WorldatWork’s Reaction to the Coronavirus

We at WorldatWork understand how concern over the coronavirus has impacted many in our Partner Network community. Our success is dependent upon your success, and we are in this together. As a response to the current crisis, we have created a special limited time revenue share program as an option to minimize risk to your operations while providing additional service to your members. Here’s how it works:

  • For current classes, we are providing the opportunity of changing the in-person class to e-Learning. By choosing this option, WorldatWork will pay a 20% revenue share back to your Partner Network.
  • For future classes, we are offering a bundle promotion for both registration and membership. If you decide to change your in-person class to e-Learning, we will drop the registration fee to $1,285 and lower the membership fee to $295 for a package deal of $1,580. This will also be eligible for the 20% revenue share back to your Partner Network.
    • Non-WorldatWork members must purchase both registration and membership to receive the special price.
    • Registrants who are already WorldatWork members will receive the $1,285 registration price; your association will also be eligible for the 20% revenue share.

We will be offering this special promotion through June 30, 2020. If you are interested, please contact me and I will be happy to assist you.
