Women in STEM Workforce Training Program
To support female retention and career advancement in the company, Seagate seeks to broaden critical skills of female employees in STEM-related frontline positions, especially soft skills such as problem-solving, vision setting, etc. These have been found to boost productivity and retention, thus benefiting both the worker and the company. Trained employees are more likely to receive higher incomes and to request additional training for technical skills.
Seagate established an in-company training and mentoring program for female frontline employees to empower them and develop pertinent soft skills. The modules apply activity-based, participant-driven learning under close mentorship. The program has an initial target group of lead operators including 1,000 female employees and 100 male employees. Given the overwhelming feedback from participants, the management team decided to expand the target group to cover entry-level operators.
To date, 100% (13,842 employees) of frontline operators have already completed the program with more than 90% satisfaction. As a result, the engagement level has risen, and the work environment has improved as ideas are shared. Employees are more motivated with increased self-confidence and a positive mindset to take on new challenges.
