Beat the Skills Shortage by Thinking Differently
Talent — or lack of it — is the single biggest accelerant of or obstacle to growth. Too often, however, we can’t find the right person with the right skill set at the right time for the right price because the talent pool is becoming alarmingly shallow. In fact, the 2016 State of the CIO survey found that nearly two-thirds of respondents view this as an “existential threat” to their businesses.
As Marshall Goldsmith’s book notes, “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.” We need creative thinking, fresh tactics and new strategies. We need disruptive thinking. We must consider “outside the box” ideas or learn to play with “no box” concepts — and that means moving away from deeply entrenched HR approaches. Join us as we explore ways to attract, engage and retain the talent to take your business to the next level. We will discuss:
- New tactics to find and attract better talent
- How to grow non-traditional tech talent
- Ways to gain access to undiscovered resources
- Talent investment as a retention strategy
Join us and dare to think differently!
