Digital Resources To Help You & Your Business Grow
Since the #StayHome reality, the internet has become exponentially more vital to doing our jobs, continuing our children's education, and staying connected. At this point, the web provides more opportunities than ever before and at the same time, it's completely transforming both the way we work and the way we learn.

In light of these recent developments, Grow with Google, has gathered some tools and resources to help employees, educators, and students who have started working from home stay productive.

About Grow With Google

Grow with Google is a platform that provides free training, tools & in-person coaching, designed to help people find a job, advance their career, or grow their business. Back in 2015, Google launched Grow with Google, aiming to train one million Europeans by the end of 2016, the demand, however, was huge. As of 2019, Grow with Google had reached job seekers, business owners, teachers, developers, and students in more than 80 countries around the world and had trained five million people in Europe and five million people across Africa and the Middle East.

Since 2016, 45% of Digital Workshop trainees reported they'd found a job, accelerated their career, or grown their business by hiring new staff or increasing revenue. In Europe, 48% of the people who trained were women; a quarter was unemployed, and 90% of business trainees came from small businesses. This scale of impact has led to recognition and awards from the European Commission. It has made it strikingly evident that anyone with internet access and the right set of skills can create a global business, start a new career, and become successful in every way.
