Upskilling Employees on AWS

XalDigital became an AWS Partner in 2018, accelerating sustained double-digit business growth. The company sought to upskill employees on AWS, and it links training to employee compensation and bonus programs to prioritize AWS Partner Training and Certification.

The company used AWS Learning Needs Analysis to assess its skills gaps, then combined various types of training. It offered both classroom and on-demand digital training in AWS Skill Builder Team subscription (AWS Skill Builder), providing flexibility to employees based on their specific needs, projects, and schedules.

The company also used game-based learning within AWS Cloud Quest, part of the AWS Skill Builder online learning center.
