Skillsoft Awards 4.5 Million Digital Badges to Learners

Skillsoft, a provider of digital learning, training, and talent solutions to help organizations unleash their edge, has seen a rapid increase in learner engagement and self-led online learning since March 2020, with learners earning an unprecedented 4.5 million digital badges upon the completion of select courses. In February, Skillsoft digital badging capabilities launched to offer a virtual, verifiable representation of skills learned on the Skillsoft Percipio learning platform. The overwhelming success of Skillsoft digital badges reflects an increasing appetite for on-demand skills training, particularly at a time when organizations around the world are facing disruption in the face of a global pandemic. Retaining a modern skill set is critical for team members across organizations. At CGI, one of the largest IT and business consulting services firms in the world, 85 percent of its staff are deployed on client projects at any given time. So, when a number of those jobs were temporarily halted due to COVID-19 and team members were awaiting their next assignment, the Learning and Development (L&D) team launched CGI Academia, a companywide online learning program powered by Skillsoft Percipio. Since the end of April, more than 44,000 of CGI’s 77,500 employees around the world have leveraged CGI Academia, spending 278,865 total hours on the platform, and earning 145,000 digital badges and counting.
