2020 has been a pivotal year and many aspects of our traditional working methods have changed. As we enter the unknown, learning and upskilling have become top priorities for employees and employers alike. To address this need, Microsoft and LinkedIn have jointly launched the Skills Initiative. This learning platform aims to help some 25 million job seekers worldwide to acquire new digital skills that will help them find roles in the post-COVID-19 economy.

The platform features free learning resources from LinkedIn Learning and Microsoft Learn. The content includes learning pathways tailor-made to suit the most in-demand jobs, identified via analysis of the latest data from LinkedIn. The Skills Initiative also offers technical training with discounts on Microsoft's industry-recognized certificates.

These resources are free to use globally and aim to provide opportunities for individuals to upskill and re-shift, and to develop talent across all levels.

In this webinar, we are delighted to have Ada Ng, Director, Corporate Affairs and Philanthropies at Microsoft, and Nathan Khan, Head of Partnerships (Talent & Learning Solutions) at LinkedIn Hong Kong, to share some of the latest learning resources and talent trends. They will also discuss the services they are currently providing to help companies and workers battle the impact of the pandemic.
