Over the past month, Typsy usage has increased over 1,600 percent
Global hospitality learning platform Typsy launched a new plan to support the worldwide hospitality industry during the coronavirus pandemic. The Typsy COVID Support Plan offers free online access to its industry-leading platform and Netflix-style library of 650+ hospitality video lessons. The COVID Support Plan will be available for individuals, businesses, and schools until Sept. 30, 2020.
As venues across the world are being forced to downsize or close in response to the pandemic, businesses can use this support plan to stay engaged and connected with their workforce. Moreover, it will help members to freely develop their hospitality skills, empowering those who have been affected by COVID-19 to access online learning opportunities and re-enter the workforce with confidence.
Typsy CEO Jonathan Plowright describes the initiative as crucial. The negative impacts on hospitality and tourism are devastating, however, a stronger community is building. People are rallying to provide initiatives that give the industry the best chance at a strong rebound in the future. He assured to help not only their existing customers but many more people whose lives and businesses have been disrupted by the effects of COVID-19.
Clients have been impacted enormously both commercially and operationally, which has had a ripple effect on all suppliers. Whilst the revenue has taken a major hit, EHL has been backing as a partner. This puts the company in a fortunate position where it can invest in the platform during this difficult period.
Over the past month, Typsy usage has increased over 1,600% and it’s expected that up to one million new learners will join the platform to learn and earn micro-credentials over the next six months.
Typsy is backed by the world’s leading hotel school and Swiss-based education group Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne (EHL) and counts dozens of global groups, including Radisson, Delaware North, Wyndham, and Hyatt, as clients.
