ATLANTA, GA, (August 23, 2017) — EmployBridge, the nation's largest industrial staffing company, today announced that it is partnering with online learning and skills training leader Penn Foster to launch Better WorkLife Academy, making a wide array of free career-focused courses available to its Associates across the country.

"This initiative to underwrite courses on behalf of our Associates reinforces our company goal to help those who work with us to improve their skills, earn higher pay and better their lives," said Tom Bickes, CEO, EmployBridge. "And by partnering with Penn Foster, a prominent force in the education community, we can also do our part to address the skills gap that continues to cause labor market challenges."

According to Bickes, the skills gap and related problems will not just go away on their own. He cited a just-released National Governors Association paper on workforce development which said that "business leaders throughout our nation warn of a skills crisis due to the lack of qualified workers to fill the high-skilled jobs of tomorrow."

Penn Foster, a leading provider of skills development training and credentials for today's frontline workforce, delivers its courses in a self-paced, competency-based model wrapped by comprehensive academic, professional and personal support and coaching.
