Tennessee Department of Human Resources recently announced that all fulltime, executive branch employees will have access to LinkedIn Learning, an on-demand learning solution with more than 8000 educational courses on the professional LinkedIn social platform.
The State of TN LinkedIn Learning licenses were acquired through CARES Act funding for one year (December 2020 to December 2021) with an option for renewal. The new virtual learning platform for employees comes after more than nine months of the suspension of in-person trainings amid the COVID-19 pandemic, during which thousands of state employees have been working from home where possible.
Employees are not required to create or connect a LinkedIn account in order to enjoy the platform; however, there are benefits to doing so. With more than 450 million member profiles and billions of engagements, LinkedIn Learning can customize learning channels based on how jobs, industries, organizations, and skills evolve over time by taking the guesswork out of learning.
LinkedIn Learning boasts world-class content, data-driven personalization, and convenience for employees to take advantage of hard and soft skills for professional development. Tennessee employees will have access to an internal website here for tips, FAQs, and tech-support contacts.
