The sig­nif­i­cant role of upskilling in North Carolina

Whether they know it or not, near­ly every com­pa­ny today is a tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­ny. Many orga­ni­za­tions have train­ing pro­grams designed to intro­duce new skills to tech resources, but how many have cor­po­rate train­ing pro­grams robust enough to enable non-tech employ­ees to trans­fer their skills into junior soft­ware devel­op­er, sys­tems ana­lyst, user sup­port spe­cial­ist or qual­i­ty assur­ance roles? Orga­ni­za­tions must be will­ing to exper­i­ment with new tal­ent reten­tion and devel­op­ment mod­els, espe­cial­ly when it comes to fill­ing tech­ni­cal posi­tions. As the job mar­ket for soft­ware devel­op­ers con­tin­ues to grow much faster than oth­er job areas, more com­pa­nies are send­ing tal­ent­ed, busi­ness-savvy employ­ees to exter­nal train­ing pro­grams to fill tech­nol­o­gy posi­tions. Con­sid­er if you can invest and train employ­ees well-versed in your com­pa­ny and cul­ture from cus­tomer ser­vice, man­u­fac­tur­ing, human resources, and finance into tech tal­ent for your business.
