To better retain existing workers and attract new tech talent, Eidosmedia began investing in cloud skills development with A Cloud Guru in 2019.
The move both served to further modernize the organization and show employees (current and future) that the company values professional development — a prudent move given that 94% of employees (2019 Engagement Survey results) say they would stay at a company longer if it invested in skills development.
Many of those in the company’s deployment teams have followed ACG courses and obtained certification in areas such as GNU/Linux RedHat and AWS cloud specialties. One of the most appreciated features of the training is the ‘playground’ where trainees can try out new tools and resources in realistic environments.
A Cloud Guru also has resources for skills assessment - useful for mapping existing competences and identifying potential gaps which can be filled with the training available on the platform.
