How does Google nurture a culture where its people are always learning? At Google, 80% of all tracked trainings are run through an employee-to-employee network called “g2g” (Googler-to-Googler). Their Googler-to-Googler program makes this possible by offering Googlers the chance to share their passions and expertise with other Googlers. Many of the most popular classes as part of this program focus on general professional skills, like negotiations and leadership, and role-related skills, like sales training and Python coding. It’s also helped upskill huge numbers of employees around new opportunities.
