PSI Talent Management acquires innovative learning solutions Solvably and Digital Skills Lab from MassiveU
Award-Winning Collaborative Online Learning Platforms Bring Transformational Technology to PSI Talent Management’s Suite of Solutions
GLENDALE, Calif., February 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PSI Talent Management, focused on staying ahead of the changing needs of the workplace, today announces that it has acquired Solvably, the premier collaborative problem-solving platform for lifelong learners, and Digital Skills Lab (dlab), an automatic scoring assessment solution that empowers individuals to learn digital skills in Microsoft and other IT applications, from MassiveU.
According to the ATD 2020 State of the Industry Report, organizations that offer training and development programs have 218% higher revenue per employee and 24% higher profit margins. And, in a rapidly changing world of work, online learning is on the rise due to the dramatic increase in the number of remote workers.
In today’s hybrid work environment, critical thinking, learning agility, and the social and collaborative aspects of work performance continue to be important, according to 2021 research from PSI Talent Management. A truly powerful L&D program must also assess how and when employees work differently in person versus virtual, and even how nuances and different virtual environments can prompt different ways of working. This is why it is essential to ensure that e-learning programs drive behavior change in an engaging and innovative way.
PSI Talent Management’s psychological expertise paired with Solvably’s inspiring technology presents the learning and development market with a new and engaging way to drive behavior change. Solvably brings real-world collaboration and problem solving in an active virtual learning environment with measurable, skill-based learning outcomes. With dlab, learners can hone their digital skills and expertise in Microsoft Office, for example, virtually and in real time through the in-app learning platform that integrates with existing learning management systems . Because dlab provides real-time feedback as learners work on a document or program, workers can truly learn by doing.
Solvably and dlab will enhance PSI Talent Management’s AIM learning system by enabling organizations to approach the learning and development process from a different perspective, moving beyond self-learning and integrating collaboration through a series of real-life situations. Unlike traditional e-learning solutions, the experience centers around solving an authentic challenge or problem and allows organizations to assess and see employee strengths and areas for development.
“Never has there been greater need to drive a deeper learning experience and lasting behavior change for upskilling and reskilling through innovative collaborative and engaging digital experiences,” said Angelo Biasi, CEO and Founder of MassiveU. “We are excited to add the differentiating value that Solvably and dlab bring to PSI’s customer base as we collectively transform at scale.”

Creating a collaborative learning environment that models our world of work today ‘today means being “distributed” doesn’t have to mean being “disconnected”, said Brad KendallSVP at PSI Talent Management, Americas.
