Why should you upskill your workforce?

Tech skills are in demand

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for software developers is expected to grow by 17%, “much faster than average” by 2024, which is about 200,000 more roles. Software developers are already expensive, and “harder than average to recruit," so more and more companies are thinking about re-training their own workforce. For example, AT&T is currently retraining 100,000 employees – could your company be next?

Tech skills are not just for software engineers. Other roles and jobs can benefit from coding skills such as product managers, designers, content marketers, and marketing analysts.

Retention

We all know that retaining good employees is valuable to the bottom line. Meghan Biro expands: "An employer who doesn’t focus on learning is going to lose out — in performance, engagement and retention. According to LinkedIn’s 2018 Workforce Learning Report, a whopping 93% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers."

What are Coding Bootcamps?

Coding bootcamps are intensive technology education providers which quickly and efficiently train people in the latest digital technologies. They range from 8 weeks to 3 years, and teach technical skills including software development, UX design, data science, cyber security, and more. Curriculums are highly iterative to ensure students are always learning the most up-to-date and important technologies and skills. 

As the industry grows, these bootcamps have identified a need for companies to provide in-house training for their employees. Many bootcamps now offer a range of customizable corporate training programs. In 2018, coding bootcamps trained 16,593 students in digital skills via 634 corporate training partners!

Ways To Partner with Bootcamps

Bootcamps offer a number of ways to upskill/reskill your employees:

  • On-site training
  • Online training
  • In-classroom training
  • Custom hackathons
  • Upskill current employees to keep them engaged and learning
  • Mentor or onboard new hires

Companies like Deloitte, Accenture, and Barclays are testing “intrapreneurship programs” where employees learn how to be innovators in their own companies. And General Electric recently launched a program to teach all new hires how to code.

What to look for in a Coding Bootcamp

There are a lot of options when it comes to choosing a corporate training provider for your employees. Consider this when selecting a bootcamp that fits for your team:

  • Instructors – who is teaching the class, what experience do they have, and does that fit your needs?
  • Convenience – do you need in-house training, or would you prefer your employees to go offsite?
  • Technology/Subjects – does the bootcamp have expertise in the technologies you want your employees to learn?
  • Corporate Training Experience – has the bootcamp had success working with other companies?
