The high-performing team of entrepreneurs, L&D champions, and deep thinkers at Jhana who love big ideas and learning

Giving managers what they want and need to learn

At Jhana, being recognized as a disruptive new vendor in the HR software market isn't about being trendy or convenient. It's about delivering on a mission they say gets their team out of bed each day: Help millions of people get the great leader they deserve.

Jhana logoBased in San Francisco, the company has developed an increasingly popular platform that provides bite-sized learning for anyone who leads a team. It's a unique learning environment with a friendly, conversational tone that's packed with practical advice for managers and peppered with humorous cartoons to keep things interesting.

Created by a "high-performing team of entrepreneurs, L&D champions, and deep thinkers who love big ideas and learning," Jhana derives its name from a Buddhist term for elevated states of mind.

Jhana is also now an integral part of the best-in-class learning solutions available from Advantage Performance Group.

"We're thrilled to be recognized as a disruptive vendor by Deloitte," says Suzanne Leung, vice president of sales at Jhana. "The report validates what we're hearing from managers and HR leaders, which is that they increasingly want learning that's bite-sized, self-directed and already embedded into managers' busy workdays."

Ultimately, Leung says, "It's about focusing on what managers need and how they want to learn, not what's trendy or convenient."

For Advantage Performance Group, "Jhana represents an exciting opportunity for us to provide a world-class just-in-time learning and performance support tool to our clients, many of whom are faced with challenges that make it difficult to implement a largely classroom-based learning strategy," says Advantage Partner Bennett Phillips. "We’re very picky when we select new thought leaders to add to our network, so when it became clear that we needed to grow our offerings in the eLearning space, we knew it needed to be something cutting-edge, mobile-optimized, easily navigated and digested, and highly relevant for the modern leader. To say that Jhana was a perfect fit for these needs is putting it lightly."

Phillips is based in Nashville but discovered Jhana several years ago when he was in the San Francisco Bay Area.  "We began the relationship by working collaboratively alongside a couple of key clients, and the partnership took on a life of its own. We are very excited to be a part of Jhana’s explosive growth, and to have the honor of providing such a fantastic resource to our clients."

Jhana is among "disruptive new vendors" recognized in the Deloitte report,  HR Technology Disruptions for 2017: Nine Trends Reinventing the HR Software Market, with Jhana standing alone in the report's leadership development category.
