Ask a Trainer: How Can I Protect My Organization’s Employee Experience Budget?

Table of Contents

In this week’s Ask a Trainer guest post, Peter Brussard offers advice for how HR and L&D teams can connect employee experience programs to business success.

Acquisition of Bridge will expand LTG’s capabilities in the mid-enterprise market.

At Bridge, we love to build great software. Six years ago, we first brought the Bridge Learning Management System (LMS) to market. Since then, our offering has expanded with the addition of performance, engagement, and career development tools enabling companies to deliver a unique, employee-centric experience for development and productivity, all integrated in a single, easy-to-use, SaaS-based platform. Employees thrive when they’re inspired to learn and grow. 

Bridge is the People Matter Most Platform for a reason. Our mission: deliver a learning and performance platform that helps employees and managers transform their organization through connected learning, performance alignment, and career growth. With it, you can put employees first—and chart your organization’s course to greater achievement.

Part of LTG

Today, Bridge enters the next phase of its innovation and growth. Learning Technologies Group plc (LTG), the provider of services and technologies for digital learning and talent management, has agreed to acquire Bridge from Instructure Inc. The acquisition significantly extends LTG’s learning and talent offering in the important mid-enterprise market. The addition of Bridge is highly complementary to the Group’s existing offerings: PeopleFluent, which serves the large enterprise market, and BreezyHR, which serves the small and medium-sized business market. This latest addition enables LTG to provide a holistic learning and talent development offering to meet the needs of small, mid-size, and large enterprises, three distinct groups with varying needs. 

“Leading companies focus on creating an engaging culture that unlocks the potential of each employee. In today’s disruptive work climate, smart companies provide opportunities that facilitate connection, alignment, and growth for their people and teams,” said John Knotwell. “Bridge is proud to be among the most sought after HR solutions for learning and performance management.”

The combination and integration of Bridge with LTG’s other portfolio offerings will create opportunities for cross-sell and upsell-led growth.

“I am delighted to welcome Bridge to LTG. Bridge adds real strength and depth to our learning and talent offering for the mid-enterprise market, which has attractive structural dynamics.”

-Jonathan Satchell, Chief Executive of LTG

The vast majority of our customers have common goals focused on enabling employees to grow, achieve their best potential, and helping them gain the skills they need to succeed. Bridge users enjoy high user adoption because it’s built with the flexibility and ease-of-use needed to meet the diverse needs unique to high growth and medium-sized organizations.

We are excited about this opportunity and what it means for our Bridge customers. Our technology is poised to transform talent management so our customers can transform their businesses.
