AMS and Revature launch a strategic partnership to address the technology skills deficit and boost diversity in the workforce through world-class skilling initiatives
LONDON, Mar. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- Combined offer delivers a unique integrated approach, utilising technology 
skills development programmes, that enables companies to build in-demand 
digital capabilities in existing or future employees

AMS [] (formerly Alexander Mann Solutions), a global 
provider of talent outsourcing and advisory services, announces a strategic 
partnership with Revature [], a leading technology talent 
development company. The new alliance enables clients to address the technology 
skills shortage by expanding the skills of new and existing talent, enabling 
organisations to better compete in the future of work. 

At a time when accelerated change has become the norm, creating a workforce 
built for change requires a sharper focus on counting skills instead of 
headcount, and the joint AMS and Revature solution equips organisations to make 
this shift. Technical skills are an absolute necessity that drives every 
business, yet digital skillsets are changing rapidly, making it increasingly 
difficult for organisations to keep up with the people they already have or to 
source new talent from the market. The SIA Staffing Trends 2021 report confirms 
this need, citing both the scarcity of experienced hires compared to demand and 
the "growing scrutiny and societal pressure on organisations to address 
workers' long-term employability" as key factors. Relying on hiring experienced 
tech talent can no longer support the need — skilling options must become 
integrated in the overall technology hiring landscape.

Together, AMS and Revature address the critical need of upskilling existing 
talent within organisations to close crucial skills gaps and retain talent 
through opportunities for internal mobility. This partnership goes one step 
further through a unique approach that also identifies early career talent and 
grows technology capabilities on-the-job, as a critical part of a complete 
talent acquisition strategy — cultivating the next generation of technology 
experts suited for each organisation's specific needs. Combined, these two 
tactics provide a strategic alternative to competing for and "buying" expensive 
experienced digital talent while creating opportunities that lead to a more 
diverse and inclusive workforce. 

David Leigh, CEO of AMS, commented on the partnership:

"Digital skills are the most rapidly shifting in today's workplace, and the 
ability to keep pace has a tremendous impact on business performance. AMS has 
long been recognised as a pioneer in the talent acquisition space and we pride 
ourselves on partnering with clients to power their people strategies, 
especially amidst constant change. But we also recognise that future workforces 
will need to continuously reskill and upskill their talent, and our work with 
Revature will accelerate our ability to provide a holistic approach as we 
address the tech skills deficit. We are delighted to partner with an 
organisation that believes in and supports our goal to help clients achieve 
true workforce dexterity."

Ashwin Barath, CEO and Founder of Revature, said:

"Revature is excited to partner with AMS in our efforts to provide best in 
class entry level software engineering talent and workforce transformation 
capabilities to the world's industry leaders and their technology 
organisations. Our ability to grow and nourish our clients' future workforce is 
unparalleled. The single biggest challenge facing firms that are transforming 
digitally is to both attract outstanding talent and to skill and upskill their 
existing workforces consistent with their strategic objectives. AMS and 
Revature answer this challenge with a truly unique partnership that leverages 
each firm's strengths and global reach. Our goal is to be the strategic talent 
partner of choice for every company that believes in human capital and its 
ability to power technology organisations in their pursuit of competitive
