The Driver For Increasing Workforce Competitiveness In The Global Marketplace

EMPOWERING PARTNERSHIP

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP

A PARTNERSHIP FOCUSED ON DEVELOPING TALENT TO COMPETE IN THE GLOBAL MARKETPLACE

In today’s marketplace on a global scale, employers are presented with a wide range of choices to hire talent. Outsourcing talent has been one of the leading factors for reducing costs and increasing efficiencies, but outsourcing has its challenges.

The most pressing of those are adequate training or knowledge of specific technology, understanding the business culture in the United States, and maneuvering through cultural differences. The partnership between The Jitu and Dedan Kimathi University of Technology (DeKUT) has focused on developing talent to compete in the global marketplace by offering technology training and developing the person to serve both employers and future employees by making outsourcing talent easy and efficient. 

The Jitu is committed to finding and training some of the best young talents in Kenya in software development. We have learned that the talent in Kenya is some of the best in East Africa. However, opportunities for these talented individuals are limited. One of the challenges for university and college students in Kenya is finding internships and industrial attachments to help harness their skills.

WE HAVE DEVELOPED A PROVEN PROCESS TO ENSURE RESULTS ARE VALUED BY ALL PARTIES INVOLVED 

There is mirid of reasons for this limitation of opportunities. However, we decided to address the problems with a solution that ensures the students can be productive members of international software development teams regardless of the obstacles.

At The Jitu, we deploy innovative approaches to guide students, such as; mentorship programs, peer-learning, and project-based group study methods. Our unique methodology enhances learners’ abilities by quickly becoming productive contributors to international development teams. Students gain the requisite classroom knowledge paired with the in-demand hands-on skills critical to success in our fast-paced industry. 

This nurturing approach to talent development could not have been possible or as successful without the support and guidance provided by Dedan Kamathi Technology University leadership and facility. 

The Dedan Kimathi University of Technology is one of the most progressive universities in Africa, with a keen focus on quality education. DeKUT offers a wide range of programs in various doctrines at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. Programs are spread across Engineering, Sciences, Management, and Technology Studies. These programs are approved by the Senate and various designated bodies such as the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) and the Commission for University Education (CUE) established by the government of Kenya. 

Dedan Kamathi University of Technology has a successful history of building partnerships and collaborations that have led to programs catalysts for innovation and growth with their students and the local community. 

Working as true partners, the university’s leadership and The Jitu’s leadership developed a selection process and training curriculum that identifies the best talent and trains it to high international software development standards. 

Our collective goal is to build a pipeline of well-trained technology professionals in Kenya who can work with companies worldwide. 

At the same time, we are bridging the gap between academia and the industry by offering them internships and industrial attachments.

So far, three cohorts have managed to go through the program. Cohort one, two, and currently, cohort three is in progress. The Jitu has hired the best students from the first two cohorts, and their growth within their new teams has been exponential. 

  • A great partnership starts with dedicated partners committed to doing all it takes to achieve the desired outcomes.
  • A university focused on quality education, research, innovation and technology development.
  • A company focused on talent development and cost-effective staffing solutions.
