ProSphere’s Online Learning Usage Has Quadrupled in 4 Months. Here’s Why.

August 27, 2018

See how LinkedIn Learning helped ProSphere build a culture of learning.

In March, ProSphere launched LinkedIn Learning to replace the tech-focused online learning solution it had been previously using.

The result? A whopping 4x increase in learner engagement — in just four months.

“It’s incredible,” ProSphere Director of Workforce Management Michael Quinn said. “The numbers speak for themself.”

Why has there been such an increase? Because, according to ProSphere employees, LinkedIn Learning is easy-to-use and the skills employees learn can be quickly applied on the job. In short, it drives real results.

“I am impressed with LinkedIn Learning,” ProSphere Senior Program Manager Stephen Engel said. “The content is arranged in a logical fashion and I find the curriculum challenging. The skills that I’m refreshing — and the new skills I’m learning for the first time — give me a great sense of accomplishment.”

And, LinkedIn Learning has even helped ProSphere expand a hugely important government contract, largely because it’s helped onboard employees faster.

“LinkedIn Learning was an absolute game-changer for me as a manager,” Operations Manager ESD Operations Derek Brown said. “Combining LinkedIn Learning with hands-on experience, we were able to quickly staff and train more than 100 employees for a critical enterprise service desk contract. The wide range of Windows, IT help desk and customer service/management courses enabled us to certify, grow and upskill our workforce better than any of our competitors.”

Perhaps most importantly, LinkedIn Learning isn’t just driving financial results, it’s also a key ingredient in ProSphere building a best-in-class company culture.

“We are trying to get to a point where we can say we train our employees so well they can leave, but we treat them so well they want to stay,” Quinn said. “That’s our goal. And LinkedIn Learning plays a major role in that.”
