A list of some of the top free learning resources for you and your team to improve your skill sets during the pandemic.
Though it doesn’t feel like it when you turn on the news, there are some silver linings to the Covid-19 pandemic. Lockdowns are creating cleaner air, people are coming together to support the elderly and their communities, and many are putting time towards self improvement.
Another great thing? Many business educational resources, classes, and events are now temporarily available online for free. This is a great opportunity to invest in gaining new skills, or if you’re leading a newly remote team, helping your employees with their own personal development while they work from home.
Here are some of the top free resources to check out, categorized by department and skill types:
