A Large Government IT Organization is Taking a Revolutionary Approach to Their Investment in Human Capital Through the TEAM Act of 2012, the organization has replaced the traditional civil service system and is implementing a performancebased organization. Part of this transformation is the creation of the IT Academy – their IT Training Organization. The IT Academy, supported and delivered by Learning Tree, is a multi-year program providing their employees with the knowledge, skills and abilities to meet the needs of a modern IT organization.

A Large Manufacturing Firm Shifts from Outsourcing to Insourcing Information Technology Professionals When one of the world’s largest manufacturing firms decided to bring all of their information technology jobs internal, the focus on their human capital became more important than ever. To attract the best talent, Learning Tree and the manufacturer worked together to build a “roadmap to success”. The roadmap provided excellent upward mobility and opportunity for new hires, while continuously improving their skills. Specifically, Learning Tree provided: custom curriculum development based on job roles; knowledge-based skills assessments; instructor-led training delivered to multiple locations within the United States; and hands-on coaching after the training.

RESULT: This program modernized the skills of an entire workforce utilizing just 0.5% of the overall IT budget. This is addressing the challenges of attracting and retaining the highest-quality talent to support its agencies and constituents, as well as converting to the requirements of new technologies.

RESULT: In 2015, over 1,500 employees will have graduated from the new hire program. Learning Tree and the manufacturing firm actively work together on improving the optimization services, and look forward to aligning content with different formats, and devoting more instructor lead time to higher-complex items in 2016.
