LONDON (March 26, 2019)—
Learning Technologies Group plc (LTG) has been recognized as one of Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies by the Financial Times (FT). The honor follows LTG’s progress to extend its offerings beyond corporate digital learning to talent management services and technology.

The third annual FT 1000 ranking, compiled with Statista, includes European companies that reached the highest compound annual growth rate in revenue between 2014 and 2017.

“We are honored that the Financial Times has recognized LTG among the top 1,000 companies that are the driving force of the European economy,” said Jonathan Satchell, Chief Executive of LTG. “We’re focused on delivering innovative services to our customers while expanding our reach in the rapidly growing e-learning and talent management market. Inclusion on the Financial Times list is a recognition of our ability to evolve and address all aspects of the employee lifecycle, while maintaining our core mission of providing the best products and services to our customers.”

LTG continues to expand its market presence through enhanced product offerings and strategic acquisitions, including the most recent integrations of PeopleFluent and Watershed. PeopleFluent powers talent strategy with comprehensive recruiting, performance, succession, compensation, and learning solutions, while the acquisition of Watershed, brings data analytics capabilities in-house to give clients compelling insights into their learning programs.
