The latest training industry mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, and more.


>> Social relationship management for hiring firm Jobscience acquired social profile management company Atomkeep to help job seekers validate and control their social identity across multiple sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, Monster, Yelp, and YouTube. Accessing user-validated accounts helps recruiters and employers avoid cases of mistaken identity and potential liability issues.

Harvard ManageMentor is the centerpiece of LG Health’s initiative to create a cadre of agile leaders equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to navigate today’s complex and continuously changing health-care environment.

>> Independent IT training company New Horizons Worldwide, Inc., entered into a definitive merger agreement under which it will be acquired by NWHW Holdings, Inc., a newly formed entity backed by investment firm (and current investor) Camden Partners Holdings, LLC, and an investor group. Total enterprise value of the transaction is approximately $56 million.

From the Editor
