upGrad has rolled out a campaign to showcase the value of upskilling across various technology domains.
 
Conceptualised by The Womb, the film highlights the value of techies in corporate organisations, and the need for upskilling across technology domains through courses powered by upGrad. The film showcases the mayhem that ensues when there is a fire in the office and how the team decides to rescue Kiran, a skilled blockchain technology employee. 
 
Ankit Khirwal, head of marketing, upGrad, said, “We can no longer pretend that skilling is not important, especially in the field of technology, where human-machine interactions, Web 3.0, brand building in Metaverse are happening as we speak. Following this trend, we have witnessed an increase in interest from women coders for our tech offerings across blockchain, FSD, DevOps, cybersecurity, and more. Therefore, to encourage them further to upskill and fast forward their careers, our digital campaign will undertake a micro-targeting approach, to showcase the right offering to the right viewer based on their interest and profile, to help them navigate their upskilling solutions.” 
 
Suyash Khabya, creative head, The Womb, said, “When there’s a fire in the office, who will you save? Yourself, your boss or the most important employee in the office? That’s the premise Gunjan cracked when thinking of this campaign. The chaos added to the drama, the twist added to the fun, and thus, we found a creative way of highlighting the importance of tech courses in today’s world.”
