Let’s face facts: The demand for tech talent is skyrocketing and there’s no end in sight to the talent war. Technical and non-technical job postings, along with salaries, are increasing across software engineering, data science, sales, marketing and other skill sectors. Competition is fierce not only from IT providers, but big tech and startups . Even non-tech companies are winning a large share of tech talent. All this spells trouble for today’s mainstream channel partners who just want to meet the demand from customers for supporting their IT needs, especially in the areas of cybersecurity and managed services. This session will help every MSP leader learn how to beat out competitors for top talent while coping with the mega trends of a tech talent exodus and rising wages. CEO of JS Group, Janet Schijns will share their latest research findings on the talent war underway in our channel and concrete actionable insights on how to apply these learnings to your business for growth today. Discover strategies you can put in place now to upskill employees, tap into the freelance (some call it gig) economy and get creative fast to secure the talent you need.
