Speed is the key when it comes to hiring top tech talent
LONDON, March 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In an article published on Business Reporter, Joseph Liberatore, President of Kforce, describes the rapid changes in the staffing market brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021 companies are striving to accelerate their digital capabilities, and to monetise the new datasets created by digital interactions. At the same time, they are reimaging how their capabilities can be deployed in remote working environments.
With human-to-human interaction vastly reduced, technology has become the way that companies interact with customers. It is the central driving force in removing friction between customers and product purchase.
However, as the pandemic unfolded last year, it became clear that significant gaps existed in the ability of many organisations to execute projects or hire the talent needed to build new digital capabilities. One way of solving this problem has been to build teams with embedded leadership: the deployment of "talent as a group." This approach has given organisations space to recruit the teams they need.
Industry has seen "digitalisation at scale and velocity." One result of this is a massive shift in the skills needed to operate effectively. For example, more than three quarters of businesses in the USA plan to increase spending over the next two years on data analytics capabilities.
As more companies focus on technology, fewer people are needed in offices. More professionals are working remotely than ever before, and this has resulted in productivity increasing during the pandemic. In this evolving, boundaryless environment, a national presence supported by local expertise is needed to provide access to the best talent for high-demand skillsets.
