NEW YORK – November 3, 2014 – LRN announced today that it will incorporate Convercent’s comprehensive Helpline and Case Management modules into its suite of ethics and compliance education and advisory services. Convercent’s service gives users in any country the ability to report misconduct and raise concerns while providing program managers with advanced reporting and analytics tools to effectively monitor risks.
“We are excited to partner with a company of Convercent’s capabilities and shared commitment toward promoting legally compliant and ethically inspired behavior,” said Dov Seidman, CEO of LRN. “LRN aspires to help foster corporate cultures where every employee, regardless of role, is free to speak out, where every concern will be listened and responded to thoughtfully and where new ideas will be considered respectfully. Convercent’s innovative technology will play a key role in enabling this two-way conversation.”
LRN’s current portfolio of services includes a broad range of education, advisory, management and technology solutions designed to help organizations develop “do-it-right,” winning cultures. Convercent’s Helpline and Case Management software is part of an integrated governance, risk and compliance platform that centralizes anonymous helplines, web portals and in-person reports, allowing organizations to identify and manage suspected misconduct.
“This partnership makes sense on many levels for LRN and Convercent, but we’re most excited about how it provides an intuitive, holistic approach to ethics and compliance,” said Patrick Quinlan, Chief Executive Officer at Convercent. “By improving the user experience of both avoiding and managing risk, the combination of our two services simplifies the day-to-day complexities of ethics and compliance management.”
