A platform to help secure employment
This new programme has been created and implemented by ServiceNow’s Next Gen Program that aims to make careers in technology accessible to diverse and often underprivileged social groups. Mentoring, coaching and creating opportunities to inspire and innovate are just as important here as providing the latest knowledge.
Ultimately, our goal is to get women back into work, so we strive to provide our WBB programme participants with early access to potential employers and internship opportunities to facilitate their job hunting.
The ServiceNow module goes a step further by bringing DXC Technology, into the learning process to create a link directly to employment while the course is in progress.
The first participants to complete this new ServiceNow module at the end of January 2020 are already going through the shortlisting process, with DXC Technology looking to hire the best candidates as business and technical consultants by 1st of March 2020.
As with any collaboration, its success is determined by those organisations that are involved and how they work together. Our one-of-a-kind partnership with ServiceNow and DXC Technology is proving to be incredibly successful because of our shared values of diversity and inclusion, and of creating opportunities for people from a variety of backgrounds.
The skills for tomorrow
Having spent a number of years abroad with my family and then completing advanced studies before returning to work, I can certainly relate to the women attending our WBB programme.
“I once had a rich professional career in IT until I became a mother and lost my subject matter expertise. The collaboration between ServiceNow, DXC and the University of St. Gallen has created an amazing opportunity to re-skill individuals and has given me everything I need to learn skills that are in high demand,” noted one of the students.
There are many others that tell me how the coaching and the interaction with other women has helped them regain their confidence. They discover new possibilities and opportunities for themselves and their careers that indeed transform their lives in the long term.
I believe the word “future” is particularly important here. By combining strategic management knowledge with the ServiceNow foundational skills, our participants are in a very strong position to succeed in the fast-evolving digital economy — not just today, but in the future.
