Why would you
upskill your people?

With new technologies developing at lightning speed and a challenging job market, finding and retaining the right people is a daunting task. However, there’s a shortage in skills rather than a shortage in people. That’s why 50% of all employees will have to upskill within the coming five years, World Economic Forum already warned us.

Upskilling your employees is the best solution to bridge that skills gap. We know that upskilling will lift your employees’ spirit and give them a sense of belonging, knowing their employer invests in them.

Similarly, talented people are attracted to organizations willing to invest in their personal development. In the end, upskilling is between 72% and 90% cheaper than hiring new talent.

Benefits of upskilling your organization

Increase team efficiency and productivity.

Improve employee retention.

Boost employee belonging and satisfaction.

Attract new talent.

“Half of all employees will have to upskill in the next five years.”

Our mission

We strive to be the Authority: as a company, in each of our service domains, and as professionals. This mission was defined in 2004 and has guided Xebia ever since to become the company it is today: over 5,500 across the globe.

When teaming up with Xebia Academy, expect in-depth expertise based on an authentic, values-led, and high-quality driven way of working that inspires all we do. We sometimes call ourselves “Mainstream Frontrunners”. And it all starts with hiring the right people.

The only way we remain a leader of change is by continuously reinventing ourselves and transferring our knowledge. We force ourselves to keep innovating, driven by the desire to make a difference.

Our mission can be translated into four tangible drivers:

Become the no. 1 or 2 in each of our market domains

Always perform the 9 on a scale of 10.

Authority is our Big Hairy, Audacious Goal.

Be the best professional in a specific domain area.
