How your team can benefit from Codecademy
Adam Godson, Chief Product Officer at Paradox and Codecademy for Business customer, tells us:
“Investing in our team’s continued learning is of utmost importance, for both the success of our business and the betterment of each employee. Codecademy for Teams equips us with the technical skills and tools we need to be an industry leader, while keeping our employees engaged, motivated, and connected to one another through learning.”
Offering Codecademy to employees has benefits for both individual team members and full organizations. Here are just a few of the ways we’re seeing teams benefit from learning with us.
Keep your team’s skills up to date
Technology is constantly evolving and, with it, new languages and tools become the norm. Ensure your team stays up-to-date as the industry changes. We’ve seen everything from engineering teams using Codecademy to train developers on new languages to analysts honing their data science skills, marketing teams moving off of Excel, and more.
Empower non-technical teams to learn technical skills
As we’ve mentioned, learning to code isn’t just for programmers. Access to Codecademy can empower non-technical teams to learn technical skills that can help them advance in their roles.
Marco, a Senior BI Analyst, felt stuck relying on data engineers to help with his day to day tasks:
“I have always been curious about coding and the idea of sitting around without getting my hands dirty was something that I wanted to erase. My wake-up call was when my data engineer co-worker suggested that I pick up some SQL skills to provide me with some independence when completing my tasks. SQL took my modus operandi to another level. I prepare better reports in less time and I’ve finally landed a Senior job that required advanced coding skills.”
Build confidence and encourage problem solving
Like Marco, who was able to advance into a more Senior role, we’ve seen many learners benefit from learning to code, beyond just the technical skills. Learning to code improves problem solving skills and helps prepare teams for the future. Plus, the process of learning new skills offers a major confidence boost.
Johnnie Weathersby, Senior BI Data Analyst at The Motley Fool, another Codecademy for Business customer, tells us:
“Codecademy has been an asset in our efforts to increase technical skills around various points of the company, and move training participants from unfamiliar-to-conversant and from conversant-to-practitioners in the realm of coding.”
