Global Shares was founded in 2005 with a passion for share plan administration and a vision to build a company that changed the market through innovative technology. Now with offices in New York, Nashville, Lisbon, Barcelona, Tokyo, Beijing and Ireland, Global Shares have more than 200 staff and support client share participants in more than 100 countries around the world.
With recent growth came the challenge of ensuring that the Global Shares team retained their high standards of knowledge and professional service when working with multilingual clients of all sectors and sizes. Dependency on face to face and live training had become impractical and increasingly expensive and the company recognized the opportunity to move to a blended learning model with online training playing a more important role.
Following a comprehensive market review, Global Shares chose Learning Pool on the basis of a single-source agreement for all aspects of the solution; pre-built catalogue learning content, content authoring tools and services, a market-leading learning management system (LMS) platform and provision of easy user access through single sign-on.
Both Learning Pool and Global Shares are also listed on Deloitte’s 2018 Technology Fast 50™, which ranks the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Ireland based on their average percentage revenue growth over four years, as well as their innovation and entrepreneurship.
“For a company like ours, working with a single proven partner for all aspects of our needs means we can focus on the learning outcomes rather than the solution inputs. Ours is a dynamic business which is founded on the expertise of our staff and it’s important that we continue to invest in our collective knowledge of the industry and Global Shares’ solutions. We’re excited by the opportunity to work with Learning Pool and benefit from their extensive experience and range of learning technologies.”
Úna FitzGerald, Head of Learning & Development at Global Shares
