Gartner advisors speak to hundreds of CIOs across the globe monthly, listening, guiding and advising them on their key initiatives and top challenges. We collect the top CIO questions they and their teams have been asking to provide you with similar recommendations. In this new quarterly update, Gartner CIO Voices, we bring you the latest insights on the top three areas your peers want to know about, zeroing in on the most pressing priority. Do you have the same concerns as other CIOs? What questions should YOU be asking?

In our first installment of the series, talent takes center stage. There is no question that attracting and retaining talent is the most common issue impacting CIOs and their organisations. To keep up with competition, CIOs look to their employment value proposition (EVP) drivers, like hybrid work policies, to gain an edge. However, increasingly, the strategic implementation of these policies falls short of the flexibility employees want by applying rigid approaches to “in office” hybrid work patterns, and they overlook signs of burnout.

Join us for the first episode of Gartner CIO Voices, as Gartner experts Christiane Groth, Brent Cassel and Satyamoorthy Kabilan share what they hear from your peers on talent strategies and the blind spots they’ve identified. We will dive into how you can rethink your return-to-work policies to reflect the human-centric and flexible needs of your employees and mistakes to avoid. Additionally, former CIO and COO at Australian enterprises and Gartner Vice President, Executive Partner James Lord will join us to cover the Asia-Pacific region perspective on talent strategies, and address the most-pressing questions raised by you and your peers.

Discussion Topics:
  • Rethink your return-to-office strategic design by clearly defining a new way of working for your organisation
  • Understand what a future-focused approach to hybrid work looks like, and how you can adapt your strategy
  • Identify other strategic opportunities to gain a competitive edge in talent retention and attraction
  • Know the questions Asia-Pacific CIOs should be asking – but are not
