“Penn Foster has helped our associates not only envision better lives for themselves, but go out and actually achieve it, too,” said Canfield. “They’re learning new skills every day that will help them for the rest of their careers.”
A national workforce in need of new skills
Skills for work, skills for life
Two years later, in the summer of 2019, EmployBridge doubled down on the Better WorkLife initiative to introduce the LifeSkills Studio, a new collection of seven programs dedicated to helping EmployBridge associates to learn general life skills like budgeting, goal setting, managing personal health, professional communication skills, and more. EmployBridge also decided to open the LifeSkills Studio to applicants, in a dedicated effort to allow them access to immediate skill development opportunities before ever even beginning their first job assignment. The goal in offering these courses to associates and applicants alike was that EmployBridge could continue to show their commitment to helping people improve, both professionally and personally, regardless of their tenure as an EmployBridge associate.
Also in 2019, EmployBridge introduced the concept of badging to all Better WorkLife programs, allowing enrolled students to earn proof of skills attained throughout their time in the programs. By having the ability to earn “skill badges” along the way instead of merely one credential upon final completion, associates are able to gain tangible skills that they can add to their resumés and use to further their career while still enrolled in a program.
