We are proud that in 2017, 35,000 Ohio businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $4.9 billion of economic activity for Ohio 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 Ohio. According to the National Skills Coalition, middle-skills jobs account for 55% of all jobs in Ohio but only 47% of state workers are trained to the middle-skill level.
We’re excited to partner with terrific libraries and community organizations throughout the state to help Ohio job seekers and small businesses learn digital skills.
