We created The Forem because leveling the playing field isn’t only the right thing to do; it’s the smart thing to do for any business.

What We Believe

Great programs fail because they can’t scale

80% of training and coaching budgets are typically spent on VP-level executives and above, who represent only 20% of the organization. This polarized spending doesn't help companies grow a pipeline of future leaders. Even the best training is typically delivered to a small percentage of employees each year because of L&D time constraints. With our tech infrastructure, companies can reach 100% of employees at once.

Video training
​​doesn’t work

No employee feels invested in after being sent a video link. Pre-recorded online courses have a 96% dropout rate1, and even when learners find high-quality, relevant videos, they have to learn alone: disconnected from other employees or the business.

Community at scale is a must-have for modern workplaces

Employees are happier, have longer tenure, and are more productive when they feel a sense of belonging within their company, yet most companies deprioritize community building.

Learner momentum needs to be sustained

Since 70% of what’s taught in a workshop is forgotten within a day2, learning shouldn’t be limited to a single course or webinar. Ongoing, cohort-based live training is a better way.
