Join Skillsoft in Celebrating Learning Leaders Appreciation Day on September 17

Day to celebrate the efforts and achievements of learning and development professionals

NASHUA, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Skillsoft is celebrating the first annual Learning Leaders Appreciation Day on Sep. 17. Skillsoft is aiming to recognize learning and development professionals for their contributions in growing the skills and capabilities of workforces in organizations around the world. The purpose of Learning Leaders Appreciation Day is to acknowledge those working in corporate professional development and encourage them to take pride in their role in developing human capital.

“Those working in learning and development play a pivotal role in ensuring an organization’s most valuable assets, its people, have the skills and knowledge they need to develop and be successful,” said Pam Boiros, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, Skillsoft. “Too often these leaders go unrecognized, considering the impact they have on both individual growth and organizational success. We think it’s time these leaders take an opportunity to celebrate their achievements.”

Learning Leaders can use the following resources to celebrate their efforts:

  • A social sharing badge for Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for participants to declare their status as a Learning Leader using the hashtag #LearningAppreciation;
  • A certificate of appreciation to be printed out and filled in for key team members as a way of recognizing their contributions;
  • A special signature graphic to add to email signatures; and
  • A white paper with actionable tips for learning professionals to advance their careers and stay ahead, entitled “6 Ways for L&D to Earn a Seat at the Table.”
