Company Description

Guild enables forward-thinking employers to invest in their employees, unlocking life-changing opportunities for personal and professional growth through education and learning programs, career development, and one-on-one coaching. We partner with the nation’s largest employers to create a culture of opportunity that will help them attract and retain top talent while building the workforce of the future. Our marketplace of curated education and learning programs was designed with working adults in mind. We offer support, guidance, and resources every step of the way, and strive to ensure that the new skills employees build translate into in-demand career pathways — and that employees don’t have to pay for tuition or career services on their own.
