Going PRO Talent Fund Helps Line 45 Stay Competitive & Train to Retain
Line 45 was founded by in 2014 to help small and medium-sized companies use technology to make informed business decisions and work more efficiently. They provide custom software development focusing on web and mobile technologies with a specialization in geospatial software. Line 45 takes a proactive approach toward employee development because they are a consulting company and consulting is inherently a thought-based industry. Gaining new knowledge in technical and management areas helps them better acquire and serve new clients.
Line 45 of Gaylord was awarded $1,350 in Going PRO Talent Funds to train 1 employee, Jessica Kane, in how to configure a base deployment for Esri's ArcGIS Enterprise platform. The training was provided by Esri.
Jessica has been with Line 45 for 5 years. She started off as a Business and GIS Analyst and now is a Project Manager and GIS Developer. After this training, Line 45 expects to give her a 10% raise this year.
The training helped Jessica gain knowledge in Esri's ArcGIS Enterprise system, which will help her work with clients (state agencies and other organizations) that use Esri software to implement more streamlined information management systems. Line 45 expects this training will help them expand their current service offerings to both current and new clients. In addition, they train to retain. Line 45 recognizes that good talent wants to get something back from work and feel appreciated, therefore training their staff helps them develop as individuals, making them more likely to stay highly motivated and stay engaged with their company. Management points out that feeling empowered helps their team do better work and have a more positive attitude, which is good for them and reflects well on the entire organization.
Jessica states, “The Esri training I was table to attend thanks to the Going PRO program will be invaluable to my work at Line 45. It will allow me to deploy enterprise GIS systems for clients who have complex or strict data management policies.”
