Our people are encouraged to exceed their potential, make a real difference to local communities, and acquire new skills and expertise. This is realised by offering unique opportunities to learn, develop and grow one’s career in a multi-cultural, and having a diverse global organisation. Our learning opportunities include: Dimension Data University Dimension Data University (DDU) is our online learning portal where employees can continuously grow their careers to not only improve performance in their current role, but also take the right steps towards their future career ambitions. It’s mobile-friendly and offers 3,000 courses. There are more than 27 Academies including a Management & Leadership Faculty and specific Vendor Certifications. Live online training is done via Virtual Classroom. There is an on-going focus to transform current skills for future needs, which includes the development of DevOps type skills. All training is tracked and updated on the learner’s Personal Development Plan (PDP). Sales Academy Within an ever-changing and competitive environment, our clients expect sales professionals who can help them to create business value for their organisations and navigate through the complexities of the buying decision. In order to enable our sales teams to deliver on these expectations, we’ve invested heavily in the creation and global roll-out of the Sales Academy. Designed with the client at the centre, its micro-modules provide our people with industry-leading content, designed specifically for their role, that can be accessed whenever and wherever it is needed. In addition to the learning content we have also developed a robust portfolio of exams to ensure that our sales teams have both the knowledge and skill to provide insight and value-led conversations in the client environment. Our Sales teams have risen to the challenge, with 4,631 exams passed around the globe since its inception in June 2016. Learn to Code Both the technology itself and the way our clients want to consume technology is changing, and this is paving the way for new coding skills. At the start of this year, Dimension Data launched a new initiative to help employees learn to code in a fun and supportive environment. The response has been amazing! Within the first fortnight, 300 employees across almost all of our operating countries were working through the module. To date, nearly 1,100 employees have completed the course. It has been fantastic to see this kind of response to this great initiative and we can’t wait to see where the program takes us.
