We’re here to make workplace learning impactful

Impactful for colleagues and effective for businesses.

We’re UX designers, technology experts and psychologists who believe innovation and business growth come from putting people at the centre of corporate learning and development.

As problem solvers specialising in learning and development, we create products and services built wholly on human-centred design principles. By applying this lens at every turn, we deliver relevant, lasting support and change to people, businesses, and those whose lives we touch.  

Our mission

Learning and development in business can feel a lot like school. Many people find it gets in the way of their job or is a way of ticking compliance boxes. When leaders don’t see measurable benefits from their investment, it erodes trust and L&D is seen as a cost centre rather than a competitive advantage.

At Solvd, we have brought together a team of problem solvers specialising human-centred design. We apply these principles to create learning and development solutions that deliver employee engagement and measurable business outcomes.

We like to work with people who are tired of the traditional approach to L&D and want to try something different. If that’s you, then we’d love to talk.

Meet the team

We’re fiercely independent; an award-winning, diverse, boutique learning and development consultancy. We’re guided by empathy, mutual respect, and commitment. That’s clear to see in the projects we choose to work on and the people we work with and develop.

Solvd for good

If we want a better world, we must take personal and collective responsibility for doing good. For us, that means partnering with future-facing organisations ready to put people first. There is only so much we can achieve alone, so we choose to support charities, organisations and people who have a meaningful impact on society, mental health, and the environment.
