The capacity to learn is a gift. The ability to learn is a skill. The willingness to learn is a choice. - Brian Herbert
At Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, we want to give an advantage to employees who make the choice to learn. Hundreds of them, actually. Our Enterprise Learning and Development team has curated more than 400 Business & Professional Development and 600 IT Skills online courses that are free and available to every single one of our employees to use and advance their careers … if they so choose!
The Enterprise Learning Hub, our learning and development website, offers a large catalogue of courses unique to our company’s systems and technology, such as customer service protocols and benefits. But it also offers career and professional development courses that you can use at Arkansas Blue Cross, in your personal life and beyond. Want to learn to use Oracle? We’ve got the hookup. Need a management refresher on how to have difficult conversations? Have that, too. Curious about Photoshop? Be ready to share edited images in no time.
Members can easily search the catalogue by topic to find courses they’re interested in. Other course categories include:
- Human Resource Development
- Management Essentials
- Project Management & Business Analysis
- Database Concepts
Some of the online content is developed by our very own learning and development experts, while others are created by Skillsoft, an innovative and widely-respected leader in eLearning. All courses can be accessed outside the office, so employees can work at their own pace and in their favorite spaces.
The learning and development team is always looking to add new courses, including those requested by employees. In addition to the online courses, the hub grants access to Skillsoft’s Books 24x7®, a virtual, on-demand library that provides thousands of books, summaries and reports related to business, technical and engineering content. The hub’s writing center allows employees to review best practices, seek feedback and sign up for daily tips, as well.
The opportunities are endless. While completing the courses is no guarantee for a career change, they sure don’t hurt. And for the self-starters and life learners, the hub is often a reward in and of itself.
