    Nvidia may be best known for its popular graphics chips that power video games, but it’s not all fun and leisure at the Silicon Valley giant. The company is a big proponent of teaching its employees to be lifelong learners and in 2019 debuted its Learning & Development Expo, where workers could brush up on cutting-edge technology like artificial intelligence. The computer chipmaker’s online training platform also offers courses in technology, management, and other job-related subjects, enabling employees to develop skills and receive feedback. The goal is to create a workforce of happy, productive employees who feel as if their careers are valued by management. One worker boasts: “Nvidia is the most agile and humble company I know or have worked for.”
