French tech major Capgemini has announced a global partnership with Coursera to expand its libraries of high-quality learning to all of its employees across the world. The company roped in online learning platform Coursera to make available an additional of over 4,000 courses which are taught by the world's top university and industry educators across business, technology, data science, and personal development on NEXT (Capgemini's new internal digital learning hub).
The official notice reads, "The learning hub gathers online courses that are updated continuously, all in one place, allowing everyone to build their own personal development path. Keeping employees upskilled and supported, as well as enabling lifelong learning and personal growth is key for employee engagement and as such a top priority for Capgemini.
