Google is committed to helping Tennesseans thrive in the digital economy. We’re proud of our relationship with the state. Last February, we announced that we are opening a data center in Clarksville. In 2017, Google search and tools helped Tennessee businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits generate $2 billion in economic activity.
Now, Grow with Google is excited to support Tennessee small businesses and jobseekers by offering in-person digital skills workshops and coaching. We know that middle-skill jobs account for 58 percent of Tennessee’s labor market, but only 45 percent of the state’s workers are trained to the middle-skill level (source). We want to do our part to help equip people with the digital skills they need to compete in the economy of today and tomorrow. We’re also providing train-the-trainer resources to local leaders -- including library, nonprofit and education professionals -- who can bring these free resources and tools to their community.
