Learning from Leaders: The State of Chicago Tech Talent
Tech Talent. It is a topic tirelessly discussed, analyzed and picked apart. Why is it hard to find? Why is it hard to retain? What can be done to eliminate these problems?
ITA and our Talent Advisory Board (TAB) bring you a program that will allow a deeper discussion into these issues. The experts from Cleversafe, kCura, Rise Interactive, Sprout Social, Vibes and the rest of TAB will bring insight and advice to the table and ask you questions that will allow you to further and efficiently analyze what you are currently doing and how to bring it to the next level and become one step closer to finding a new industry-wide issue to discuss.
A sneak peek at what they will ask:
What are you doing to set your company apart against competitors (in hiring) both locally and nationally?
How and when are you addressing employee concerns, comments, and turning employees into brand ambassadors?
How tech savvy do non-technical (sales, marketing, finance) employees need to be and how do you find or train them?
How do you strike the balance of perks and freedom AND accountability and responsibility?
How do you build a process at your growing company throughout the employee life cycle?
