New Trailhead Content Empowers Businesses and Trailblazers To Navigate the Future of Work
We’ve released new Trailhead learning content to guide businesses and Trailblazers as they navigate the digital imperative of work and reskill for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Everyone can learn new skills to go digital fast.
Across the world, we’re all united as we navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. At Salesforce, we’re focused on guiding all of our Trailblazers through the journey of reopening safely, reimagining and rebuilding the way they work, and reskilling.
Dynamic weekly content releases and accessible learning on Trailhead, our free online learning platform, have never been more important than during this time of great change.
Today, we’re expanding our robust Trailhead library of more than 800 badges with brand new modules to empower both businesses and Trailblazers alike with learning across every stage of this crisis.
Guiding companies to a safe reopening
With the launch of Work.com, a suite of apps, expertise, and services to manage the crisis today, and thrive tomorrow, Salesforce is helping businesses and communities reopen as quickly as possible, while helping to keep employees, customers, partners, and citizens safe and informed.
We’re so proud that Trailhead is a part of Work.com. And now, we’re expanding our support with the launch of the Reopen Safely with Work.com trail to guide companies as they move toward the reopen phase.
The new trail contains modules on:
- Work.com Basics: Learn about the Work.com suite of apps, expertise, and services.
- Workplace Reopening Strategies: Learn a basic framework and best practices for reopening your workplace, including souring PPE to protect your team.
The safety and success of our Trailblazers is our number one priority. With this new trail, we’re giving companies the tools needed to reopen their business and to utilize the suite of Work.com products to do so efficiently and safely.
We’ve also added a contact tracing career page to Trailhead with a curated trailmix to empower job seekers to skill up for the in-demand contact tracing role that companies are looking for.
Helping companies through their digital transformation
At the onset of COVID-19, almost overnight, businesses were forced to close their doors and move to remote work. For many companies, this massive change has accelerated the digital transformation imperative.
Leaders know that they must completely pivot their way of working to successfully operate in the digital economy. Trailhead has always been focused on empowering anyone to learn the marketable skills needed to help their company on their digital transformation.
Now, we’re releasing a new trail, Go Digital Fast with the Salesforce Customer 360, to help businesses skill up on Salesforce products to quicken their move to digital. With this new trail, companies can discover how Salesforce can help them go digital fast, with bots, automation, CRM, and more. Including modules on:
- Build a Simple Flow: Use Flow Builder to capture and update contact information with a flow.
- Digital Transformation: Explore trends causing companies to transform their products and customer relationships.
- Salesforce Platform Basics: Get introduced to the platform, navigate use cases, and build custom functionality.
As companies continue to reimagine the way that we work, Trailhead will be here to provide the tools needed to be successful. We’ve also launched the Develop a Virtual Strategy for Your Business trail to ensure companies can thrive, even in a virtual world. With the new trail, companies will be empowered to create a strategy for virtual meetings, collaboration, and more.
Enabling Trailblazers to reskill for the digital imperative
Reskilling has never been more important. With demands on businesses shifting as they accelerate their digital transformation, employees and job seekers with digital skills are highly sought after. Trailhead’s online and accessible learning platform is a game-changer for anyone looking to reskill at their current company or completely transform their career.
Trailhead has made learning marketable skills, either from your desktop or mobile device with Trailhead GO, without the barriers of cost or location, accessible for everyone. From badges on building an AI bot to building a mobile app, learners have access to skills that businesses need right now.
Our new Skill Up for the Future with Trailhead trail empowers new learners to start their journey on Trailhead and acts as a guide throughout. The new trail includes badges on:
- Build an App to Track Your Trailblazer Journey: Get hands-on with your free Salesforce Developer environment with the Trailhead Playground to build an app to store study materials and notes as you explore the Salesforce ecosystem.
- Career Development Planning: Build a career plan and learn how to land a job in the Salesforce ecosystem.
- Mentoring with a Purpose: Coming soon! A new module on building meaningful mentoring relationships that gets you closer to your career goals.
Continuous learning isn’t just vital for employees and jobseekers — it’s a must for leaders at every company. Leading during crisis is a responsibility that many are struggling with. We’ve just released the Lead During Challenging Times trail to guide leaders during this new normal with actionable strategies.
New skills for the new normal of work
As we move toward a new normal, we’ll continue to release Trailhead content on the skills you and your company need to be successful. Be sure to tune into Trailhead LIVE as our experts bring this learning to life.
We’ve also packaged up all of this new learning into a trailmix. Bonus! Do the New Skills for the Future of Work quest by completing this trailmix by July 31, 2020 and earn an exclusive community badge.
We’re all navigating great uncertainty, and I’m so thankful that we have the Trailblazer Community to work through the change, together.
