Attracting and Retaining Technology Talent
There are a number of challenges facing the technology sector in Canada today. Labour shortages are not new, but the pandemic and the rapid pace of digitization have amplified the need for talent. The inability to attract and retain tech talent is now a critical business risk. Also, new demands and ways of working mean technology staff need a different set of skills. At the top of that list are soft skills, such as collaboration and communication.
As Canada’s demographics shift and more people exit the workforce, newcomers and immigrants are a critical solution to the labour shortage. While newcomers have deep technical expertise, many need support to enhance these essential soft skills necessary in today’s Canadian workplace.
Organizations will need new and strategic solutions to create inclusive workplaces and attract, retain and develop technology professionals.
