The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the use of digital tools as businesses extend remote working or increase safety in physical workspaces. This means that training and upskilling in these technologies are critical to the current and future success of the economy and country.

Responding to this reality are Recover Stronger Founding Coalition members Autodesk, Microsoft, Postmates, Salesforce, and Workday who have partnered to co-sign a letter that urges Congress to include support for workforce development, including digital skills, in any forthcoming COVID-related relief legislation. Autodesk detailed their support for this effort in an article on adsknews.autodesk.com— Autodesk and Tech Leaders Push Workforce Development in Next COVID-19 Relief Legislation.

An equitable economic recovery will not be possible without people at the center of our recovery strategy. JFF is proud to partner with pioneering companies like these who set a bold vision to put people first as we all work to Recover Stronger.
