500X5 to UpSkill ATX

Austin Skyline

We are calling on 500 employers to upskill 5 employees by 2021 to o help fill the skill gap and Grow Our Own in the Austin Metro Area.

Upskilling is assisting incumbent workers in acquiring skills to advance into middle-skill jobs, particularly those in high demand for their employers.

Upskilling looks like:

  • providing your employees with tuition assistance
  • offering onsite training to build their skill sets and their value to your company
  • sponsoring an apprenticeship that allows employees to earn while they learn and skill up for your high-demand roles.

To learn more about upskilling, check out our toolkit. Click here to download a copy (pdf).
