Veterans Programs: STAR and NOVA
At present, there is a shortage of qualified IT workers in the U.S. Our colleges and universities are not graduating enough computer science and information systems majors to keep up with demand. At the same time, many US Veterans are seeking to enter the civilian workforce after years of military service.
We created a Veterans Programs to offer U.S. Veterans a career path in IT. We want to help fill the need for IT professionals with American talent while offering Veterans viable employment opportunities.
STAR provides qualified Veteran applicants with entry-level IT training at an accredited facility and the opportunity to work onsite at some of our Fortune 500 clients.
Minority Business Enterprise
Companies with aggressive diversity initiatives all too often find that their supply chain of Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) vendors is not able to keep up with demand. Simply enlarging the pool of vendors does not resolve the underlying issue: that many MBEs are unable to flourish in traditional managed program structures.
UNITY creates a level playing field for MBE suppliers. Within your managed program, it provides training, mentoring, and infrastructural support to MBE suppliers while implementing a rigorous framework for quality control.
UNITY doesn’t simply add links to your supply chain—it’s a transformative program that allows you to make each link stronger.
