Nexford for Organizations

Learn 2 Earn

Hire job-ready talent on Day 1.


There's little to love about your talent acquisition strategy

Hiring times are slow and the ramp-to-productivity takes even longer.

Nexford’s Learn 2 Earn program trains your future employees with the skills they need today to be “job ready” on day one.

How Learn 2 Earn works

Step 1: Assess needs

You identify the skills your company needs future employees to have.

Step 2: Select courses

Together, we select the courses (or combination of courses) that will prepare these future hires for the jobs you need to fill.

Step 3: Train talent

Nexford attracts, enrolls, and trains learners. You get extended time to evaluate learners, selecting the best-of-the-best for hire.

Step 4: Hire rockstars

New hires from the Learn 2 Earn program are job ready on Day 1.
