Go1, the world’s largest onboarding, compliance and professional development platform, has announced a partnership with the global leader in corporate learning, Skillsoft.
Under the agreement, more than 300 Skillsoft courses focused on building business and leadership skills will be added to Go1’s marketplace. Skillsoft’s Business & Leadership Skills content is multi-dimensional and micro-sized, which allows for flexible training and development solutions that can be targeted toward the needs of diverse populations. The content is ideal for busy managers both in their role today and as they plan for the next stage of their career – a critical issue facing organizations with growing workforce populations.
Additionally, the new offering will have a strong focus on soft skills. According to a Deloitte Access Economics report, soft skill-intensive occupations will account for two-thirds of all jobs by 2030 compared with half of all jobs in 2000.
New and existing Go1 customers will have access to the Skillsoft content in March 2018 via the Go1 Premium content offering, expanding the section’s content range to more than 1000 Premium courses. The content will be primarily aimed at the Australian and Asia Pacific markets, with plans to roll out in additional countries later in the year.

Deloitte Access Economics said a workforce with a broad mix of skills is “crucial for business success and national prosperity. Businesses with more skilled staff have higher rates of innovation and productivity”.
