Majesco | December 09, 2022
Majesco, a global leader of cloud insurance software solutions for insurance business transformation, today announced its first global learning day focused solely on the personal growth and development of its employees. This announcement comes shortly after Majesco released its annual employee opinion survey results which highlighted the ambition of the Majesco team to have more dedicated time for training.
“We all know the feeling of not having enough hours in a day. Between email, meetings, and deadlines, our personal goals sometimes take a back seat, As a leadership team we understand the importance of providing employees the time to learn, push boundaries, explore new opportunities, and take advantage of the training and resources that are available to them. We are excited to remove some of the pressure of the daily grind so our employees can focus on their own growth and have time to prioritize their personal goals.”
-Adam Elster, CEO at Majesco
Majesco will pause business operations on Friday, December 9th and provide employees dedicated time to embark on their own unique learning path. Earlier this year Majesco implemented two new initiatives focused on the growth and development of its employees including iLearn, Majesco’s training portal and one-stop shop offering a wide selection of product training and skill-based courses that employees can benefit from. Majesco’s development framework, CLIMB, provides a structured approach for career growth and provides the necessary tools and resources to help employees navigate their professional journey. In addition to these programs and collection of courses, Majesco employees will have access to specialized learning plans that include live instructor-led courses and recorded self-paced learning tools including videos, podcasts, and informative reads.
The purpose of the employee opinion survey is to not only better understand what we’re doing right as an organization, but uncover any pain points, We want our employees voice to be heard and used to better understand areas for improvement so we can add benefits that are not only important to our employees but set them up for success at Majesco and beyond,says Melissa Blankenbaker, Chief Human Resources Officer at Majesco.
