Mercer Digital Will Curate edX Courses

Mercer, a leading technology consultant subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies, will curate catalogs of edX courses to prepare its workforce of 22,000 employees.

“Research shows that just 35% of employees’ skills today will be relevant in five years and current jobs will require new skillsets,” said Ilya Bonic, Senior Partner and President of Mercer’s Career business.

The initiative comes after an agreement between Mercer Digital and the edX organization, which was announced this week.  No further details were disclosed.
