Confiz demonstrates its dedication to promoting a culture of continuous learning and development for its employees through the Leadership Development Framework (LDF), a program designed to empower its engineers to grow into leadership positions.
As the job market evolves and the “Great Resignation” trend gains momentum, research has shown that employees increasingly prioritize career growth and advancement opportunities when considering a job. LDF reflects this belief as it provides Confiz engineers with the right training and expertise needed to leverage technical and skill-based capabilities to become leaders in their chosen fields.
Confiz recognizes that the tech industry offers a multitude of career paths, and to facilitate the individual interests and aims of its engineers, it enables them to opt for skills best suited for them. The Leadership Development framework consists of three tracks: Engineering, Test Engineering, and Management. Each track offers different learning opportunities. By following these tracks, Software Engineers can evolve into Software Architects, Test Engineers can progress to Software Test Architects, and Aspiring Engineers can advance to Project Managers.
These learning tracks include training facilitated by online platforms like LinkedIn, Udemy, and Coursera. Confiz fully funds these courses to provide equal opportunities for its employees, enabling them to enhance their skills and progress toward promotions. In addition, the LDF program is available to all employees as soon as they join Confiz.
While explaining the vision behind this program, Ahsan Saleem, VP of Professional Services at Confiz, said, “At Confiz, we recognize that relying solely on years of experience is not the only criterion to measure professional growth. Our LDF program is designed to offer a well-rounded development plan that extends beyond technical skills, focusing on crucial soft skills needed for succeeding in leadership roles. We have created a holistic program that supports our engineers’ career development journey and helps them excel in leadership roles.
”Since its launch in 2019, LDF has already demonstrated its effectiveness, with over 20 engineers having completed 50+ certifications and advancing to leadership roles. Moving forward, Confiz intends to maintain its commitment to employee development and invest in new opportunities to empower its workforce.
