Microsoft has announced a new partnership with the Markle foundation in an effort to help American workers gain digital skills in response to the evolving labor market. Specifically, Microsoft is boosting Markle's Skillful initiative with a $25.8 million investment over the three-year partnetship.
The hope is, Microsoft explains, that proper training can help to fill the estimated 6 million jobs that go unfilled because of a shortage of skilled workers. In addition to monetary support from Microsoft, Markle's Skillful initiative is also using LinkedIn's training finder to help workers obtain the training they need.
