Workforce Transformation services will include:
Talent Assessment & Workforce Planning: Revature’s aptitude assessment capabilities allow organizations to understand the topology of employee skill sets and map them against strategic objectives. Reskilling and Upskilling services are then applied to close the gaps that could ultimately slow innovation and productivity.
Reskilling: based on Revature’s core foundational software engineering curriculum – Reskilling programs will allow non-technical team members to acquire programming skills and perform project-based work as part of agile teams.
Upskilling: as companies continue to invest and implement new products across their tech stack, the demand for product specialists has increased exponentially. Revature will offer market-leading training programs to experienced staff – with a customized curriculum and timeline based on client needs. Upskilling can also be easily integrated into furlough programs as a strategy for retaining valuable members of the technology workforce.
“Revature is answering an urgent, nationwide call to invest in American workers and provide them the critical tech skills required for future employment and success,” said Ashwin Bharath, CEO of Revature. “For many enterprises, the idea of reskilling their workforce is conceptual – we recognize the urgent need to roll up our sleeves and deploy training programs that will have an immediate impact on business outcomes. Our commitment extends far beyond a short-term plan as we are proudly committed to training one million programmers within the next ten years.”
