    Upcoming Webinar

    Attract and Retain IT Top Talent for the Future of Work

    Recent shifts in talent, technology and work models transform the nature of work and reset expectations. CIOs who fail to adapt where, how and when work gets done – and who does it – will struggle to drive business performance, making it difficult to attract and retain top talent for the future of work. Join this complimentary webinar as a panel of Gartner experts examines the current status of the IT talent market and how CIOs can address attrition and retention.

    Discussion Topics will Include:

    • Understand how to recruit, reskill and retain technology talent for the future of work
    • Build organizational resilience through a blended workforce of full-time equivalents
    • Discover how to provide flexible work experiences to be the employer of choice
    Skills: recruit for technical versatility, seek staff with the ability to adapt and work in more versatile technology roles. Competencies: Focus on collaboration and engagement, prepare staff to flex models of working and collaborate directly with business partners. Career paths: Create experience-based careers, offer new pathways that give staff experience for growth. Team structure: Build fusion teams, mix delivery teams with IT and staff from other functions to embrace agile scale. Mindset: Foster a climate of openness, promote appropriate risk-taking and adaptability to digital business models. Inclusion: Invest in diversity, strengthen retention and development for women and other under-represented groups.

    Build a digital-ready workforce

    CIOs and IT leaders can no longer take a slow, reactive response in building digital capabilities. CIOs must rethink how they approach the workforce transformation through a holistic, integrated strategy. A strategic workforce plan is critical to building a continuous pipeline of high-caliber talent.  

    One common misconception is that going digital is about implementing a set of technologies that get you to a digital outcome. And that actually isn’t the case. Granted, technology is an enabler to a set of outcomes, but unless you really think through how you rewrite your company versus rewrite your software, you’re going to miss the desired end state.
