This webinar will address the talent shortages which force us to work in partnership to develop creative methods to attract people to the industry and build their skills. We need to look wider than the usual suspects. But how?
Talent shortages have a serious impact on the digital infrastructure industry, and the talent gap will only widen as technology improves and demand for supporting infrastructure grows. As an industry, we must work together to develop creative methods to attract people to the industry, and build the requisite skills, knowledge and capabilities.
Some iMasons members are tackling this by building new pathways into the industry, many with a specific focus on communities currently underrepresented in the industry. There is real opportunity in a focus beyond the usual suspects. The most creative companies are offering internships, apprenticeships, graduate programs and scholarships to attract new talent or partner with schools, universities, job centers and charities to reach communities outside those more traditional networks.
Join us to hear their stories, and learn how you can make that work and tackle talent shortages.
Topics covered include:
· How to bring – underrepresented –
talent into the industry
· What are others already doing to
bring talent into the industry?
· Real-life stories of companies who
have set up their own pathways into the industry.
