Navigating Through the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 video was exactly what we needed– a way to track our policy pledge, share information about virus transmission and safety, and a knowledge quiz to make sure the information was understood. Skillsoft did a great job providing the content we needed in a timely fashion for us to get our employees trained on time.
