One of the big challenges our customers are asking us to help them solve is developing a new generation of leaders and managers — especially those moving from technology into their first leadership roles. Many of those managers are literally part of the next generation. Millennials are now a plurality in the workforce, and as a group value (and expect) training and development support from their employer (obligatory Mary Meeker reference below).
So when we first met Kate Matsudaira and Popforms through her work co-chairing the 2013 Cultivate conference (produced by Safari’s parent company, O’Reilly Media), we really admired the Popforms approach to helping self-starters and new leaders take charge of their careers with bite-sized and actionable tools — and we weren’t surprised at all to learn they were fielding a lot of interest from corporate customers.
A conversation that started initially as a content partnership developed into something deeper as we got to know more about Popforms and realized what a great complement their training tools were to Safari’s collection of top-quality video courses, ebooks, and conference videos.
I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve acquired Popforms, and will begin offering their career-development tools to Safari customers.
