STATES CHRONICLE – Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced a series of massive efforts to increase the value of the technical labor market. The company is going to open a training program called Grow with Google. Job seekers will be able to learn how to earn a reputed position. On top of that, the tech giant will donate $1 billion over five years as investments in nonprofit organizations that focus on professional training and education.
Grow with Google Program Will Train Job Seekers in App Development, Information Technology Support, and Many Others
Grow With Google will be an online hub where people can unlock training for technical jobs. They will even receive professional certificates to attest their new skills. The platform will be about businesses as well. Small companies will get to learn how to streamline their digital services.
Sundar Pichai claimed that the goal of this initiative is to reinforce the technical labor market. Anyone with an internet collection will be eligible for proficient lessons in technology. These courses will be tailored especially for those who seek employment in areas such as app development or information technology support.
“The nature of work is fundamentally changing, and that is shifting the link between education, training and opportunity.”
The charitable department known as Google.org will also follow a similar educational direction. Google will release funds valued at a total of $1 billion over the next five years. This financial support will head towards various nonprofit organizations such as Goodwill Industries.
On top of that, company employees will take part in these job training programs as well. They will volunteer at these NGOs for one million hours in guiding suitable candidates for the job market.
Google CEO Hinted that the Company Will Leave Silicon Valley for Pittsburgh
These numerous efforts where Google uses all its resources to improve the American job market come at a time when Silicon Valley is under attack. The tech hub received many criticizes for operating independently from the worlds of business and society. Some Silicon Valley parties along with Google are suspects in the Russian operation that influenced the 2016 presidential election.
Therefore, Sundar Pichai announced these latest projects far away from the Silicon Valley headquarters. The event took place at Google’s office in Pittsburgh. The CEO talked about this city as the next high-tech center for AI and robotics development.
