Although layoffs in the technology industry have recently filled headlines, overall trends in available talent point to a crisis for employers. There is just not enough skilled technical talent to go around, and organizations are competing vigorously for the best of the best.
Though many businesses are acutely aware of this fact, few IT and people leaders agree on how best to approach hiring, professional development and employee retention.
That’s why EPAM Continuum sought out the input of 900 senior leaders from technology, digital, data, product and people (learning, HR and talent acquisition) departments all over the world — a group that spans 20 industries and nine countries across North America, Europe and Asia — on their approach to talent management — and whether it’s working or not.
Specifically, we sought to answer the following questions:
- How do IT and people departments partner and split roles in hiring, developing and retaining tech talent?
- How do IT and people departments evaluate their technical and people management knowledge to optimize hiring, developing and retaining tech talent?
- What are the reasons that technologists leave a company?
