EMPAUA established a new partnership with Salesforce Talent Alliance, which will be launched in the UK by the end of 2020. The Salesforce Talent Alliance is a hiring program open to all Salesforce partners in the world that connects partners to Salesforce certified candidates and brings new talent into the ecosystem, emphasizing building a diverse workforce that reflects society around the globe.
The new partnership will allow EMPAUA access to a diverse pipeline of talent, along with resources to help us improve our culture in terms of equality within our company. Topics that are being highly considered for our new Corporate Social Responsibility Plan 2020-2021.
“A career in the Salesforce ecosystem continues to be sought after, leading to an incredibly competitive job market. More so for those who are trying to get their foot in the door. This is why we at EMPAUA have made a pledge to support those individuals as part of the Salesforce Talent Alliance, committing to 20% of our future hires being new to the industry.”, said Sarah Dallimore, Managing Director of EMPAUA UK, and, therefore, build a diverse workforce that reflects society around the world, including men, women, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Multiracial, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities and veterans, among others.
Along with this, EMPAUA will join the Salesforce Pathfinder Employer Spotlights for the first-ever UK cohort. “Through Pathfinder, Salesforce and Deloitte are training the next generation of Trailblazers. Armed with both the technical and business skills to become Salesforce administrators and developers, Pathfinder graduates will fulfil in-demand positions in the Salesforce ecosystem and blaze their own career trails.”, states Salesforce.
