The Academy

The Transputec Academy was launched early in 2015 and leads to “self-improvement” through training and learning. The Academy is the name we give the scheme through which all employees train, develop, mentor and be mentored.

The Academy expands on the induction process and involves everyone in the organisation undertaking ongoing training, giving each person the opportunity to learn and develop. It includes external and internal training, education, learning and development to achieve accreditations.

"the best way to learn is to teach"

The Academy also gives employees the chance to share their knowledge with others, we call these people EXEMPLARS. Exemplars are invited to share their subject matter expertise with their peers in short courses that are less then 15 minutes long. These courses are recorded on camera and shared with other members of staff worldwide.

The process of learning, assessment and people’s development is supported by an online application which provide a convenient and flexible way to "self-improvement".

“Transputec’s Academy is an excellent training initiative with a unique approach.  Through the creation of activities and initiatives to measure ongoing skills & knowledge retention, the Academy’s formalised training programme enables HDS to integrate its solutions and sales training paths with Transputec’s own methodologies. The Academy activities have strengthened the knowledge of HDS products and solutions within the Transputec sales team which has seen an improved engagement with the HDS sales divisions.

The resulting success is evidence of the partnership approach of our Partner First strategy and enablement model with Transputec”

Growing "Stars"

Our goal is to encourage and reward learning and to help our "Stars" share their knowledge and create more "Stars".

Training is an investment in our people to be fully conversant in technology, ensuring a company that can deliver tangible benefits for customers.

It assists the culture of the organisation to be a continuously learning organisation, which embraces change enthusiastically for the opportunities it brings.

Training stretches our people to achieve high goals, incentivises and rewards people on performance/achievement as part of each individual’s Training Plan.

The objective is to measure everyone to achieve a common and recognised standard. We believe that training must be complemented by assessment for knowledge capture.

Performance is measured through KPIs and company culture alignment through Rewards and Recognition surveys.

Academy training feeds into a scheme where individual growth and development is monitored and reviewed by Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on a quarterly basis through Balanced Scorecards review.
