Udemy and Betterworks blend Learning and Performance
Betterworks, the leading strategy execution enterprise software company, announced a new approach to employee development by integrating its OKR platform with Udemy for Business, an enterprise learning platform powered by Udemy, the global marketplace for learning and teaching online.
Learning is essential to the employee experience and is a key contributor to employee and enterprise agility. The new product integration allows employees to search, discover, and launch Udemy for Business courses from within the Betterworks interface as well as link learning progress and outcomes to measurable goals. With this new approach, learning becomes a powerful and visible tool for achieving business objectives across organizations.
For example, after setting an objective (OKR) in Betterworks, employees can link their Udemy for Business courses as a key result for advancing the progress of the OKR. Managers gain visibility into an employee’s progress within courses and can track the percentage of completion in real-time with Betterworks. As a result, learning is connected directly to business outcomes, and organizations can foster a culture of openness, alignment, and innovation.
“Adding a learning component to performance management means employees move closer to their career aspirations while honing skills necessary for employers to meet their business objectives,” said George LaRocque, Founder and market analyst from Worktech. “Tying this to OKRs is a smart move that pays dividends to all parties.”
