Phenom + Degreed: Driving Employee Growth and Retention with Personalized Learning | Phenom

August 12, 2022

In a world of technology, employees have practically unlimited options at their fingertips when it comes to learning new skills. Thirty-seven percent of skill requirements for the average job have changed over the past five years, making it imperative for both companies and employees to stay up-to-date on their learning and development in order to stay relevant. 
 

However, retention trends show that corporate culture hasn’t caught up to employee wants and needs when it comes to professional education. According to a Pew Research Center survey, nearly 70% of employees globally “are willing to retrain and learn new skills on the job. Yet many of these workers are leaving their current jobs to pursue advancement elsewhere.” This is due to the lack of learning options companies are making available to their employees. 
 

It's certainly in an organization's best interest to grow with their employees, offer them opportunities to advance their skills and knowledge, and ultimately to promote from within. This leads to increased retention and overall employee satisfaction. The challenge is having the right tools to do so — and knowing how to engage with them.
 

At Phenom, we are constantly upgrading and reevaluating our employee experience to provide the best learning and development options possible. That’s why we are excited to announce our recent partnership and integration with Degreed to help employees grow and evolve in their careers.
