Article by edX For Business

The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored both the risk many job functions face during severe economic change, alongside technological changes like automation, and the skills and disciplines that remain resilient during such changes.

As part of our ongoing commitment to support organizations in identifying and growing the skills and capabilities needed to compete, edX has launched a new program specifically for workers, businesses, and institutions impacted by COVID-19. In coordination with Emerson Collective (Laurene Powell Jobs' Foundation) effort on workforce skilling, we designed the Workforce Acceleration Recovery Program to help upskill current and support displaced workforces as quickly as possible with strong, future-resilient skill sets.

Whether upskilling your workforce to fill gaps and safeguard against the continued economic impact of COVID-19, or arming displaced workers with pathways to job opportunities elsewhere, learn how you can leverage the Workforce Acceleration Recovery Program for your business.

What is the Workforce Acceleration Recovery Program?

The Workforce Recovery Acceleration Program offers discounted credentials that unlock new skills and knowledge in fast-growing fields and open pathways to new job opportunities for impacted or at-risk workers. Subject areas include information technology, computer science, project management, applied AI, finance, digital media, and more.

Standout Skills and Certificates in Fast-Growing Fields

Through the program, your employees will have access to courses and programs from top universities that build skills in high-demand fields, from data science to business.
