Project Pivot For Businesses
Project PIVOT is a unique, collaborative program created and launched by Wilkes Barre Connect – the entrepreneurial and economic development arm of the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce – that aims to provide accelerated workforce training and upskill opportunities for workers in Luzerne County.
Through this program, your employees will have FREE access to 17,000+ online LinkedIn Learning courses designed to give them the skills they need to grow within your company. You will have the opportunity to work directly with our Project PIVOT team and the team at LinkedIn Learning, to develop a specially-tailored pathway that is specific to your company and employee needs, to help you take your current workforce to the next level in their skillset, and to address any educational gaps your team may be experiencing.
Throughout the course of this pilot program, participants are introduced to several partnering organizations with specialized services and resources to aid in workforce development, training, upskilling, and education for your team.
This project is made possible by a U.S. Economic Development Administration CARES Act investment.
