At Orion, we are committed to learning and believe that the continuous learning mindset fosters innovation. Furthermore, it keeps our people at the forefront of technological advancement, essential for both their careers and our organization’s growth. Our learning philosophy has been shaped by the following drivers:
- A continuous engagement process throughout one’s career
- It is owned by the individual, thus ‘self-serving’
- It is facilitated and tracked by Orion through managed learning channels
- The learning focus is on project requirements and emerging technologies
Orion Academy represents our learning ecosystem, driven by our philosophy. It provides multiple learning avenues such as LinkedIn Learning, Internal Course Catalog, a monthly training calendar, and knowledge assessment platforms along with continuous reporting and communication. The core focus areas are Technology, Domain, Leadership, Softskills, and Processes.
Technology expertise badges are used to recognize an employee’s technical expertise in the areas of development, automation and deployment. The learning is gamified, and Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum badges are awarded at 25, 50, 75, and 100 hours of completed learning respectively.
Orion sponsored its employees with advanced education through Amrita AHEAD, the Online Degree offerings of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, to get them ready for the future. The new continuous education program enables employees to earn a Masters in Computer Applications (MCA) while working at Orion.
The coursework is being offered online through Amrita AHEAD’s state-of-the-art learning management system and will include live weekly sessions with Amrita’s faculty. Coursework will feature immersive learning and online laboratory training in AI, machine learning, cyber security, and other critical areas of computing. The continuous education program at Amrita is one of many personal development benefits offered to Orion employees and will expand to include other programs such as Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in the future. The program has been customized to accommodate employees working full-time.
