There is a better way to hire and retain the technology talent your organisation needs to be productive, innovative, and competetive. Have you heard about the hire, train, deploy approach to talent provision
People have the potential to power businesses to a new level, but how do you ensure your hiring and talent investment will pay dividends in the future? Where do you attract and retain the technology talent you need, when there is a distinct lack of available talent in the labour market? How do you minimise risk and cost when investing in emerging talent?
Recruiters might be able to offer an immediate reprieve – but are high cost (with substantial recruitment fees) and high risk (no retention strategy or support). Apprenticeship providers might offer access to junior talent and training support too, but apprentices do not immediately add value and require significant management and support to do so. Can your business afford to wait?
Sparta Global is a Hire, Train, deploy company that empowers businesses with diverse, flexible, and immediately available technology talent that can be deployed in small or large teams to power digital projects.
What is hire, train, deploy?
A long-term workforce solution, hire, train, deploy companies hire individuals upfront who they believe have the right attitude, aptitude, and potential to be a successful consultant. These individuals are then trained inline with a clients’ specific technology needs, or in a general specialism that’s prevalent in the market. At the completion of training, consultants are deployed to work on client sites in in-demand roles, on a contract basis, with the opportunity to convert to permanent employees after an agreed period. The hire, train, deploy model offers organisations the chance to secure the skills they need, retain emerging talent and IP, and build a talent pipeline in a cost-effective way.
Hire, train, deploy in technology
In a vision outlined in the government’s Transforming for a Digital Future Strategy, by 2025 the UK government aims to be a transformed, more efficient digital government.
Yet a lack of skilled tech talent – with labour supply and employment below pre-pandemic levels – and a fiercely competitive hiring environment, threaten the progression of the government and wider society’s goals for a digital economy.
With such a significant skills shortage, hire, train, deploy companies provide a long term workforce solution that enables organisations to invest in emerging technology talent who will become their own leaders in the future, finding untapped talent from a variety of backgrounds to plug the gap.
