Alithya Bolsters Expertise of its Digital Solutions Center with Expansion to Morocco
Access to highly skilled IT talent pool will help meet growing demand for company's innovative services
MONTREAL, Aug. 4, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - Alithya (TSX: ALYA) (NASDAQ: ALYA) is pleased to announce the opening of a subsidiary office in Tangier, Morocco, where it looks to leverage the North African country's rich IT talent pool in order to bolster the expertise of its teams, and to help advance the innovative work of Alithya's global Digital Solutions Center that already comprises over 650 highly skilled professionals.
As Alithya continues to expand its operations in North America and Europe, a growing demand for its transformation services requires new and creative approaches to find highly skilled IT professionals to support our client's needs. In order to offset regional shortages, Alithya is recruiting from Morocco's expansive pool of young, university educated IT professionals. The new recruits, who will primarily engage in remote work, will be integrated into Alithya's North American and European teams and work on global projects.
A gateway to IT recruitment
Tangier, Morocco's second largest economic hub, is home to three engineering schools that have developed more than 8,000 graduates currently seeking employment opportunities. From that large tech base, Alithya is expanding the pool of expertise made available to its customers in existing markets. Additionally, Morocco's tech-educated workforce is comprised of an abundance of English and French speakers, addressing both main languages employed by Alithya's operations.
