You’ve probably heard the old adage, “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a sound?” The same argument can be made for learning. If you’ve learned something new and you don’t have proof, did you ever really learn something? With digital credentials, you don’t have to self-report anymore. You don’t have to rely on a traditional education path or a 4-year degree to get a job or promotion. You can turn microlearning into a robust toolbox of competency, and that’s something to be thankful for.
So this year, let’s give thanks for a new way of identifying skills. Let’s give thanks for a new way to measure learning in your organization. And let’s give thanks for a new way to attract new members or students to your organization. We’re mere weeks away from the turn of a new decade and it’s time to let the old way of doing things go. Paper certificates aren’t working. Employees want to learn something while they’re at work and feel like that learning will help them get promoted.
With over 25 million digital credentials issued on Credly, we’re thankful that so many organizations have trusted us with their digital credentials. And we’re thankful for all of the badge earners for accepting and sharing those badges. Contributing to the ecosystem of verified learning is where the future of work is headed, and we’re thankful that you’re on this journey with us.
