The Future of Technology and Business: Our Children
Through direct hands-on experience working closely with the coolest person they know (their dad), two school-aged daughters of Pyramid Branch Director, Rajiv Kandukuri, were able to creatively depict Pyramid’s core competencies as an IT Staffing partner of choice.
From analyzing Pyramid’s completive fill ratios to market averages, outlining Pyramid’s 3 “P”s of staffing success and breaking down the IT screening process, these girls demonstrated a sophisticated level of understanding and excitement for IT and the business profession.
Pyramid recognizes the success of the experience and encourages partners and colleagues to find time to instill STEM principles and experiences in the hungry young minds of the next generation in the workplace, in the community and within your own homes.
“America consistently ranks poorly against its global classmates in STEM subjects, placing 25th in math and 17th in science out of 31 countries ranked by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Only about 18 percent of high school seniors perform at or above proficiency in science subjects, according to the National Math and Science Initiative. These alarming numbers are forcing America to go back to the chalkboard and evaluate where we stand in an evolving STEM world,” sites Melanie Baker, writer with NYmetro Parents.
The initiative to engage and inspire the next generation of professionals is near and dear to Pyramid Consulting, Inc. To support the advancement of these disciplines, Pyramid promotes STEM initiatives in schools and communities through mentorship, sponsorship and leadership in discussion and practice. In the summer of 2015, Pyramid opened our doors to the children of employees and these young technology and business protégés shared their insights into IT sourcing, hiring and the technology workplace.
Many thanks to Rajiv and his girls for sharing this experience. We look forward to introducing more children to the exciting world of technology and business.
