Organisations more than ever need to hire digital tech talent to develop and protect their future business. Digital transformation of traditional business has driven the need for a greater focus on recruitment of digital tech talent at the same time that there is a shortage of the right skills in the available talent pool.
The digital transformation of any business can be a huge undertaking but for traditional large business this can be a monumental task. According to Gartner’s 2021 CEO Survey 60% of CEOs polled said they anticipate a return to economic growth 2022 and that more CEOs than ever are citing digital change and investment as a priority for their organisations. With the right leaders driving this transformation a good strategy can be adopted and key to success will be the recruitment of the right talent to execute it. Whether it’s the back-office operations or customer facing solutions a digital transformation project can encompass just about every area of a business.
A detailed project specification will enable the organisation to identify the key tasks that need to be completed within given timescales. Part of this process will be allocation of budgets and expected outcomes. Identification of the digital tech talent required to complete these tasks is also part of this process. This may be a combination of project managers, digital business analysts and software developers (programming and web or app developers) who have the necessary technical skills and experience to deliver projects on time and within budget. In addition to these skills many organisations will also be looking for digital visualization specialists to deliver useable solutions. Once the core coding and project work is complete organisations will most likely want to perfect their digital marketing capability with experienced digital marketers and this is usually combined with digital analytics.
Defining the skills and experience required for all this digital tech talent is reasonably straightforward. Recruitment of this digital tech talent can, however, be problematic due to a shortage of the right talent. With so many organisations in every sector going through, or planning, their own digital transformation the demand for digital tech talent has never been higher. This demand is driving up salaries and costs with talent being able to pick and choose where, when and who they work for, hiring digital tech talent is taking longer and becoming more expensive as a result.
Organisations embarking on their own digital transformation projects can look at reducing costs and time to hire of digital tech talent by considering an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) used by in-house human resources teams. These tech hiring tools make the entire recruitment and selection process more efficient by identifying the right talent quickly and streamlining the process to deliver a more accurate shortlist.
