SkillStone in 2022 – Achievements & the Way Forward
December 27, 2022 - Panchkula
How It Began
A global digital innovation leader, Grazitti has now emerged as an employment provider in the region. When we set out to hire the best talent for technologies such as Salesforce, Full Stack, DevOps, and QA, we witnessed a lack of work-front competency and industry-readiness.
To bridge the gap between knowledge and its real-world application, Grazitti launched SkillStone. On May 17, 2021, we kicked off the first batch of the Salesforce Developer Beginner Course. The aim was to build industry-ready professionals from a thriving pool of talent ready to rise up to challenges in the world of IT.
A Sneak Peek Into 2022
As we enter 2023 with new aspirations and enthusiasm, we recall our achievements this past year. 2022 has been a roller coaster ride of challenges and new learning. Let’s now take a sneak peek into what it looked like.
When we began, we were approaching students and working professionals for enrollment. However, we realised that we could build lasting impact by collaborating with educational institutions. This way, we could provide industry exposure along with academics to help students upskill during degree completion.
We started contacting colleges and universities to get students and working professionals on board and succeeded in enrolling 250 students from Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar, for our first batch, in June.
2022 has been a fruitful year for SkillStone in terms of fresh admissions. We welcomed 345 students across different courses from colleges, as well as individual enrolments. Here is the breakdown of admissions:
We got students and working professionals on board and provided them with placement assistance, helping 100% secure a job.
