SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 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 as a 2016 Top 20 Learning Portal Company by TrainingIndustry.com.

"Degreed was founded with the mission to empower and recognize the next generation of the world's experts, delivering a unique platform for people and companies to discover, share and track the many forms of learning workers encounter throughout the day," said David Blake, CEO and co-founder of Degreed. "We are thrilled that TrainingIndustry.com recognized our ability to meet the rapidly evolving needs of today's learners and given us this honor. Our inclusion as a Top 20 Learning Portal Company highlights the utility of our solution and the innovation we bring to workplace learning."

Through its annual Top 20 Learning Portal Companies list, TrainingIndustry.com monitors the training marketplace to find the best providers of training services and technologies on the market today. Companies are evaluated based on their breadth of functionality and capabilities; commitment to the corporate training market; industry visibility, innovation and impact; number and strength of clients; and geographic reach. Based on these criteria, Degreed was ranked among the top learning solution providers.

Degreed is used by organizations and individuals to discover, track and measure all learning, both formal and informal, wherever it happens. The Degreed platform enables businesses to connect their internal training and talent systems with more than 225,000 courses and millions of other resources (e.g. articles, videos, books, podcasts and more) from nearly 1,400 providers. In doing so, organizations can nurture a culture of continuous, everyday learning, encourage employee self-development, set department and personal learning goals, and help employees expand their skill sets over time. The result is a simplified way for companies to gain a more complete view of all learning that takes place -- not just what is company mandated or in corporate classrooms and systems.

"Finding the right match in a learning technology partner can not only aid in your employees' ability to retain the information shared in the program, but can also significantly improve marketability and engagement," said Ken Taylor, president, Training Industry, Inc. "The companies selected for this year's Top 20 List demonstrate significant innovation in how they track, manage and measure learning programs to ensure their learners get the training they need, when they need it."
