Today’s companies aren’t asking if it makes sense to implement e-learning and training programs, but how. Employees’ time is limited, resources are constrained, and navigating the learning landscape can be difficult. How do you maximize your employees’ attention, get them up to speed on critical skills as quickly as possible, and, most importantly, ensure that learning is effective?

New Approaches to Workforce Learning

Development for Every Level of Your Organization

The Future of Workplace Learning is Modular

Today’s fastest-growing, most automation-resistant, and in-demand roles feature combinations of skills that never used to be found in the same job; they’re hybrid. Acquiring these hybrid skills requires a new approach -  - modular learning. As organizations adapt their learning programs, they're discovering that modular learning approaches not only deliver the skills they need but do so in ways that are faster and more flexible than traditional training programs, a boon for both employees and the organization.

Bridging the Skills Gap for Front-Line Workers

In all types of companies, many frontline workers are facing automation-driven job security risks and looking for opportunities to play a larger role. This pool of workers is an untapped resource with the motivation and potential to upskill and reskill into the types of positions you need, but to date have been barred by lack of a bachelor’s degree, often a prerequisite for opportunities to take the next step and make a larger impact. edX partnered with top colleges, universities, and Fortune 1000 corporations to bridge this skills gap. 

Sweet Gig: Perks for Workers in the New Economy

The 21st century workforce looks markedly different than its predecessors. The new model of platform-based businesses requires a re-imagined workforce. Gig work offers flexibility, freedom and opportunity, especially important to those who might have a hard time finding salaried roles. But the lack of extensive benefits can be a challenge. Learn how leading companies like Postmates and Uber are bridging the gap.

Hear from the Innovators, the Leaders and the Disruptors in Workforce Development

"At Postmates, we recognize that as the future of work changes, we need to do our part to ensure that our Fleet members have the opportunities necessary to succeed – on or off our platform. When our data showed us many gig-workers were interested in upward mobility and educational opportunities, but didn't have access to them, we knew we needed a scalable solution. edX allows us to not only reach learners in all communities, but also provides access to quality courses from top tier institutions – widening the opportunity for long term economic security."

" edX has provided the depth and the flexibility for us to develop the experience and expertise that we need within the firm."
