ServiceNow Global Program To Reskill One Million People By 2024

ServiceNow today announced RiseUp with ServiceNow, a global program designed to skill one million people on the company’s platform by 2024. The program will fuel a new economy of in‑demand, job‑ready talent with an emphasis on faster, more equitable career paths in the high‑growth ServiceNow ecosystem.

According to IDC, 90 percent of organizations will experience a digital transformation‑related IT skills shortage by 2025, costing more than $6.5 trillion globally due to delayed product releases, reduced customer satisfaction, and loss of business.1 As business leaders double‑down on a select number of powerful platforms that deliver fast time to value, ServiceNow’s reach and scale offer customers, partners, and prospective talent the opportunity to help tackle some of the biggest problems facing business leaders today. Unlike other workflow solutions that only address one business function or industry, the ServiceNow Platform spans the entire enterprise, offering opportunities in burgeoning new sectors such as data analysis, platform development, workflow, and experience design.

RiseUp with ServiceNow expands what it means to be considered tech talent by emphasizing whole‑person competencies and “power skills” such as critical thinking, interpersonal communication, and creativity. The program builds toward a more diverse, inclusive workforce by creating meaningful opportunities for candidates to gain the skills necessary to land highly coveted technical roles. 

RiseUp with ServiceNow focuses on three pillars:

  • Lowering barriers to learning: With more than 600 free courses and 18 job‑related certification paths, Now Learning allows individuals to work at their own pace. More than 325,000 people have already completed 2.3 million courses this year.
  • Expanding opportunities for tech talent: ServiceNow NextGen offers in‑house academies and training partnerships with non‑profit and government agencies. The redesigned ServiceNow Community also connects over 450,000 members with peer‑to‑peer networking opportunities, learning forums, virtual events, and more.
  • Placing newly skilled talent in jobs: A commitment to grow the new ServiceNow Partner Placement Program will help customers and partners source, train, and assess talent from diverse backgrounds with the expectation to scale to 25 total partners by the end of 2023.

RiseUp with ServiceNow complements the company’s investments in recruitment and career advancement for its own employees, along with strategic investments in employee growth and development solutions for customers and partners.
