Chicago February 21, 2017 - re:work training, a nonprofit that provides sales training and job placement, announced today that it will use LearnCore’s training and coaching platform to scale its impact. Beyond that, re:work will utilize pre-built training content provided by Jbarrows Consulting, owned and run by John Barrows.
