(August 23, 2017) — EmployBridge, a large industrial staffing company whose ProLogistix unit is the biggest employer of U.S. warehouse and distribution center workers, said today it will make free online educational courses available to EmployBridge workers interested in obtaining new skills for career advancement.

The educational initiative, called "Better Worklife Academy," will be offered through Penn Foster, a Scranton, Pa.-based company which provides online learning and skills training across multiple industries. Atlanta-based EmployBridge will underwrite the cost of the courses, it said. Associates need to work for EmployBridge for 80 hours to be eligible for the program.

According to EmployBridge, the program will appeal to workers who want to move into better-paying and more stimulating positions, but don't have the time or the resources to attend community colleges and other forms of traditional education. Brian Devine, who founded ProLogistix in 1999, said the courses are divided into 20- and 30-miniute modules, allowing students to squeeze in a module or two on their lunch break, on their way to work, or at home after work. The curriculum is a mix of logistics, manufacturing, and clerical offerings, Devine said.
