Learning Technologies Group plc (LTG), the London-based provider of services and software for digital learning and talent management, has acquired PDT Global, a leading provider of online diversity and inclusion solutions.
PDT (The People Development Team) Global is a diversity and inclusion training and consultancy firm, headquartered in London. With a global network of facilitators, PDT supports an international customer base in addressing highly topical themes that include developing female talent, race allyship, sexual orientation and gender identity equality, leading remote teams and inclusion as a strategic driver.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
PDT Global will become part of Affirmity, LTG’s existing workforce compliance and diversity business, headquartered in Irving, Tex. The integration of PDT Global dramatically expands Affirmity’s global reach as well as its online training and diversity consulting capabilities, providing a greatly enhanced offering to customers.
Affirmity’s focus on workforce diversity metrics, benchmarking, and qualitative assessment enables organizations to understand their key issues with respect to diversity and inclusion, while PDT Global’s strategic consulting and online learning interventions will enable them to better address those issues at scale as part of a holistic, end-to-end solution.
PDT Global’s founders and management will play significant roles in leading the combined business.
“I am delighted to announce our acquisition of PDT Global, which has an outstanding reputation as a trusted provider of high-quality learning solutions in the field. Not only does the combined proposition better enable us to meet the needs of our clients, it also provides the ideal platform from which to accelerate the expansion of our Affirmity business beyond North America to a broader international audience,” commented Jonathan Satchell, chief executive of LTG.
LTG offers end-to-end learning and talent solutions ranging from strategic consultancy, through a range of content and platform solutions to analytical insights that enable corporate and government clients to close the gap between current and future workforce capability. With offices in Europe, North America, South America and Asia-Pacific, LTG’s businesses include LEO Learning, Gomo, PRELOADED, Rustici Software, PeopleFluent, Affirmity, Watershed, VectorVMS, Instilled, and Open LMS.
