Career Climbers / 25th April 2017

Today, EVERFI, Inc., the nation’s leading education technology innovator, announced the acquisition of online compliance training company Workplace Answers. The acquisition expands EVERFI’s commitment to solving complex prevention and workforce challenges through interactive, scalable education solutions.

“Nearly a decade ago, EVERFI was founded on the conviction that we could harness innovative, digital education to engage learners on the largest and most intractable social issues of our times – from financial education and diversity, to sexual assault and harassment prevention,” said EVERFI CEO Tom Davidson. “By bringing Workplace Answers into the EVERFI Network we have become the world’s largest company committed to empowering learners at every stage of their lives, from the classroom to the boardroom.”

The acquisition of Workplace Answers, also includes their Campus Answers brand, which provides faculty and staff training around critical campus issues like sexual harassment prevention training. The combined company will now serve over 1,700 campuses and provide them access to the Campus Prevention Network, a nationwide initiative committed to creating safer, healthier communities. Through the Campus Prevention Network, schools across the country will take a pledge to adopt the highest standards of prevention related to critical health and safety challenges, including sexual assault and alcohol abuse, and to assess the progress and impact of their efforts.

“Workplace Answers and EVERFI share the same philosophy of engaging the learner and putting the customer at the center of product innovation,” said Girish Pashilkar, CEO of Workplace Answers, LLC. “As we considered growth strategies for Workplace Answers, I felt confident that being acquired by EVERFI would allow us to significantly amplify our impact in critical areas such as preventing corruption, discrimination and sexual violence. Additionally, EVERFI’s inclusive and purpose-driven culture would continue to provide a thriving work environment for our talented employees.”

“Through the Campus Prevention Network, EVERFI is creating a powerful community dedicated to using evidence-based best practices, data, and scalable training to take on some of the toughest challenges facing colleges and universities,” said Preston Clark, President of EVERFI’s Higher Education and Corporate Compliance divisions. “The addition of Workplace Answers reaffirms our commitment to support schools and companies in this important work, and accelerates the incredible momentum driving progress across the country.”
