Every workplace can be a place of continual learning

While businesses in every sector have been working toward a digital transformation for the past several years, covid-19 accelerated this shift across industries. New technologies are advancing at a pace that requires employers to continuously retrain their workforce to stay current. Organizations must become places of learning if they are to prepare workers for jobs of the future. Joe Schaefer is Chief Transformation Officer at Strategic Education.
