We are proud that in 2018, 27,00 Michigan businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $6.41 billion of economic activity for Michigan organizations (source). And we know that for many small businesses, learning how to harness the Internet can help them grow their business.
We also recognize the importance of digital skills when searching for a job in Michigan. According to the National Skills Coalition, only 47% of state workers are trained to the middle-skill level.
We’re excited to partner with libraries and community organizations throughout the state to further this commitment by helping Michigan job seekers and small businesses access digital skills training.
