PwC To Boost Internal Blockchain Expertise With New Employee Program

Popular consultancy firm PriceWaterHouseCoopers has launched a new digital initiative. According to Digiday, a new two-year program has been rolled out by the firm in order to increase their employees’ knowledge of technologies such as blockchain.

“Digital Accelerators,” the theme of the skill-building program, will cover other digital courses such as 3D Printing, Drones, and data cleansing.

Positioning the firm to compete for “heavy digital client work” is believed to be the motive behind the new initiative. Right now, the company is not primarily known for its marketing consultancy work but hopes to turn its fortunes around.

Blockchain and Digital Knowledge is Crucial For Employees

Digital talent leader at PwC and head of the Digital Accelerators program, Sarah McEneaney reflected positively on how such training can increase productivity. She said in the official news report,

My job is to future-proof our workforce… It just seems table stakes at this point that people should have more technology skills. It’s needed for us to remain competitive and to be responsible for what our clients are also going through.

In addition to this, the company hopes to cut down costs for its clients. This will be possible because employees can use the skills acquired at the training to complete tasks a lot faster on digital devices.

Statistics reveal that only 3500 out of the company’s 46,000 UK employees sent in requests to participate in the training. Also, only 1000 has been selected to participate in the 10 hours per day of training which will begin in January.

The latest move by UK based PwC adds to the list of effort made by firms to increase employees knowledge on blockchain technology. As reported by Coinfomania last month, a Chinese communist group unveiled a new book to teach public officials and workers about blockchain technology.
