We partnered with Josh Bersin to build the world’s first global professional development Academy for HR. The Josh Bersin Academy has reached 10,000+ members in our first year and continues to grow.

Josh Bersin, the preeminent global analyst and thought leader in HR, recognized that tectonic shifts in the world of work were having a huge impact on the HR profession. Unless the profession transformed it would become increasingly obsolete.
Josh wanted to use his years of experience in the field, and his vision of where HR was heading, to help HR transform. He wanted to do it in a way that was truly global, affordable for everyone, and was collaborative at the core.
Quality Mattered: Most online learning companies that Josh could have partnered with didn’t have the content expertise to create the kind of quality learning experience Josh wanted.
Need for Social: MOOCs or video-based training had the global reach, but they did not have the deep social learning that Josh knew would be essential to driving transformation.
Speed & Cost: developing something independently would have taken too long and been too expensive.
Josh ultimately chose Nomadic Learning to build and take the Josh Bersin Academy to market.
The Josh Bersin Academy is built on Nomadic’s existing team-based social learning platform, and leverages Nomadic proprietary learning format (the Field Manual) to deliver world-class learning to HR Professionals around the world.
The platform features time-bound online Programs on the most important HR topics, a library of hundreds of exclusive HR Resources, and a community experience where HR professionals from around the world can share their ideas and ask each other for advice.
Using our unique approach to content production, Nomadic has created 9 Certificate Programs for the Josh Bersin Academy (so far), hundreds of microlearning assets, and filmed dozens of global HR professionals from around the world.
The Josh Bersin Academy has established itself at the learning destination for HR professionals in under 12 months. The Academy has a thriving learning community with over 10,000 HR practitioners from over 92 different countries around the world. The Josh Bersin Academy has been adopted as an enterprise HR learning solution by leading organizations, including Accenture, Verizon, Vodafone, Lego, Tata and many more.
