Aliso Viejo, July 14, 2016: UST Global, a California-based digital technology services company serving Global 1000 enterprises, announced that it has won the ATD BEST Award for Learning and Talent Development. The BEST Awards ceremony will be held on October 5, 2016 in Washington D.C. at the historic Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.
The BEST Awards, presented by the Association for Talent Development (ATD), recognize organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success, directly resulting from employee talent development initiatives.
UST Global’s learning and development efforts are aligned with its strategic priorities and business objectives. The company is currently going through a phase of accelerated growth as a result of expansion into foreign markets, series of acquisitions, introduction of new service lines, and new client acquisitions. The key focus of its talent development strategy is to create an identifiable and measurable business impact by supporting the needs of its clients. UST Global’s employees are equipped with the latest technology, industry specific domain knowledge, and necessary soft skills for effective client engagement. This ensures that the company has the right talent and skills to support its exponential growth and ensure business success.
UST Global’s talent development goes beyond training employees and focuses on creating social impact. ‘Step IT Up America’, its flagship talent development program, is unique in its approach. With this program, UST Global intends to attract, train, and deploy talent from 10,000 inner- city minority women across 10 major cities in the US. ‘Impact India’ is another program that aims to train and employ 10,000 differently-abled individuals across India in technology related jobs. Through these programs, the company has been able to provide an opportunity to many individuals to build a better life for themselves and their families. UST Global’s volunteer program ‘Colors’ - encourages team building, collaboration and provides an opportunity for employees to develop their personalities and leadership skills by pursuing aspirations outside their functional requirements.
Speaking on the occasion, Madana Kumar, Global Head-Learning and Development, said, “As an organization, UST Global believes in disruptive innovation. And this is what we did with our talent development strategy as well. An innovative and intelligent mix of talent development programs with an explicit strategic intent of social cause and business impact has helped us win this and many other awards. We are humbled by the fact that our strategy is getting international recognition.”
“In today’s competitive environment, Human Capital is the key differentiator. At UST Global, we have consciously adopted ‘Valuing Talent’ as a strategy to support organizational growth. Our learning and development programs have always been innovative to ensure maximum business impact. In this digital age, we use technology to consistently upskill our workforce. This helps us meet our organizational goals and manage the demands that accompany intense technological transformation.
