Security Bank inks deal with LinkedIn for continued on-the-go learning

Security Bank becomes the first local bank to partner with LinkedIn to provide employees with access to LinkedIn Learning, the networking site’s e-learning platform.

Security Bank Corporation has partnered with LinkedIn to provide the bank’s employees access to LinkedIn Learning (LiL), the networking site’s e-learning platform. Through this deal, Security Bank becomes the first Philippine bank to engage with the US-based professional networking company for their enterprise wide e-learning services.

Under the terms of the collaboration, Security Bank employees will have access to an extensive library of online courses to help them develop professionally, amidst the sudden shift to other working modalities as a result of the pandemic.

The bank’s internal training arm, SB Academy, rolled out an initial run participated by over 500 employees in April 2020. During the pilot run, the tool allowed the participants to choose from thousands of business, creative, and tech courses curated by industry experts and learn in-demand skills at their own pace and time.  Following the success of the pilot run, SB Academy pursued a deal with LiL.

“During these uncertain times, it pays to be both well-rounded and focused on developing specific areas of strength. LinkedIn Learning will enable us to achieve the bank’s goals and to empower Security Bankers to continuously succeed in their career,” says Nerissa Berba, SVP and head of Human Capital Management.

The collaboration between the two companies saw a unique approach adopted in curating courses for every user. Employees can use an assessment tool that allows LiL to provide customized learning pathways, which will result in employees seeing a more relevant and value-adding course library that is tailored to their specific job functions, and allowing them to discover new growth opportunities for their roles.

“LinkedIn is pleased to ink this deal with Security Bank Corporation, towards the professional development of their employees. As we see more business functions undergo change during this time, it is important for professionals to pick up new skills or brush up on their existing ones in order to adapt. This will help them stay relevant in their current role or be of use to them in future. LinkedIn is committed to providing tools and resources to support the professional community prepare for the workforce of the future,” said Frank Koo, Head of Asia, Talent and Learning Solutions.

This initiative supports Security Bank’s goal to further empower its employees despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic. Security Bank is scheduled to roll out LinkedIn Learning bankwide by January 2021.
