Wilson Learning Turns 50

May 11, 2015

In 1965, Larry Wilson created Wilson Learning with the notion that people should strive for performance with fulfillment. A half century later, his legacy and values remain at the heart of our business and within our clients’ organizations as a great testament to the resilience of this guiding belief.

“As learning experts for 50 years, our quest for innovation never ends,” said Tom Roth, Chief Operating Officer of Wilson Learning Worldwide. “Our commitment has been to design learning solutions to address human performance needs and provide transformational learning that is targeted, reinforced, and sustained. We do this by remaining at the forefront of advancing best practices to meet the needs of the ever-evolving learner, no matter where they are in the world.”

We are honored to have worked with so many outstanding clients over the past 50 years. The exceptional solutions and results we have helped clients achieve are evidence of the quality, innovation, and commitment that has sustained us over five decades.

In an industry that has undergone great transformation over the years, Wilson Learning is one of the few original training organizations that has continually evolved and developed new learning solutions, processes, and approaches to address the changing needs of organizations.

Wilson Learning’s many capabilities began with products such as the filmstrip and video, leader guides, interactive video disc, and electronic assessment, which were revolutionary in their time. Over the years, these have evolved to more recent advancements such as blended learning solutions employing different learning modalities and a powerful extended learning approach that leverages the latest research on learning transfer.

Our commitment continues as we respond to the changing needs of our customers and the marketplace with comprehensive learning services such as aligning learning to strategic objectives to secure business outcomes, gaining executive sponsorship, and thought leadership on implementation best practices.

Our holistic approach to human performance combines time-tested solutions and services that have found their way into the fabric of resilient organizations around the world. To learn more, contact Wilson Learning at or 800.328.7937.

The year-long global celebration will begin in May with a kick-off at the ATD 2015 International Conference and Exposition in Orlando, Florida.
