AMETIC, RED.ES and the Digital Skills & Jobs Coalition, organised the ‘I Foro de la Alianza por el Desarrollo de Talento Digital’ on the 20th June in Madrid, where K2 University presented the digital journey of a K2 business associate.
Our team in Spain demonstrated how our K2 Konnect platform provides a community for digital professionals share, collaborate and innovate on their various projects. Members of the platform can manage timesheets, expenses and invoices, while for companies the entire identification, selection and onboarding process for finding the right talent is streamlined in one easy to use solution.
Of particular interest to K2 was providing students and fresh graduates with the needed training courses to get them started on their own digital careers, in partnership with universities. For students K2 Konnect is extremely useful as a source of advice and support to help them forge their digital career.
K2 University was a finalist for the 1st Edition of the ‘Digital Skills Awards Spain 2018’. There were 4 finalists for every category and K2 University was among them in the DIGITAL SKILLS IN EDUCATION. Our nomination was backed by our strategic alliance with Salesforce Trailhead for Students and the initiatives offering ongoing support to the Students interested in becoming Salesforce Certified Professionals.
