Coursera, a leader in online education and learning,has recently entered into a global partnership with AXA, the worldwide leader in insurance.
AXA will adopt Coursera’s enterprise platform, Coursera for Business—which enables employers to draw on high-quality online learning content created by 150 top universities—to address their rapidly-evolving workforce development needs.
As part of the strategic upskilling effort, Coursera will work with AXA to curate relevant content and integrate Coursera courses into existing learning paths with a goal to further equip the global workforce with the knowledge and in demand skills required to succeed in tomorrow’s workplace and economy.
“We’re honored to partner with a forward-thinking organization like AXA as they innovate on their Learning and Development model and prepare their employees for the jobs of the future”.
The partnership is a natural next step and expansion after a successful 3-month pilot, during which more than 1000 AXA employees registered as learners, with as many as 50% receiving certifications.
It will provide all AXA employees in 64 countries with free, easy, and on-demand access to more than 300 top-quality courses in a variety of topics such as data science, digital marketing, and leadership. Upon completion, AXA employees will receive sharable electronic Course Certificates, which highlight the new skills they have gained to advance their careers. AXA will also explore creating custom content on the Coursera platform.
“We are delighted to partner with Coursera as we are setting the pace for an ambitious self-learning organization within AXA,” said Rino Piazzolla, AXA Group Head of Human Resources. “Our industry is undergoing rapid transformation, and providing direct access to the best academic knowledge will help our employees to drive this transformation and give them an opportunity to manage their learning curve and enhance their skill sets. Coursera will complement our broader learning offer by bringing the campus to our workplace.”
