What is the Salesforce Talent Alliance and why is Smplicity partnering with them?
The Salesforce Talent Alliance is an initiative directly from Salesforce aimed at bringing new talent into the ecosystem, with a specific focus on encouraging inclusivity and diversity. As the platform continues expanding at an exponential rate, the need for new Salesforce professionals is greater than ever.
As a registered Salesforce Partner Smplicity Consulting we are proud to support the Salesforce Talent Alliance for the year 2021, as we believe in giving back to the Salesforce community and developing the Salesforce Professionals of the future based on our current team’s experiences and methodologies from our continuous successful project delivery.
Why are we partnering with Salesforce Talent Alliance?
Everyone has to begin their career somewhere and gain experience, the majority of our team has built their careers in Salesforce using Trailheads and project experiences and would like to give something back to the next generation of Salesforce Professionals to build their careers.
It is estimated that the Salesforce ecosystem will drive 4.2 million new Jobs by 2024. To help bring new talent into the Salesforce ecosystem, we as partners need to work together to build a diverse workforce, but that reflects society around the globe. Encouraging a diverse environment is not only the right thing to do, it will foster even more team productivity as businesses look to tackle even more complex deployments as the platform continues to evolve.
At Smplicity Consulting we are helping to provide recent graduates/recruits with the tools, resources, and experience necessary to develop the foundations of their Salesforce knowledge and place them on the path to becoming highly effective Consultants or Developers.
Despite the lockdown, we have hired some of the best talents within Mauritius and are continuing to support our clients with our projects, many of which have a long term commitment. Our working model and practices have enabled us to adapt really quickly for maintaining our services. We have the ability to fully work remotely without any problem. All our team members are equipped with a stack of tools that they can access on desktop and on mobile as well as the equipment for online collaboration.
Salesforce’s Talent Alliance and Smplicity Consulting’s commitment to training and inclusivity is evident in all the great work that’s already happening across the ecosystem with Trailhead, and training and re-skilling opportunities.

Tips for success.
We reached out to our team at Smplicity to find out their tips for the success within the Salesforce Ecosystem. Here are some of their thoughts we have captured.
“Being new to Salesforce, trailheads helped me to set the right direction and focus on learning Salesforce during preparation for my Admin Exam and interact with the tool in a safe environment”
Ashfaq Dookhee – Salesforce Admin
“Trailheads helped me to understand the fundamental theories behind Salesforce and how it can improve end users processes. The theory when mapped with real world project experiences really helped to solidify the knowledge for exams completed for my Admin and Sales Cloud Consulting Certifications”.
