PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a British consulting company, will implement a staff training program for "digital skills", in which it will train them in blockchain technology. Through an advertisement in Digiday, the company confirmed that 1,000 of its workers would be trained in various topics of revolutionary technologies, ranging from drones to the development of blockchain solutions, as part of its Digital Accelerators program.
According to the report, the selected employees would be relieved of some of their daily tasks so that they can focus more easily on these training courses. The participants of the program would dedicate around 10 hours a week to this program, working together with the clients.
These 1,000 employees would be selected from a sample of up to 3,500 interested applicants from the more than 45,000 employees of the company, and that program would start in January and would last for two years.
About this announcement, Sarah McEneany, digital talent leader and head of the Digital Accelerators program of PwC, said that the initiative arises due to the growing demand that its clients make, requesting more and more qualified advisers.
Also, McEneany said that this initiative would serve to encourage the efficiency of its employees by reducing the workload they spend working in various situations, and that this would be reflected in the satisfaction of their customers.
