Solving the Tech Talent Shortage: Retooling the IT Workforce and Recruiting New Tech Talent 
February 21, 2018 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
How are you solving your tech talent shortage? 

The demand for tech talent has never been higher and the deficit of skilled technologists is now significantly impacting businesses. A recent survey by Indeed found that 83% of respondents for a survey stated that the tech talent shortage has interrupted revenues, slowed product development and had increased employee burnout. Skillsets that are in severe shortage, including coders, architects and data scientists have all experienced a steep increase in their wages which in return have made many suitable candidates inaccessible for some organizations. If premium wages are still not going to attract the talent you need, how do you fix the current talent gap?
