Studio98, a technology business solutions company in Clearwater, plans to add 10 employees to its payroll by the end of 2012. The additional staffing need is due to the company's successful training application known as Rethink Training.
"Rethink Training is a simple, clean, very easy-to-use system built for business," says Rafferty Pendery, CEO of Studio98
. "We have a tool that allows businesses the ability to easily create training as it happens in business. It's a fast-paced and incremental process. For example, if a company is launching a new product or service and wants to create a module to train their sales staff, they can build out that module with a few clicks and assign it to all of their sales staff, and track their progress in real-time."
According to Pendery, Rethink Training is in high demand as companies look for ways to keep training costs down, while still offering employees the training needed to do their jobs well. Also with the number of companies hiring temporary staff as the economy rebounds, Pendery says Rethink Training streamlines the training process for temporary workers so they can prove themselves quickly to an employer.
With the demand for Rethink Training growing, so will the headcount at Studio98.
"We plan to hire another 10 employees by the end of the year," Pendery says. "It's going to be a range of positions, but we know for sure we will be hiring developers and designers as well as management and marketing professionals."
