Onboarding in Global Services and Support Involves Plenty of Blended Learning at Akamai

The Onboarding program for Akamai’s Global Services and Support (GSS) teams provides role-specific technology and product training that features engaging self-paced courses, memory boosters, hands-on labs, remote instructor led sessions, a mentoring scheme, self-help resources and smart automation. The primary objective of the program is to enable new employees to quickly become “role proficient” — knowledgeable and customer-ready in the areas of Akamai GSS tools, processes, products and associated technologies. Akamai Technologies — Technical Enablement and Education Team was honored with a Gold Award for Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program in the 2020 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards.
