With BetterUp, Degreed Can Now Deliver Cross-Platform Personalized Coaching for Members Worldwide

Austin, TX – January 24, 2024 BetterUp®, the global leader in transformative coaching and inventor of virtual coaching, today announced a partnership with Degreed, the leading technology suite for lifelong learning and data-driven development. The partnership combines resources from both BetterUp and the Degreed Learning Experience Platform (LXP) to more effectively deploy coaching and meaningful learning opportunities for customers who currently use both platforms. Degreed customers can find BetterUp on the list of preferred partners which currently houses hundreds of thousands of learning pathways for companies to access for their employees. This is BetterUp’s first integration with a LXP and it will be the first-ever coaching resource available on Degreed.

Starting today, the integration will facilitate a cross-platform leadership development resource. The BetterUp pathway is discoverable in Degreed, where employees already turn for meaningful learning and development. This partnership will centralize actions for members by integrating the BetterUp Coaching Path and track employee progress for customers to better understand real-time skill development. Getting Degreed configured with BetterUp takes less than an hour and is secure through SSO authorization. 

"BetterUp and Degreed are committed to delivering scalable workforce development and transformation opportunities," said Erik Darby, Vice President of Business Development at BetterUp. "Through this partnership, we seamlessly integrate coaching into the flow of work of thousands of Degreed customers, empowering organizations to enhance the personal growth and development of their workforce with personalized 1:1 BetterUp coaching.”

BetterUp offers coaching and content powered by insights from more than 3 million coaching sessions and a roster of expert coaches that specialize in supporting a wide range of topics like sleep, nutrition, communication effectiveness, diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging, and more. BetterUp has been shown to drive positive behavior change – on average, members who start their coaching journey low in these areas see a 149% increase in resilience, a 94% increase in strategic planning, an 80% increase in social connection, a 79% increase in focus, and a 48% increase in overall employee experience. 

"We are thrilled to introduce our groundbreaking partnership with BetterUp,” said Nag Chandrashekar, Chief Product Officer at Degreed,  “This collaboration is founded on the shared mission of creating a more integrated learning and development experience, supporting discovery, and unlocking a partnership that enhances the value of leadership development resources across both platforms.”

With a vast network of users and customers, Degreed is committed to centralizing learning and development opportunities, reducing cognitive load, and transforming the way people grow in their careers. Degreed LXP serves over 400 enterprises (10K - 100K employees) with users in more than 200 countries and is one of the only open, independent LXPs on the market.
