A Solid Investment: Banking on Talent Development
The demand for analytics skills and talent has never been higher. As the workforce continues to evolve, so do the technology and skillsets required. Millennium Bank has partnered with SAS to customize a tailored development training program that improved skills and knowledge, while strengthening retention.
Data is paramount to a business, but data can be messy, and turning it into timely insights is complex. Companies need experts to help them interpret their data, explain it and visualize it in ways that are meaningful to decision makers. Though organizations may recognize and embrace the concept of data in their work cultures, they often fail to commit to developing the analytics skills their teams need to harness the data. Organizations often are unaware of the skills their team has, or even the skills they’re lacking. Companies that understand the importance of continued skill development for their employees can lead a cultural change towards continued learning in their organization. By investing in training for employees, businesses can improve employee retention and engagement, grow skills and standardize best practices and create a scalable solution for achieving their business vision.
The demand for analytics skills and talent has never been higher. As the workforce continues to evolve, so do the technology and skillsets required. What organizations do today to build an analytics workforce will determine the future of success. Millennium Bank gets it. That's why it's using its training academy to invest in its most important capital - employees.
The bank partnered with SAS to customize a tailored development training program – of both hard and soft skills - that improved skills and knowledge, while strengthening retention.
Tarcisio Pontes, head of Millennium Banking Academy shared, “I think this new generation is looking for development ... sometimes it's not just salary they're looking for. They're looking for a good experience and learning. This is the kind of people we wanted to attract, and we did it with SAS.”
