GXO Logistics is partnering with Multiverse to launch a new Data Academy to increase data literacy and drive efficiency across the GXO organization while providing a clear and rewarding career path for employees.
GXO team members will be enrolled in Multiverse’s 15-month Data Fellowship program, receiving best-in-class training in data analysis that will enable them to clean, analyze and model data, and explain data and its uses to non-specialists. GXO has already enrolled 20 team members and believes those who successfully complete the program will be able to identify revenue- and cost-saving opportunities for the company and its customers and boost data-driven decision making across the company. Participants will also learn to use Tableau, an application that helps extract actionable insights from data.
In 2022, GXO was named one of the UK’s Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers. The company has more than 1,000 apprentices in warehouses and offices learning how to succeed in fields such as logistics planning and operations, business administration, human resources, finance and information technology.
Peppa Wise, vice president of GTM UK at Multiverse, said, “Data is a key tool for unlocking growth, efficiency and opportunities. But data can only be harnessed with the right skills in place throughout an organization – and apprenticeships are simply the best way to develop those skills. Through our partnership and our shared commitment to developing talent, GXO’s apprentices will get access to outstanding data training that happens through work and is guided by industry experts.”
Mark Simmons, human resources director of GXO UK and Ireland, commented, “We’re excited to work with Multiverse to launch this new training program for our team members in the UK. Developing the right data skills in-house is crucial for our success because our customers expect us to deliver better value through greater insights and improved efficiency, driven by data. This new Data Academy is another example of how GXO is working every day to make our company an employer of choice, empowering employee growth through industry-leading salary and benefits, opportunities for training and development and a workplace that is safe and inclusive.”
