As part of the collaboration, Future Collars implements a comprehensive IT program, developed after analyzing the needs and guidelines from IT team leaders at Play.

The reskilling and upskilling program is a good solution to problems associated with the shortage of IT specialists. It offers Play employees the opportunity to develop technical skills and provides practical knowledge, so important in the rapidly evolving technology industry.

The course allows participants to gain basic programming knowledge and extensions, acquire knowledge about artificial intelligence, and develop skills increasingly sought after in the job market.

It includes workshops, lessons, and consultations for a group of selected Play employees, who will also have access to the Future Collars online platform for 12 months after the course ends. Future Collars continuously monitors learning progress through regular surveys and status meetings with the program's guardians at Play.

Joanna Pruszyńska-Witkowska, CEO of Future Collars, emphasizes the importance of comprehensive educational support: "We are proud to provide such comprehensive educational support to companies. Our 360-degree approach shows how comprehensive and valuable this is for our partners, and we are pleased that more and more companies see great value in it."

Through cooperation with Future Collars, we combine Play's demand for IT skills with the interest and desire for development of our employees. We are participating in the program for the first time, so we are particularly keen on monitoring employees' progress, listening to, and considering their opinions. I am convinced that this initiative will create a good basis for subsequent editions of the program, developing its formula based on the experiences of our employees."

The collaboration between Future Collars and Play (P4) is an example of strategic investment in employee development, which translates into increased competence in the IT industry and can be a model for other companies.
