Upgrad Acquires Work Better Training

‘Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.’ - J.C. Penney

We are excited to share that Work Better is now part of ‘upGrad’ - one of Asia’s largest and fastest growing edtech companies.

The journey so far has been nothing less than a roller-coaster ride for Work Better and its co-founders. They started around a dining table, laying the foundational bricks with the strong belief that soft skills can transform the lives of people. From there on, we slowly started to grow; one employee, one client at a time. We had our fair share of ups and downs. What remained constant was our unwavering belief in the power of soft skills. By learning from our mistakes, we grew to be one of the most sought-after corporate training companies in India. Since our inception, we trained over 1 million professionals from over 400 companies, many of whom feature in Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies’ lists. With more than 500 facilitators, we conducted 7,600 workshops in the year 2020-21 alone.

Having reached this scale independently, to have an even larger impact, we decided to join forces with a partner with similar aspirations. This led to the coming together of Work Better & upGrad. Just like us, they strongly believe in the need for human resource development to uplift individuals, companies and the country.

This partnership between two strong forces in the skill development space will greatly benefit everyone - clients, trainers, employees and others. With Work Better being experts in soft skills and upGrad adding its technical/hard skills expertise, we will be able to offer better, more holistic solutions.

This journey from being a two-member independent company to becoming an integral part of one of Asia’s largest edtech companies wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our stakeholders. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you for supporting us through our journey, and helping us achieve this significant milestone.

This is just ‘day 1’ for us, as the need for soft skills training is huge. From here on, we endeavour to keep growing bigger following our aspiration to positively impact a maximum number of working professionals.

We are truly excited about this new phase of our journey and look forward to the continued support of our stakeholders to reach greater heights together.
