LinkedIn Learning’s efforts to help those hard-hit by the pandemic
LinkedIn Learning is addressing its collaborative efforts with a variety of workforce entities to help those affected by COVID-19.
Jake Hirsch-Allen is the North America Workforce Development and Higher Ed System Lead for LinkedIn. He says through these collaborations, LinkedIn Learning content should become available to people who are disadvantaged, have had barriers to employment, or were recently laid off.
He notes there are 15,000 courses—in multiple languages—that are focused on the most in-demand skills. Additionally, in another effort to help during the pandemic, LinkedIn Learning has unlocked 16 of its courses to aid employees adapt to working remotely.
Hirsch-Allen says these courses are designed to provide “all of the leading practices on how to manage a team from home or how to actually go through your workday at home.”
