PayPal invests in workplace skills development with rollout of Udemy for Business

Rapid change is the new normal in today’s fast-paced workplace. The work of the future requires a commitment to developing the skills of our workforce today. That’s why PayPal Learning is taking a big step in investing more in the skills training and development of its employees with the rollout of a new learning platform, Udemy for Business.

Once live, 5,000 PayPal employees in offices around the world will gain access to Udemy for Business’ high-quality content library of over 1,600 courses on a variety of topics ranging from programming and leadership skills to meditation and stress management. Courses are taught by world class experts such as Guy Kawasaki and Rob Percival, and well known educational institutions including the Drucker Institute and Wiley and Sons. Courses are continually added to the content library each month, ensuring that PayPal employees have access to the most sought-after skills.

Courses are available on-demand and PayPal employees can take them at their own pace across web and mobile devices – providing the flexibility for employees to learn what they want, at the precise moment of need. A dynamic online course experience allows students to speed up the pace of instruction, bookmark important tutorials, or save the lecture for future reference.

In addition to the curated library of courses, PayPal sees great opportunity to host its own training materials on its Udemy for Business learning platform. “We are constantly seeking new ways to empower PayPal employees to succeed and thrive. The flexibility of Udemy for Business allows us to put continuous learning right at the fingertips of our employees in a modern, meaningful way,” said PayPal Chief Learning Officer, Derek Hann.

“PayPal is on the cutting edge of everything they do and their approach to learning and development is no exception. We are thrilled to collaborate with PayPal as they continue to invest in developing their employees by arming them with the most advanced skills,” added Udemy for Business General Manager, Darren Shimkus.

PayPal will introduce employees to these new learning resources at their upcoming Learning Fair which builds excitement around their employee learning initiatives.
