Cisco and Emtrain Announce Partnership to Build a Conscious Workplace Culture for Hybrid Work

Project focuses on delivering in-app training to create inclusive workplaces on Webex

Emtrain, a company providing eLearning and analytics to create inclusive workplaces by developing pro-social skills, and Cisco are announcing a partnership to integrate Emtrain’s training modules through WebEx’s collaboration solutions. This is one of the first projects of a broader partnership with Cisco to support workplace culture in a changing hybrid workplace.

With Emtrain, Webex users can now engage and train employees across their global workforce with timely and relevant content focusing on real-life workplace scenarios. These ready-to-go resources via Webex will address issues such as harassment, respect and unconscious bias, inclusion, and LGBTQIA+.

“At Cisco, we know that inclusion and diversity fuel possibility and innovation and benefit all of our stakeholders tremendously. We rely on Emtrain to support this mission-critical culture-building,” said Fran Katsoudas, Cisco EVP and Chief People, Policy & Purpose Officer. “I am thrilled that we can now access Emtrain right from within Webex where we all spend our day. This integration keeps culture top of mind and gives our employees easy access to powerful e-Learning and workplace management content.”

“Cisco recognizes that the entire nature of how and where we work has changed, and that means we need new approaches to developing a conscious culture,” said Emtrain founder and CEO Janine Yancey. “Francine Katsoudas, Cisco’s Chief HR Officer, had the foresight to see how Emtrain’s powerful eLearning solution combined with Webex’s innovative hybrid work solutions creates a unique opportunity to develop inclusive skills right in the flow of work where workers are already engaged.”

Emtrain will be available on Webex starting this June, free to everyone after an Emtrain account creation.
