Introducing Degreed to New Zealand

Capability Group, a NZ headquartered company with additional offices in Singapore and Sydney, is delighted to announce a partnership with workforce upskilling platform Degreed. The partnership will help organisations accelerate skill and career development across the Asia Pacific region, through bringing a new data-driven approach to upskilling.

Capability Group is an organisational development consulting company focused on connecting people and changing lives through learning. Operating at the intersection of behavioural psychology, learning design, and learning technology, Capability Group provides strategic advice and solutions that shift mindsets, drives behaviour change at scale and results in the transformation of organisational cultures.

The team at Capability Group are passionate about creating learning solutions that not only transform individuals, teams, and organisational performance, but also generate a ripple effect, where the capabilities developed by individuals flow through into learner’s families and communities. The positive impacts of the ripple effect can be significant and inspiring.  

Drew McGuire, the CEO of Capability Group explains who the team is and what they do as follows:

“The evidence base underpinning our designs and solutions is hugely important to us. We are avid researchers of behavioural psychology and neuroscience. We have distilled this research into a number of learning design principles which underpin the design of all of our solutions and technology choices.  We have been really careful in our selection of technology solutions to bring to the markets we support. Alignment with client’s strategic imperatives and impact on individual and organisational performance are critical!”

Given this, it’s not surprising that when Capability Group was looking to better support their clients with developing future skills they selected Degreed, the leading workforce upskilling platform.

Degreed was founded with the vision to help people continuously grow their skills and advance their careers. To jailbreak the degree with a single profile where people can track all of their learning and be offered relevant work opportunities based on their skills data. Degreed provides deeper insights into the supply and demand for skills within a business, and unlocks a dynamic and responsive way to drive upskilling, internal mobility and career growth.

The Degreed learning platform connects all the resources people use to learn and grow — including corporate learning and HR systems, courses, videos, books, articles, and podcasts. Data science is used to provide people and businesses with the tools, insights and feedback they need to continuously build and measure the skills they need. Founded in 2012, Degreed is headquartered in San Francisco, with additional offices in Salt Lake City, New York, London, Brisbane, and Amsterdam.

Together, Degreed and Capability Group are on a mission to provide better, smarter, faster ways to develop and measure skills to help organisations better prepare themselves for the future.

Louise Anderson, RVP of ANZ at Degreed, on the partnership said:

“There is a critical need for personalised and data-driven upskilling across the Asia Pacific region, as organisations look to recover and thrive in the coming months. 42% of managers and workers recently surveyed by Degreed feel an urgency to upskill post-COVID, with 62% of workers stating that this concern about a lack of skills is affecting their mental health. Clearly, much has to be done and the partnership between Degreed and Capability Group will help organisations effectively support their workforces and ensure they are building the right skills for the future.”
