Westaff is partnering with online learning and skills training leader Penn Foster to launch Better WorkLife Academy, making a wide array of free career-focused courses available to its associates. The new initiative was announced by Joanie Courtney, President, Professional Division, EmployBridge.

“We are making a significant investment to underwrite the cost of these courses for our associates for two reasons,” said Courtney. “One is specific to our company: to reinforce our goal to help those who work for and with us to improve their skills, earn higher pay and have better career opportunities to improve their lives. The second reason is aspirational for our country: to partner with a prominent force in the education community to proactively attack the skills gap that continues to hinder the economic recovery.”

Penn Foster, a leading provider of skills development training and credentials for today’s frontline workforce, delivers its courses in a self-paced, competency-based model wrapped by comprehensive academic, professional and personal support and coaching.

The Penn Foster courses, to be offered to associates of most EmployBridge brands in the newly created Better WorkLife Academy, include a mix of administrative, manufacturing and technical offerings. Each course was selected due to relevance in increasing an individual’s pay and improving his or her future job prospects and to help meet the skills needs of today’s most in-demand jobs. 

“We’ve identified the industries that have the highest demand for skilled individuals, and we’ve worked with Penn Foster to develop a course list to best fit that demand,” said Brian Devine, Senior Vice President, EmployBridge. “Associates who step forward to take advantage of these courses will not only be increasing their skills in a particular area, they will be revealing focus, discipline and a dedication to self-improvement.”

“Our flexible course options enable partners to create a curriculum offering that meets their specific upskilling needs,” said Frank Britt, CEO, Penn Foster. “We’re very excited to be supporting EmployBridge, a premier brand in the staffing industry, as they begin to roll out this timely initiative.”

Could not have had a better experience dealing with Crystal and Mrs. Cindy. Being a stay at home mom for 7 years, getting back into the workforce was a challenge. They both went above and beyound to help me! Crystal kept me informed about everything I needed to do and the opportunities West Staff has to offer

Just wanted to take the time and congratulate a company who strives to their full potential with outgoing, hard working employees. I had the pleasure of experiencing this at first hand while going through a hiring process with the agency. I would like to thank Massiel for all her hard work in helping me find a job. The hiring process is which she provided was outstanding and she made sure to explain every detail and process step by step. Thanks to her help I was able to obtain a job that aligned to my qualifications. I would highly recommend Massiel to anyone looking for a job and in which she will strive to her full potential to help you in any way she can
