Through the Ingage Accelerator program, we helped a major Cincinnati insurance provider find quality IT talent, resulting in placement and subsequently full-time hiring and promotion of an apprentice.
Like many companies in the US, our partner, a major Cincinnati insurance provider, has challenges finding quality IT talent. An executive expressed interest in the Ingage Accelerator program to address the shortage of IT talent.
We were able to recommend an apprentice, paired with a mentor, for an open quality assurance position. Our mentor onboarded quickly, helped train the apprentice, and recommended quality assurance process improvements. The training worked so well that the apprentice was hired ahead of time. And, has since been promoted.
Our mentors learn critical leadership skills and our client partners are increasing the diversity of their technology teams without disruption to their business, while also filling staffing needs in a competitive marketplace. After witnessing the success and impact that our program can have, our client partner is now a huge advocate and proponent for our accelerator program.
To deliver inclusive and innovative, people-centered solutions, increasing diversity across technology teams is more important than ever before. Team diversity is multidimensional and should reflect race, gender, socio-economic status, education, age, or other ideologies to best reflect a customer base. Our Accelerator program addresses the Tech Talent gap to support companies all over the region while developing a more diverse tech sector. We actively recruit, coach and develop new talent from underrepresented and broad backgrounds to jumpstart a successful career in technology.
