Let’s talk about all things cor­po­rate train­ing, and see why tech­ni­cal upskilling and reskilling for your employ­ees can be so valuable.
Momen­tum part­ners with busi­ness­es to iden­ti­fy, cul­ti­vate and train tech tal­ent, spe­cial­iz­ing in tal­ent from under­rep­re­sent­ed pop­u­la­tions. Our goal is to cre­ate an always-learn­ing cul­ture that will allow your busi­ness to adapt to the con­stant­ly evolv­ing world of technology.

Why is Cor­po­rate Train­ing Important?

As com­pa­nies around the world are under­go­ing dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tions, the need for tech tal­ent is greater today than ever before. The prob­lem: hir­ing demand is out­pac­ing the avail­abil­i­ty of tal­ent. Tech­nol­o­gy is trans­form­ing faster than com­pa­nies are able to adapt. In the US, this tech tal­ent short­age could cause a loss of up to $162 bil­lion in rev­enue in the tech indus­try alone.
Upskilling your cur­rent team, and train­ing employ­ees to move into tech roles from oth­er parts of your com­pa­ny, is an ide­al solu­tion to this short­age. Inter­nal train­ing reduces new tal­ent acqui­si­tion costs, increas­es employ­ee reten­tion, and reduces risk asso­ci­at­ed with new hires. At the same time, you will be cre­at­ing a tech­no­log­i­cal­ly equipped work­force. Many employ­ees inter­nal to your orga­ni­za­tion pos­sess the soft and hard skills nec­es­sary for high­er lev­el or tech posi­tions, but lack the train­ing. Through upskilling with a tech­ni­cal train­ing course, these loy­al employ­ees can begin to climb the ranks.
Maybe your aims are to diver­si­fy your junior and senior lev­els — cor­po­rate train­ing can help change the fab­ric of an orga­ni­za­tion in mean­ing­ful ways. The skills gap has two major quan­ti­ta­tive impacts: com­pa­nies can’t achieve growth pro­jec­tions with­out skilled labor, and unskilled labor can not get jobs. By upskilling peo­ple from under­rep­re­sent­ed pop­u­la­tions or with non­tra­di­tion­al edu­ca­tion­al back­grounds, we are able to mine tal­ent that already has indus­try exper­tise and skills like com­pa­ny loy­al­ty and com­mit­ment to close the skills gap.

Who We Train

Momen­tum trains new and exist­ing tal­ent — and both pro­vide unique val­ue. Com­pa­nies can spon­sor par­tic­i­pants in Momentum’s pub­lic full stack engi­neer­ing cours­es to build a new pipeline of tal­ent with prac­ti­cal projects focus in your tech envi­ron­ment for increased job-readi­ness and reduced employ­ee onboard­ing cost. Cur­rent employ­ees from all areas of your com­pa­ny are also a pow­er­ful asset in your tal­ent arse­nal: they have proven team­work, orga­ni­za­tion­al skills, curios­i­ty, and dri­ve to learn and con­tribute, and they know your busi­ness and your indus­try. By upskilling a team of cur­rent employ­ees through a Momen­tum tech­ni­cal train­ing course, your busi­ness can build its base of tech­no-func­tion­al peo­ple — peo­ple who know your busi­ness and your tech stack — and that’s valu­able to both your com­pa­ny and your employ­ees. Momen­tum upskills entry lev­el employ­ees from cus­tomer ser­vice and oth­er front line roles into tech, and they upskill tech employ­ees to high­er lev­els in the ranks: pro­gram­mers to team leads, team leads to man­agers — spe­cial­iz­ing in under­rep­re­sent­ed groups to advance equi­ty through­out your com­pa­ny with mea­sur­able impact. Whether your goal is to build loy­al­ty, diver­si­fy the ranks, or cre­ate a learn­ing envi­ron­ment, upskilling pro­vides an oppor­tu­ni­ty for hard-work­ing employ­ees to move up the lad­der no mat­ter their start­ing point.
