FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
St Louis, April 20 2019 - Engagedly is pleased to announce a partnership with Purdue University Global, as a part of Engagedly’s employee performance improvement program.

Purdue Global, a public, nonprofit online institution of higher education, specializes in serving the needs of working adult learners, offering associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs including business, information technology, cybersecurity, accounting and finance.

We believe this tuition benefit will support employees in the pursuit of expanding their skill set, earning their degrees and advancing in their careers. As their performance improves, our clients will improve along with them. Our partnership with Purdue Global fits with our thesis of employee development for the digital generation.”
Chellappa said Engagedly chose to partner with Purdue Global because of its demonstrated ability to help working adults acquire and apply knowledge, skills and abilities while earning their degrees conveniently, affordably and quickly.
