Because of the pandemic, many personal trainers, coaches, and training institutions have been forced to start offering online classes to their students. For minority groups, getting decent training on technology can be a challenge. Their positions at work could also be at risk because many employers want technologically-savvy employees.
It just so happens that this is a goal Nilda Thomas has in mind: to help minorities gain technology skills that they can use to either land better employment opportunities or stay competitive in their current jobs. She also educates her clients on soft skills so they can learn how to collaborate with others and experience success in the workplace.
In this week’s episode of the Innovations and Breakthroughs Podcast, Rich Goldstein is joined by Nilda Thomas, the Founder and CEO of Workforce eTraining Solutions, to find out how Nilda helps minorities gain access to technology training. Nilda explains why she started the company, her core messaging, and the common challenges associated with online training.
