With BetterUp, Degreed Can Now Deliver Cross-Platform Personalized Coaching for Members Worldwide
Austin, TX – January 24, 2024 – BetterUp®, the global leader in transformative coaching and inventor of virtual coaching, today announced a partnership with Degreed, the leading technology suite for lifelong learning and data-driven development. The partnership combines resources from both BetterUp and the Degreed Learning Experience Platform (LXP) to more effectively deploy coaching and meaningful learning opportunities for customers who currently use both platforms. Degreed customers can find BetterUp on the list of preferred partners which currently houses hundreds of thousands of learning pathways for companies to access for their employees. This is BetterUp’s first integration with a LXP and it will be the first-ever coaching resource available on Degreed.
Starting today, the integration will facilitate a cross-platform leadership development resource. The BetterUp pathway is discoverable in Degreed, where employees already turn for meaningful learning and development. This partnership will centralize actions for members by integrating the BetterUp Coaching Path and track employee progress for customers to better understand real-time skill development. Getting Degreed configured with BetterUp takes less than an hour and is secure through SSO authorization.
“BetterUp and Degreed are committed to delivering scalable workforce development and transformation opportunities,” said Erik Darby, Vice President of Business Development at BetterUp. “Through this partnership, we seamlessly integrate coaching into the flow of work of thousands of Degreed customers, empowering organizations to enhance the personal growth and development of their workforce with personalized 1:1 BetterUp coaching.”
