Zugata Partners With Skillshare and The Muse to Help Companies Deliver Personalized Professional Development

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2017) - Zugata, the only company that offers performance management software built for both performance evaluation and development, today announced partnerships with Skillshare and The Muse so companies can deliver additional personalized development resources to employees to help them advance their skills. Zugata will be showcasing these in its booth #3935 at the HR Technology Conference next week.

"Performance management should not only evaluate performance but also improve it through continuous employee development. Our newest integrations with The Muse and Skillshare are exciting additions to an employee's personalized development resource library, helping them continuously grow and improve through courses and career coaching. This is how companies can leverage performance management to create high-performance cultures, impacting employee engagement, productivity and the company's bottom line," said Srinivas Krishnamurti, co-founder and CEO of Zugata.

More than 1,300 organizations worldwide have signed up to use Zugata's software to bridge performance management and learning and development in order to create high-performance cultures. Zugata's algorithm requests and interprets feedback from key colleagues to give employees insightful dashboards with a comprehensive understanding of their strengths, areas to improve and a clear picture of their progress. With this information, Zugata recommends personalized learning paths for each employee. Resources include instructional videos, articles and mentors.

Zugata customers can access additional resources through new partnerships with Skillshare and The Muse. With the partnership with Skillshare, Zugata now delivers targeted and personalized Skillshare course recommendations to employees based on feedback and performance data. Employees have access to a curated list of online courses from leading practitioners and are also able to create projects, join discussions and learn from other students.

"We're excited to be partnering with Zugata to bring Skillshare's class content to their community of employees and organizations. In this age of rapid technological advancement, it's harder than ever to keep pace in any industry and we believe that offering personalized paths for people to build their skillsets and stay competitive will help people find professional success on their own terms," said Scott Sullivan, Partnerships Director at Skillshare.
