Undelucram.ro, the largest online employee community in Romania and a leading player in Central and Eastern Europe, has forged an alliance partnership with LinkedIn, the world’s leading professional network. This collaboration empowers companies to seamlessly access and purchase LinkedIn Learning’s extensive library of skill-building courses through Undelucram.ro.
Register for the Top Angajatori Undelucram.ro conference on Thursday, February 15, which will have keynote speakers Weronika Osko, Sales Manager Talent & Learning, Central Eastern Europe at LinkedIn and Michael Kilty, Senior Learning & Development Consultant, Central Eastern Europe at LinkedIn. They will be joined as speakers by other dozens of HR specialists and managers.
This strategic alliance aligns with Undelucram’s mission to address the evolving needs of both employers and employees. Companies can now equip their workforces with the latest skills and knowledge, while employees gain access to world-class learning opportunities to advance their careers.
LinkedIn Learning is an intelligent skill-building platform that empowers employees to develop the right skills to advance their careers, and helps organizations grow and retain talent. The platform includes over 20,000 courses taught by expert instructors across business, technical and creative categories.
The Future of Work Demands Upskilling and Reskilling:
In today’s dynamic and rapidly evolving business landscape, upskilling and reskilling have emerged as top priorities for organizations worldwide. According to LinkedIn’s 2023 Workplace report, the skills needed for any given job are changing more rapidly than ever before. LinkedIn data shows that since 2015, skill sets for jobs have changed by around 25%. By 2027, this number is expected to double. And 89% of L&D professionals agree that proactively building skills will help their organizations navigate the future of work.
Furthermore, LinkedIn Learning stands as the top choice for 80 of the Fortune 100 companies. Their decision is grounded in the platform’s dedicated commitment to providing a personalized learning experience tailored to individual needs, ensuring that employees gain immediately applicable, sought-after skills right from the start.
Some of the most 10 popular courses on LinkedIn Learning are: Goal Setting: Objectives and Key Results (OKRs), Excel Essential Training (Office 365/Microsoft 365), Interpersonal Communication, Cultivating a Growth Mindset, Using Questions to Foster Critical Thinking and Curiosity, Essentials of Team Collaboration, Unconscious Bias, Communicating with Confidence, Speaking Confidently and Effectively or Learning the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).
„From the outset, our mission has been to foster transparency in the labor market. As we gained access to more insights from both employees and employers, we expanded our vision to encompass becoming an HR expert and providing services and products that empower companies and employees alike. We understand the profound impact of skills beyond what’s written on a CV, and this partnership with LinkedIn aligns perfectly with our goal to become even more relevant to our B2B and B2C clients. Our initiative also addresses a significant gap in the Romanian workforce, where only 8% of employees cite professional development prospects as a reason for staying at their current job. This factor ranks seventh among the top reasons Romanians choose a particular job, trailing salary package, job stability, and team dynamics. We firmly believe in the vast potential for growth in terms of learning prospects and career advancement, and we are confident that this partnership will yield substantial benefits for both employees and companies, ultimately leading to a more skilled and engaged workforce” stated Costin Tudor, CEO Undelucram.ro.
Moreover, companies that actively nurture the professional development of their employees witness a notable surge in internal mobility. According to LinkedIn data compiled between July 2022 and July 2023, companies whose employees exhibited outstanding skill development in the preceding 12 months boast a 15% higher internal mobility rate compared to those where employees did not excel.
In the current landscape, businesses find themselves in urgent need of new skills, demanding a swift evolution of their employees through upskilling and internal mobility. While talent acquisition was once a primary strategy to acquire new skills, this approach falls short in today’s dynamic labor market and business landscape. Companies must now adopt a holistic approach that fosters internal talent development and skill enhancement to remain competitive and thrive.
“Businesses need to acquire new skills at an unprecedented rate, which means they have to help their employees evolve through upskilling and internal mobility. Whereas in the past, companies relied heavily on talent acquisition as the primary means to obtain new skills, this strategy is no longer sufficient in today’s dynamic labor market and business landscape. We believe this partnership with Undelucram will lead to a significant increase of the skill level of employees”, stated Elena Semenova, Head of Central Eastern Europe, LinkedIn Talent Solutions.
The Undelucram.ro platform was launched in 2011 by the entrepreneur Costin Tudor and is the largest online employee community in Romania. Since 2019 the platform has expanded internationally, creating the regional network of employer branding and online recruitment platforms WhereWeWork.com, one of the largest in the CEE and MENA, with over 1.5 million employees regionally. The WhereWeWork.com network aims to make the labour market more transparent in the 14 countries in which it operates, providing information and tools for both employees and companies. The platform is based on machine learning algorithms and aggregated user data, matching the interests of candidates in the labor market with those of employers.
