Box is the leading Content Cloud provider, offering a single platform that empowers organizations to manage the entire content lifecycle, work securely from anywhere, and integrate across best-of-breed apps.

To attract talent with the most potential, businesses must begin to explore non-traditional hiring methods - especially in the tech world, where competition for candidates is fierce. Retention is also an increasingly important focus area, as businesses look to grow their talent internally. To build a strong early talent pipeline, Box turned to professional apprenticeships.

Driving valuable impact with Multiverse

Multiverse's apprenticeship supported Box's hiring plans by offering a unique way to attract young people with a demonstrated interest in software engineering and building a career in tech.

Box apprentices started with a software engineering boot camp, where they practiced critical project management skills, master tech skills, and receive coaching in JavaScript, SQL, and HTML.

Through the Multiverse program, Box apprentices are driving valuable impact to their engineering department and leveraging their communities at Box and Multiverse.

“Through partnering with Multiverse we have been able to take the necessary steps needed to drive a purposeful hiring plan and develop the talent needed for the future of our organization, alongside offering an amazing opportunity for apprentices to gain valuable skills and have access to development opportunities.” - Recruiting Program Manager at Box

The results

Productivity gains

Box has seen an increase in productivity gains due to new skills gained and applied by apprentices. In one case, a Box apprentice was able to temporarily take on manager level responsibilities which allowed their manager to redistribute 40 hours of their time to focus on larger strategic Box initiatives.

Long-term career growth

Box is providing apprentices with key skills and development opportunities to support long-term growth and success, with 100% of apprentices on program feeling supported.

“The apprenticeship provided a deep dive into the skills and requirements needed in the software engineering industry. It’s given me an opportunity to resolve critical issues that affect customers using the cloud based application.” - Jeff Collins - Software Engineering Apprentice at Box
