Net Atlantic Introduces New Employee Online Learning Day
Salem, MA – August 19, 2015 - Today Net Atlantic completed its first-ever Online Learning Day.
This special educational opportunity gave all Net Atlantic employees dedicated time during the workday to pursue an online course in the area of study of their choosing.
“We wanted to make full use of all the great MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and other available online resources, to help our employees grow their skill sets and learn more about subjects they’re interested in,” said Human Resources Manager Ruthie Larivee.
Classes of interest included computer programming, web development, HTML, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, finance and accounting, Internet of Things (IoT), copywriting, leadership, management, negotiation, and many more.
“We recognize that it’s difficult for employees to take a break from their day-to-day responsibilities for online learning,” Ruthie continued. “So we ‘officially’ carved out a block of time for them to do it. Because of the event’s success, we’re in the process of rolling out a program that will make it easy for employees to continue learning.”
Seven online resources were suggested to Net Atlantic staff members, so they could choose the best fit based on their interests and learning styles. They included: https://www.coursera.org, https://www.udemy.com/, https://www.khanacademy.org/, https://www.udacity.com , https://www.edx.org/ , http://ocw.mit.edu , http://www.ted.com
Operations Manager Barbara DiMambro welcomed the opportunity to incorporate some time for professional development into her workday.
“I told all my friends outside of work about our Online Learning Day, and they thought it was a fantastic idea,” she said. “Exploring new areas of education and learning new skills is so important, and I think it’s great that the company has made it a priority.”
In addition to Online Learning Day, Net Atlantic supports educational development with their annual scholarship program as well as several internshipsthat they offer to various college students during the school year. In recent years, the company has also supported various community STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) initiatives.
