There is a better way to hire and retain the technology talent your organisation needs to be productive, innovate, and compete. Introducing 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 in line 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.

The benefits of Hire, Train, Deploy

  • Tailored skill set: The model allows companies to hire employees based on their potential, regardless of their current skill level. Once hired, employees are trained specifically for the role they will fill, which ensures they have the necessary skill set to succeed in the position.
  • Improved productivity: Employees who have been trained specifically for their role are likely to be more productive than those who are not. They will have a better understanding of their responsibilities and the expectations of the role, which can help them work more efficiently and effectively.
  • Reduced turnover: Employees who receive training are more likely to feel valued and invested in by their employer. This can lead to higher job satisfaction and reduced turnover, as employees are more likely to stay with the company for the long term.
  • Cost-effective: The model can be cost-effective for companies as it eliminates the need to hire employees who already have the required skill set. Additionally, it can reduce training costs as training is specific to the role and can be completed in a shorter amount of time.
  • Increased diversity: The model can help companies increase diversity in their workforce as they can hire individuals from different backgrounds and train them for the specific role they will fill. This can help improve the company's culture and bring new perspectives to the team.

Overall, the hire, train, deploy model can be an effective way for companies to build a skilled and productive workforce while also reducing turnover and training costs.
