JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Modis, global leader in professional solutions for IT, engineering and life sciences, was honored with a 2019 American Staffing Association Elevate Award. This national awards program recognizes the most innovative and effective work-based learning programs designed specifically for temporary and contract employees. Modis—a leading brand of the Adecco Group—won the ASA Elevate Award for the $100 million+ in annual sales category.
Modis was honored for its Modis Academy, which is a strategic training and upskilling program aimed at equipping candidates with the right foundation and technical know-how to pursue a career in software engineering, data science or UX design. The program, in partnership with global education provider General Assembly, offers candidates the opportunity to flex their talents and expand their skillsets—from recent college graduates to working professionals. Modis identifies candidates for the program, covers the cost of education, and then aims to place graduates at jobs within their network of employers across industries, sizes and regions, from Fortune 500s to startups. This enables graduates to build a career using their new skills and simultaneously develops a pipeline of talent with the expertise to take on some of the most in-demand jobs today.
"We are so pleased to be receiving this recognition from the industry because we believe Modis Academy is a critical model for creating a more sustainable future for workers and businesses alike," said Ger Doyle, president of Modis in the U.S. "As the rise in competition for tech talent continues, we're helping to cultivate a new generation of employees who can harness those endless opportunities."
The Modis Academy program has three education tracks powered by General Assembly's world-class network of instructors. One is an immersive, full-time program on campus for 12 weeks. The second is a 24-week, part-time option that covers the same content as the immersive training but is offered over an extended period of nights and weekends. Both of the full- and part-time tracks are designed for people who may have a minimal to entry-level background in computer science experience or for professionals looking to grow or change careers. The third education track is an accelerated option over the course of one or two weeks, designed for experienced computer science professionals who are looking to gain new skills in focused areas.
