We’ve been hearing about, and living through what seems like a never-ending talent crisis in our industry. Constant innovation drives a need for people with skills that don’t yet exist, to manage and integrate technology that has just been invented. Recruiters work tirelessly to attract top talent, only to see that talent leave. In this panel we’ll talk about some of the top issues around the tech talent pipeline. We’ll cover retention, career mobility and eliminating bias in the hiring process.
