Let’s dive into the ins and outs of upskilling, and what it means to cul­ti­vate talent.
So your busi­ness has iden­ti­fied tal­ent for its next cor­po­rate train­ing? To ensure suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of any train­ing pro­gram, employ­ees should be pre­pared for pro­gram demands and expec­ta­tions. This is an impor­tant step that is often over­looked with­in an upskilling strat­e­gy, how­ev­er, in prac­tice there are a num­ber of holes that must be filled between iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and training.
Momen­tum is part­ner­ing with com­pa­nies to meet their dig­i­tal demands and build tech­ni­cal work­forces. We pro­vide ser­vices and guid­ance at each step through­out the upskilling process — includ­ing help­ing busi­ness­es cul­ti­vate tal­ent. Whether your busi­ness is look­ing to improve diver­si­ty and inclu­sion, or is focused on reten­tion and suc­ces­sion plan­ning, ensur­ing your team mem­bers are pre­pared pri­or to train­ing, will ensure over­all success.
Across all forms of high­er edu­ca­tion, under­per­for­mance is a prin­ci­pal fac­tor affect­ing suc­cess. In the Unit­ed States, the over­all dropout rate for under­grad­u­ate col­lege stu­dents is 40%. Top rea­sons for dropout include aca­d­e­m­ic dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion and lack of sup­port. Many stu­dents are under­pre­pared for the lev­el of rig­or that high­er edu­ca­tion entails. The same goes for cod­ing boot­camps and oth­er pro­fes­sion­al pro­grams. Time must be tak­en to accli­mate and pre­pare indi­vid­u­als before they take on train­ing. This is where learn­ing how to cul­ti­vate tal­ent comes into the picture.

Pre­pare for Train­ing Pro­gram Expectations

Can­di­dates for upskilling who are in entry-lev­el roles may or may not have a tra­di­tion­al edu­ca­tion back­ground. Momen­tum pro­grams are demand­ing, and stu­dents are expect­ed to work both in teams and inde­pen­dent­ly. So, know­ing how to bal­ance cur­rent respon­si­bil­i­ties at work with train­ing com­mit­ments is an impor­tant skill to devel­op. Momen­tum can pro­vide stu­dents with cus­tomized, repeat­able mate­ri­als pri­or to the pro­gram start. These mate­ri­als will pre­pare stu­dents for class­room expec­ta­tions that they may not have prac­tice with, like being com­fort­able ask­ing ques­tions in class.

Teach Tech Team Man­agers to Tai­lor Schedules

Tal­ent Cul­ti­va­tion not only refers to prepa­ra­tion of the learn­er, but also tech team man­age­ment. Through­out the dura­tion of the pro­gram, employ­ees may have cer­tain work respon­si­bil­i­ties to tend to while bal­anc­ing train­ing. Man­agers should be pre­pared to tai­lor work sched­ules in accor­dance with the time com­mit­ment of the train­ing pro­gram. Momen­tum can work with tech team lead­ers to make these adjustments.

Fit Cur­ricu­lum to Meet Tech­ni­cal Needs

A company’s train­ing cur­ricu­lum should be fit­ted to direct­ly meet the needs of the orga­ni­za­tion. Tak­ing the time to eval­u­ate IT needs ahead of time and iden­ti­fy­ing the skills employ­ees should be walk­ing away with will serve valu­able in the long run. By part­ner­ing with Momen­tum to cul­ti­vate tal­ent pri­or to train­ing, we can ensure your cor­po­rate train­ing will be worth­while and make real progress in your dig­i­tal transformation.
