Two new Center of Excellence Locations open in Sacramento, CA and Boise, ID to facilitate hybrid training
Silicon Valley, CA – Ursus, Inc. the third fastest growing staffing firm the U.S. has launched Ursus University, a new, innovative, multiplatform training and development program designed for recent college graduates or those looking to start a career in the staffing industry. The program is delivered via a hybrid model that includes in person training and mentorship complemented by a self-paced remote on-demand curriculum curated and delivered by world-class staffing leaders from Ursus leadership and Ursus partners.
“Through Ursus University, we have the opportunity to widen our reach and accelerate our growth by providing an onramp for the next generation of talented recruiters and salespeople who, for so long, may have been overlooked otherwise.”, said Madeline Heuer, Director of Technical Recruiting and Training.
To facilitate the hybrid model, Ursus has opened two new Center of Excellence locations in Sacramento, CA and Boise, ID, designed for on premise training. Ursus adopted a remote first model over five years ago before the trend became generally accepted, but also recognizes the importance of in person training and development. The company has also partnered with Content Learning Management system, Degreed, who have provided a customizable platform to support the Ursus Way of recruiting while also incorporating industry best practice curriculum.
“Our program teaches the art of recruiting to those who come from all different backgrounds and interests. We are excited to launch Ursus University to help continue our mission to provide creative and technical talent to enable the digital transformation movement.” said Ellen Cleary, Director of Creative Recruiting.
Ursus will also invest in a summer internship program available to qualified pre graduate college students interested in staffing careers after graduation. In addition to providing equipment and collaborating with professionals in a hands-on learning environment, interns will have access to other executives and management from other leading staffing firms, technology providers and analysts who will participate as guest lecturers to provide real-world insight and mentorship. Post internship, Ursus will create and offer educational content to help inform, inspire, and develop early career professionals who want to remain up to date on changes in this fast-moving industry.
