Build your hybrid workplace skills with these opportunities

There’s no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the way we work. In the past year, many OP staff worked remotely for the first time ever. And although many of us won’t be returning to the office until early next year, we’re all likely to have more digital professional experiences than ever before. UCOP Learning and Development offers many resources to help you succeed in a hybrid work environment.
