Yondudes gathered for CODECAMP to get training opportunities in a corporate learning environment.

 For businesses to continue thriving in the now-normal circumstances, digitalization is the way to go, and Yondu, the top IT solutions company wholly owned by Globe, recognizes the importance of upskilling their workforce to prepare them for highly-digitized industries. 

Yondu promotes a digitally-savvy society by providing holistic solutions to various industries. Moreover, the company does not only value its clients, but also its employees. They put great importance in continuous learning and making their learning management system accessible to all the employees. Roxanne Tamayo, Vice President for Human Resources, said Yondu equips their workforce with the necessary knowledge and skills for their personal and professional growth. 

Tamayo added, “Yondu also provides various certification programs from globally recognized institutions to our IT professionals to ensure they adhere to global standards and deliver quality services and output.” IT professionals get to practice their learnings and see them come to life through the apps and systems that Yondu launches.

Yondu upskills its employees through various programs and initiatives. In 2018, they held their first three-month long CODECAMP Bootcamp which offered training opportunities to aspiring IT professionals, in partnership with several universities. The initiative led to the founding of Yondu University which was established to drive the development and growth of young IT professionals. Yondu also holds a Hackathon, a design sprint-like event that throws employees with a business perspective into the mix.

Yondu also organized the Capability Build Program where Subject Matter Experts create a learning path and curriculum and train other team members under it. They launched DEAL (Drop Everything and Learn) as well, an initiative discouraging meetings every Thursday of the week to let employees focus on work or learning.

Tamayo noted that Yondu’s upskilling culture has been thriving even before the pandemic, with several programs designed to enhance the employees’ soft skills, like leadership and personal development training, to ensure their IT professionals can respond to the customers’ ever-evolving needs and changing business landscapes. The programs help ensure they grow in their personal life so that they can contribute to their families and societies the best way they can.

With endless opportunities, aspiring IT professionals are guaranteed to grow in Yondu as the company not only prioritizes learning and improving, but also supporting their employees’ mental and physical wellness. 

Yondu hopes to provide more opportunities for other aspiring IT professionals, believing that if they have the skills and the right mindset, learning technology will be easy for them, and Yondu will support them every step of the way.
