The training will focus on digital, data analytics, machine learning, and robotics.
Australian retail company Woolworths is planning to invest more than $38.59m (A$50m) over the next three years for upskilling, reskilling, and redeploying its team members to brace for technological changes, according to a press release.
The key technical focus areas for training will be in digital, data analytics, machine learning and robotics, with further investment planned for advanced customer service skills, team leadership and agile ways of working.
It will also underpin the launch of an online learning platform to offer training, apprenticeship and mentoring support to its team members across Australia. The fund is expected to support training for more than 60,000 employees.
Over the coming months, the fund will formalise partnerships with key learning institutions and other stakeholders. The knowledge will also be shared across retail and other service industries, aiming to help support economy-wide upskilling and training programs.
