Randstad N : US and Udemy announce new partnership to launch skilling program for American workers

11/16/2020 | 09:11am EST
Randstad US is committed to skilling 40,000 U.S. workers by the end of 2020

Atlanta, GA - November 16, 2020 - Randstad USand Udemytoday announced a partnership to offer free educational courses to American workers either already placed or currently looking for roles through Randstad's job network. The partnership focuses on providing access to the skills needed to increase career mobility in primarily technical sectors.

The courses offered by this partnership align with the skills needed for employment in today's most in-demand jobs. These courses span critical business skills, personal development and soft skills. Learning paths focused on technical and exam prep skills include topics like AWS, Cloud, CCSIP, PHP, MEAN, Python, AI, machine learning, CISA, CISM, CEH and more.

'We have partnered with Udemy to ensure that our talent has access to the fresh and high-quality content they need to become and remain employable in the ever-changing job market,' said Jennifer Seith, senior vice president of product strategy and innovation at Randstad US. 'The pandemic has highlighted the importance of equipping every American with versatile skills that can easily transfer to growth industries, especially in the technology sector. This partnership will allow talent in Randstad's network to focus on enhancing their skills to grow in their current roles and better position themselves for future roles, as well.'

At present, the American economy faces a significant skills gap - there are 250,000 fewer data scientiststhan the country needs, for example - that is expected to cost $1.2 trillion in reduced economic outputthrough 2029 unless employers commit resources to reskilling and upskilling their employees.

Research by Randstad US shows that connecting an employee's current work to potential career growth is a key motivator for completing courses and certifications. In the first two months of the partnership, Randstad US achieved a 54 percent enrollment rate, and participants consumed more than 3,800 hours of course content. Additionally, 18 percent of Randstad talent who participated in upskilling courses have been redeployed within 30 days of completing their most recent assignments.

'Udemy is proud to partner with forward-thinking organizations like Randstad that are directly aligned with our mission to improve lives through learning,' said Stephanie Stapleton, vice president of customer success at Udemy. 'As the skills required to do nearly every job continue to change, this partnership will provide access to development opportunities that are actionable, dynamic, and meet individuals in their specific moment of need.'

The partnership is part of Randstad US' contribution to the Pledge to America's Workers, a national initiative to train and retrain workers in order to translate their skills to more in-demand industries. Through the initiative, Randstad US is committed to skilling 40,000 U.S. workers- and to building a more resilient workforce in a challenging economy exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
