As you know by now, SkillSoft has acquired Element K.
We are extremely excited about the acquisition and are looking forward to working with you. We believe that you will experience a number of important benefits as a result of this acquisition. More and more, organizations recognize that continuous learning and talent optimization is crucial to their success. The ability to attract, retain and grow talent is central to building and sustaining competitive advantage. Learning IS a vital contributor to this business imperative. In addition, advances in technology, rich media and online learning techniques -- including social collaboration and mobility – introduce new opportunities for developing a workforce that is prepared to take on the challenges of today’s 24/7 economy. To meet these challenges you need a learning partner that can address the full spectrum of your needs and be a trusted guide for helping you implement the tools, content and best practices that are just right for your organization. We’re confident that by combining Element K and SkillSoft we’ve created that partner.
We understand that this development raises questions. We want to hear them. We’ll answer them as quickly and as best we can. We will be reaching out to each of you to get to know you and your needs better. We encourage you to do the same. In my letter to you we provided an overview of some of our plans regarding integration of our offerings. That work is already underway and we’re excited about what we see on the horizon in terms of offerings that will benefit everyone.
If there is anything this business of learning has taught us, it is that continuous innovation is at the heart of it and we should embrace it. Change can open our minds to new ideas, new perspectives, new opportunities and even new friendships. Please visit SkillSoft’s Learning Re:Imagined blog and follow us on Twitter to get to know us a little better and for up to date information about our products and solutions. This is a new opportunity for us all and we look forward to taking this journey together with you.
