Digital Latitudes’ New Online Onboarding Services and New Open Source Learning Options Dramatically Improve New Hires’ Effectiveness

Highlands Ranch, CO, February 19, 2010 --( Digital Latitudes, Inc. announced today a new customizable online onboarding program and a new open source learning offering to give firms of all sizes the flexibility to increase the effectiveness of new hires, while saving clients and their HR and Training departments valuable time, money and frustration.

“Our pilot program and several independent studies show that online onboarding has powerful and distinct benefits,” said Paul Hilbink, Digital Latitudes CEO and Founder. “When properly implemented, firms can accelerate the time to performance of new hires by using e-learning to merge them into their jobs more quickly.”

Digital Latitudes is now offering the “Welcome Module” and the “Benefits Module” to enable clients to customize the programs and benefits they offer to their new employees. The firm can customize the online onboarding modules with each client’s logo and color palette.

“However, compressing time to new hire effectiveness is only half the battle, we are also offering a complete reproducible library of over 75 instructor-led courses, a collection of self-paced e-learning programs to assure that new hires and existing employees can relate better, communicate better, collaborate better to give their firms a sustainable competitive advantage,” added Hilbink.

“As a client-centric developer of customized online courseware, and thanks to the low cost of digital delivery, we can afford to provide firms with a vast collection of e-learning and customizable and reproducible classroom courses at a fraction of what our competitors charge,” said David Steven Schwartz, StratNEXT’s Managing Director and growth consultant to Digital Latitudes. “To give Digital Latitudes a competitive advantage, we are now offering an ‘OPEN SOURCE’ learning solution where Digital Latitudes’ clients can now customize and use people skills courses within their corporate walls – without paying additional licensing fees,” added Schwartz.

“In our increasingly globalized economy, technology and commoditized products are becoming table-stakes. Our clients know that sustainable value will depend on how well they develop their employees’ people skills to create superior customer value. We have very aggressive investment and growth plans for Digital Latitudes. To sustain our growth, we are now seeking strategic partners and equity investors to continue developing and marketing our innovative online human capital solutions. We plan to get ready for an initial public offering in the next few years,” added Hilbink.
