ASU, Helios partner for HR tech apprenticeship

College is first HBCU partnership for Helios

Montgomery’s Alabama State University and Helios Consulting are launching a new apprenticeship program in the HR tech field.

“The pace of technological change is only getting faster, and higher education institutions have a responsibility – and an opportunity – to keep up,” said Dr. Sabrina L. Crowder, AVP for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management at Alabama State University. “Through our partnership with Helios, we’re ensuring that ASU students can build upon their college education by mastering the skills needed for success in high-demand fields like HR tech.”

Helios’ Rise apprenticeship program trains participants with both technical and business skills in HR tech roles. Helios is the advisory partner of Workday, the HR tech platform for nearly 10,000 companies worldwide. Participants in the apprenticeship program become paid employees of Helios and, after completion of training, have pathways to join Helios’ clients, the company says.

“Alabama State University has a well-deserved reputation as an institution committed to fostering economic mobility and opportunity for its community,” said Helios President Trevor Lee. “Together, we’re shortening the distance from college to career, and helping ASU graduates access great jobs in a fast-growing industry.”
