NASSCOM Reskilling Series – Wipro’s Journey
Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog
As part of its Reskilling series, NASSCOM FutureSkills explores how Wipro is driving learning transformation in the digitally transforming world.
Problem Statement: ‘We know that we don’t know’ is the maxim of the wise that Wipro follows.
Solution: In its journey to embrace the new and future technologies, Wipro is looking at frameworks and tools to be prepared. The technologies in demand at Wipro can be placed in two buckets:
first, those technologies that are already in high demand termed ‘Digital Technologies’ and
second,those where demand is likely to come up, or ‘Emerging Digital Technologies.’
No one can deny that investing in digital skills training will result in long term rewards, and even help in the short term (as we are seeing thes days) by empowering the organization and its employees, augmenting their competitive advantage and guaranteeing that they don’t get left behind in the race. Nonetheless, the training cost per employee in digital technologies can be very high.
Did you know for example, the training cost in Pivotal, at an architect level can be as high as $20,000 per person!
Thus, there is a need to carefully plan how many to train on what.
Not training enough people may run the risk of not having enough talent to meet future demand!
Training too many may lead to un-deployed resources looking for ways to utilise their new skills!
Business and talent leaders need to have crystal balls to arrive at the right mix!
Wipro Believes: it is reasonably in control of planning the talent mix of the organisation but admits that you can never get it completely right.
Practically, there will always be projects where the team will not have desired composition. There is a need to have just-in-time learning that can prepare the team to do what they need to do.
It is here that Wipro has FutureSkills, the industry-led learning ecosystem catalysed by NASSCOM, very useful. Through FutureSkills, learners can build awareness and skills in layers, starting with building the foundation through breadth and improving the speed to learning depth, once demand becomes visible. Wipro has not only enabled the platform to its employees for learning, it has also picked up AI & BigData as two skill areas for which its SMEs are curating the content on the platform.
