Learn More About GLS

Global Learning Systems (GLS) got its start nearly 30 years ago – almost before the Internet! At that time, human resources information systems (HRIS) were just moving from legacy mainframes to client/server technologies as companies scrambled to avoid the impending doom of Y2K. (For those who don’t go quite that far back, this refers to a concern that legacy programs would fail because they wouldn’t know how to deal with “00” in date fields.)

In its former incarnation as Keystone Learning, GLS was producing award-winning custom online training. This interactive training was designed, scripted and programmed to client specifications to provide a multimedia learning experience. Over time, and with the advent of the learning management system (LMS), the company turned its focus to developing off-the-shelf training products, largely around business applications. GLS also realized that not every organization was ready to purchase an LMS, but still needed a simplified delivery platform for online training. So, it developed GLS OnDemand for that purpose.

Early on, GLS recognized the threat posed to organizations by poor security awareness and lax employee behavior when it came to basic security precautions, such as strong passwords and not clicking on suspicious links. At that time, GLS turned its focus to developing hosted security awareness programs focused on changing those behaviors.
