The Office of Human Resources has upgraded your Lynda.com account to LinkedIn Learning — offering a personalized learning experience designed to help you achieve your goals through online learning on demand.
What is Linkedin Learning?
LinkedIn Learning is a leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills on the job, when you need it. Through a subscription with the Office of Human Resources, UN Secretariat staff members have access to the LinkedIn Learning video library of engaging, top-quality tutorials taught by recognized industry experts. Whether it's through full courses or bite-sized videos, you'll be able to learn something new, strengthen your skills, solve a problem - and apply it to your job.
Curated by the Office of Human Resources, these learning resources support UN staff in enhancing their skills, knowledge and competencies so they are better equipped to deliver on the Organization’s mandates.
