Learnerbly gives employees learning budgets and lets them choose what and how to learn from over 200 different providers

Learners are put in control of their own development, able to spend their learning budget on the books, coaching courses, e-learning and conferences that they care about and match their goals.

What this means is that, unlike many workplace learning libraries, employees actually use Learnerbly – it has an engagement rate of 40-60% compared to industry averages of less than 15%.

this innovative approach has attracted a horde of cutting-edge companies like Snyk, King.com. GoCardless, Curve and HelloFresh

And this innovative approach has attracted a horde of cutting-edge companies like Snyk, King.com. GoCardless, Curve and HelloFresh, and means Learnerbly has a nearly 100% retention rate across its client base of almost 100 companies.

Workplace learning that employees actually use and enjoy? Looks like Learnerbly could teach lots of companies a thing or two about building a successful startup.
