Challenge
Attract, develop and retain young talent in the inner regions of the country
Action
Within the scope of the repositioning operated by Bizdirect, as a reference partner in the implementation of Microsoft solutions (Dynamics 365, SharePoint, Power BI, Visual Studio, Azure), the Bizdirect Competence Centre was created at the Polytechnic Institute of Viseu. From here, consulting, development and integration services are offered in several EMEA countries, with technology produced from Viseu.

To strengthen the company's talent pool and simultaneously help strengthen training and retain talent in the inner regions of the country, the established partnership annually receives students from Computer Engineering and Business Management courses. During a period of three months, the participants receive on-the-job training that complements their more academic learning. At the end of the training course, the most successful young people are given the possibility of becoming part of Bizdirect and thus begin their professional path.
Impact
  • Since 2014, more than 40 students of the Polytechnic Institute of Viseu have completed their training at the Bizdirect Competence Centre.
  • 98% student hiring rate.
