Skillsoft, a platform for transformative learning experiences, announced it has entered into a content partnership with GoodHabitz, a provider of online skills training and professional development based in the Netherlands. Skillsoft and GoodHabitz will offer clients and learners a more comprehensive content library to support well-being in the workplace, and a broad range of skills, including personal productivity, leadership development, and communication.
Why is the partnership a timely offering?
A survey by the McKinsey Health Institute found that 1 in 4 employees are experiencing symptoms of burnout, and that figure is even higher for Asia (including Australia) – nearing one in three. It also revealed over a quarter reporting symptoms of depression and anxiety.
As a result, partnering with GoodHabitz, Skillsoft will offer access to courses like Bye-Bye Burnout, Mind Your Brain, Oh Yes It’s Stress, The Power of Sleep, and Zest for Life, to empower learners to prioritise their mental health, well-being, and personal development.
“Research shows that only 34% of employees say their company’s leadership speaks openly about mental health, and only 3 in 5 employees agree that their manager cares about their emotional well-being. This calls for organisations to do more to support their employees’ health and mental well-being,” said Rashim Mogha, GM of Leadership & Business, Skillsoft.
“To deliver on their key strategic initiatives, organisations must ensure their employees can perform at their top potential. The relationship between work and wellness can no longer be fragmented. Adding GoodHabitz to our portfolio of content partners enables our customers to provide on-demand solutions to their employees to manage stress, be resilient, and leverage the skills developed using this content to flourish at work,” Rashim Mogha added.
What does this mean for Skillsoft and GoodHabitz?
This partnership is in line with Skillsoft’s core mission of propelling firms and people to grow together by delivering transformative learning experiences and making learning convenient and widely accessible. With its open platform strategy and architecture, Skillsoft integrates partners’ content to enable firms to have the flexibility they need to achieve their goals.
“Skillsoft and GoodHabitz share a similar mission in that we are both dedicated to making learning an intrinsic part of the daily work routine. The key lies in providing a comprehensive library of content that incorporates a wide variety of courses delivered in a manner that is both fun and engaging,” said Sander Kok, COO & Head of GoodHabitz Studios, GoodHabitz.
“Additionally, with over 25 learning methods, we’re able to offer personalised training that best fits and empowers each individual’s personal and professional development goals. We’re excited to bring our best-in-class leadership and wellness content to Skillsoft and are confident this will help firms build the next generation of leaders and a healthier workforce.”
All GoodHabitz content is localised, not just translated, giving clients truly adapted content for their specific culture. Learners will be able to access the courses in over 15 languages including French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Danish, Swedish, Dutch, Polish, and German.
