Winners of the ‘Excellence in Talent Development’ award

Version 1 is thrilled to announce that we have been named winners of the ‘Excellence in Talent Development’ award at this year’s Annual Technology Ireland Industry Awards.

In their 27th year, the Technology Ireland Industry Awards celebrate companies who have achieved exceptional success, developed innovative technologies and partnerships and achieved significant sales results over the past year. Taking place at the Mansion House, Dublin, on the 22nd November, over 80 of Ireland’s leading software and digital technology firms entered this year’s awards, which was attended by 400 company leaders and national stakeholders from Irish technology companies.

Version 1 was recognised for their ‘Pathways Model’, a model that focuses on driving enhanced Customer Success through the career growth and development of employees. The model is built around empowering and supporting employees in developing the skills and knowledge they need to grow their careers. The model makes it easy for employees to assess where their skill gaps are and understand how to fill them through learning and experience, both ‘on the job’ and training and development.

Commenting on the win, Denis English, Head of Capabilities and Performance at Version 1 said:

We’re delighted to be named as winners of this year’s ‘Excellence in Talent Development Award’ at the Technology Ireland Awards. It’s fantastic to see the new Pathways Model receive recognition for the impact it has had on empowering and supporting Version 1 employees across all our offices. We’re looking forward to continuing developing our Pathways Learning and Development initiative and helping Version 1 employees acquire the skills and knowledge they need to grow their careers.

Pathways is instrumental in empowering Version 1 employee’s career development through skills acquisition.

The principles of Pathways ensure that Version 1 employee learning is in line with ensuring that development is market and customer-driven, which in turn promotes Staff Career Progression through the acquisition of skill, knowledge and experience. The Pathways Model promotes a continuous learning ethos, to ensure excellent customer service is delivered by teams, comprised of individuals performing roles that have been enabled through the individual’s competencies. The model links directly with Version 1’s commitment to empowering employees on one side of the strategic triangle through the Version 1 Difference.
