UNLEASH Chooses Bridge for Enhanced Employee Development


Bridge to help global Future of Work and HR technology event organiser support the potential of its people

London, UK – 22nd October 2018 – Bridge today announced that UNLEASH Group, the fastest-growing international community on the Future of Work and the organiser of this week’s UNLEASH World Conference & Expo in Amsterdam, the world’s largest gathering of HR leaders, has chosen Bridge Perform and Learn to enable more effective learning and development for its employees.

UNLEASH helps big brands, start-ups and next-gen innovators change the way they work, and this partnership sees the organisation lead by example by choosing one of the most innovative employee development solutions available. Bridge helps organisations better develop employees by providing them with the tools they need to grow in their jobs; mastering critical skills and learning from managers and mentors. All of which helps organisations attract, develop, and retain the best talent.

“Technology can play a powerful role in making employee development more valuable, continuous and measurable,” said Kenny Nicholl, General Manager, EMEA at Instructure. “But too many organisations have been burned by cumbersome and unintuitive software in the HR space. Bridge is a powerful employee-centric solution that is easy to use and which delivers actionable insights for HR leaders. UNLEASH, who joins the likes of Tesla, Slack and Dell EMC in choosing Bridge, will benefit from engaged employees who can see that their learning and development is a business priority.”

“After a thorough evaluation of different product solutions to help us manage performance, we’ve selected Bridge Perform and Learn as the main tool to support our employee’s learning, training and performance management,” said Elena Markina, Chief People Officer, UNLEASH. “As a leader in events and a community driving the conversation on how the Future of Work is evolving, UNLEASH is always looking for innovative products and services to showcase at our events, so business and people leaders can support their talent and help their businesses grow.”

This news follows recent research by Bridge that shows how many organisations don’t prioritise employee development, have not implemented digital learning strategies, and have either inadequate or inconsistent review processes. The research found that while most employees are hungry to learn, three quarters (75 percent) of HR staff report that their organisations don’t yet have a learning culture. In order to foster a more engaged, loyal and productive workforce, organisations now need to provide more effective and measurable employee development.

This, and more, will be discussed at UNLEASH World Conference & Expo as it returns to the RAI in Amsterdam this 23-24 October. Bringing together an influential community on the Future of Work and HR Tech, more than 5000 HR professionals will attend from the leading technology providers, enterprises, start-ups and influencers from around the world.
