Learning Pool named in Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024 list


Learning Pool, the leading learning technology company, has officially been named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024 by Great Place To Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.

Over the past 12 months, Learning Pool has implemented various new initiatives to reinforce its commitment to team development, including the launch of Skills Builder, an internal tool designed to identify current skill sets of its people and prepare them for future needs. This initiative facilitates business transformation in today’s dynamic work environment.

“Our relentless focus on cultivating a culture of continuous learning and development lies at the heart of Learning Pool. We believe that investing in our people’s growth not only benefits them individually but also drives our organization’s success in the long run.

This recognition reaffirms our commitment to fostering an environment where every team member can thrive and succeed,” said Louise McElvaney, Chief Human Resources Officer at Learning Pool.

“Employee development is future-focused and evidences a commitment to employee’s long-term growth. It ensures your people feel valued, and feeds into the overall company culture and strategy. Each year, we recognise organisations whose thriving workplace cultures are enabling both their people and their business to flourish.

Opportunities for learning and development are a crucial element of this success, which is why we’re so thrilled to be recognising companies like Learning Pool for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK.
