The prestigious international awards program named Skillable as its 2023 “Enterprise Learning Solution of the Year”
TAMPA, Fla., – June 27, 2023 – Skillable, the leading technology platform for the creation and delivery of hands-on learning experiences to develop and validate technical and digital skills, has been selected as the “Enterprise Learning Solution of the Year” in the 5th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market. It is the second time that Skillable has been highlighted in the EdTech Breakthrough Awards program, reinforcing the consistent performance of its enterprise technology platform.
Skillable’s hands-on learning solution stretches skills beyond theoretical knowledge with off-the-shelf learning experiences that enable organizations to bridge the gap between skills learned and skills mastered. Skillable Challenges are an off-the-shelf catalog of more than 1,100 scored exercises across a variety of today’s top digital skills and technologies like cybersecurity, cloud technology and programming. Additionally, Skillable offers enterprises the ability to create custom hands-on experiences tailored to each business’s needs and environment, creating the opportunity to validate skills in technology, sales and partner enablement, customer support and more.
Acknowledging the critical need for Skillable’s solution in addressing skills shortages, Chris McCarthy, Chief Executive Officer of Skillable stated, “Within the decade, more than 85 million jobs – to the tune of $8.5 trillion in unrealized annual revenues – could go unfilled because there aren’t enough people with the right skills, and organizations are unable to validate what they do have.”
James Johnson, Managing Director of EdTech Breakthrough, explained why Skillable deserved the award. “Skillable’s main strength is the ability to serve enterprises and their learners across the learning journey. It’s this and the flexibility of their offerings that make them our 2023 ‘Enterprise Learning Solution of the Year.’ The process of hiring, attracting and retaining the right people with the right skills and in the right roles has never been so tough. Experiential, hands-on learning can make all the difference. The power of Skillable’s solutions is in delivering high-touch experiences at scale that are incredibly valuable to learning, talent and recruiting functions.”
