WASHINGTON, June 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GovLoop, the knowledge network for government, today announced its acquisition of TMGov, an association of over 100,000+ government talent management leaders, and its TMGovU online learning university. This acquisition will expand the scope, reach and learning material available through GovLoop Academy, GovLoop's recently launched, free, virtual training resource created specifically for government.

"There is a revolution going on in government learning," said Steve Ressler, President and Founder of GovLoop. "A new generation of government employees expects modern and compelling training options led by world class practitioners. We've started that journey with our launch of GovLoop Academy and in just one month thousands of government employees have taken one of the more than 25 courses we offer."

"We are thrilled to bring TMGov and TMGovU into the GovLoop family," said Allan Zeman, Founder and Chairman of TMGov. "We've always been impressed with GovLoop's passion for innovative learning and talent management approaches for managers and leaders -- we can't wait to see how GovLoop brings our resources to a grand scale."

The acquisition of TMGov expands GovLoop Academy's offerings to over 100 free courses geared towards public sector workers. The courses are currently available at http://tmgov.org/tmgovu and will be fully incorporated into http://academy.govloop.com by the end of the year.
