Analysts predict that there will soon be over one million jobs available to software developers. But due to the ever-widening skills gap, a vast major of these positions will go unfilled. Companies of all sizes are expected to be impacted by the talent shortage in some form or another.
Looking to find even a slight edge over competitors, forward-thinking organizations are now totally rethinking how they recruit, hire, and retain tech employees. Titled “Rethinking Strategies for Filling your Talent Gap,” this article explains why we believe upskilling, diversity, and onshore outsourcing can prove lucrative as you look to fill your company’s tech positions.
In order to survive the grueling tech industry, companies must be forward-thinking, and always out to discover market shifts before the competition. Those who fall behind will quickly die off. Those who maintain an edge will live to fight on. Our team scoured troves of data and research to discover past industry shifts in an effort to predict what’s to come. The following is a list of five tech trends companies should expect to see in 2019.
Unsurprisingly, we begin by covering the industry’s broadening talent gap. As technology continues to expand its tentacles to reach the most remote regions of our planet, the demand for skilled engineers who will design, build, and maintain the next generation of software is expected to grow exponentially. We’ll show why it’s happening and what smart companies are doing to address it.
Next, we’ll touch on the topic of diversity, explaining why we believe diversity in thought is every bit as important as racial or gender-based diversity. We’ll also cover the steady rise in onshore outsourcing by U.S. firms and the many reasons why. Lastly, we’ll explain why we foresee changes coming to the two core groups that most influence the success of every company: customers and employees.
