This fast-growing company and Cegos share the same learning & development conviction. Digital transformation and technological breakthroughs are revolutionising jobs and skills. The challenge is even more significant with the global health crisis we are facing, and which will have huge consequences on employment and organizations: millions of employees around the world will have to upgrade or refresh their skills through learning.
