Taking learning to the eXtreme - 24 Week Talent Attraction Program for a Pension Bank in Indonesia
A Pension bank in Indonesia wanted to make a long-term investment in talent and quality, via talent attraction program for fresh engineering graduates. The objective was to help in identifying the right program to quickly up-skill the talent and keep them engaged. We needed to build in skills around XP, good coding practices, and an approach to problem-solving within the bank.
The recruitment process was run independently, and the initial set of candidates did not have the basic background to compete fairly in the program.
For this, we Identified internal coaches to make the program sustainable for the Bank over time. Alignment of internal teams around their expectations from the trainees in immediate delivery projects vs. the long-term goal of the bank was a key challenge that needed to be addressed.
The Bank was able to infuse young, enthusiastic talent into the bank, with a strong grounding in XP and good practices. Their approach and quality of output were visible to the delivery teams they were a part of, building an interest overall within the Bank to find ways to deliver better.
We created a 8+16 weeks program to provide a hands-on experiential coaching
Classroom-based (8w) & handholding on live delivery projects (16w)
We involved ourselves in the screening process that improved the quality of candidates in the second batch
We identified internal coaches to be a part of the program as attendees initially, with a goal for them to eventually front-end the same.
