 2016


Company Recognized for Its Learner-first Approach to Enterprise Skills Development 

SAN FRANCISCO – August 18, 2016 – Degreed, the fast-growing company that has created an engaging, beautiful and intuitive way to empower and recognize all forms of professional and lifelong learning, today announced that it has been recognized by leading technology-focused research and advisory firm Aragon Research as a 2016 “Hot Vendor in Learning.”


Each year, Aragon Research selects Hot Vendors across multiple markets that have interesting, cutting-edge products, services or technologies. Degreed was featured as a Hot Vendor in Learning for offering advanced learning solutions that make a difference in corporate learning and focus on the continuous, personalized delivery of learning for individual employees and the enterprise as a whole.


“Degreed delivers a new way to help individuals and organizations discover, share and track all forms of learning throughout their careers, not just in their jobs. We are honored that Aragon Research has recognized our innovative solution and named Degreed a 2016 Hot Vendor in Learning,” said David Blake, CEO and co-founder of Degreed. “There are now a multitude of ways people learn. That puts new pressures on employees to juggle both the informal and traditional approaches to build their knowledge and skills. And it challenges HR and corporate learning departments to manage an increasingly complicated array of platforms and vendors.”


Degreed was launched in 2012 with the mission to make all lifelong learning matter by creating a new way to build and measure expertise. The result is a truly unique learning platform that enables organizations to manage ALL of their employees’ learning – both internal and external – while gaining deeper, real-time insights into the interests and skills of their people. The Degreed platform integrates internal learning, talent and HR systems with millions of paid, free and open learning resources available from thousands of learning platforms and providers. As a result, companies can foster a culture of continuous learning, helping employees to expand their skillsets and increase their value to the organization.


According to the report, “What makes Degreed hot is its ability to deliver a wide variety of learning content and quantify all the learning that is occurring within an enterprise. Degreed lets employers see what their employees are currently learning, whether the knowledge is coming from ILT classes, online courses, books, videos, articles, podcasts, or elsewhere.”


Degreed’s inclusion as a Hot Vendor in Learning is the latest achievement for the fast-growing company. In addition to closing a $25 million round of Series B funding, Degreed has recently introduced its first native mobile app, acquired European learning company Gibbon, and expanded its hiring across Asia, Australia, Europe and Canada.
