What Success Look Like At Skillsoft:



Team members continually push towards achieving our collective purpose. They recognize that their individual efforts must fundamentally connect throughout the organization to achieve a greater impact. They are adept at working cross functionally and acknowledge the contributions of others.



Team members are always questioning how it can be done better – “that’s the way it has always been done” is never the right answer. They are passionate, resourceful and resilient to setbacks. They believe in positively transforming people’s lives and careers through continuous learning. They inspire others to grow outside of their comfort zone.



Team members never compromise integrity to achieve results. They support the customer and each other, and are constantly mindful of creating a positive customer experience both internally and externally.




Team members are innovative, creative and intellectually curious. They incorporate different perspectives into their thinking. They respond quickly and positively to changing demands while remaining keenly focused on how people learn and the learner experience.




Team members hold themselves accountable. They take a data driven approach to determining achievement effectiveness. They are never satisfied with the notion of “It’s good enough.”
