Today in the StarTribune is an article from Adam Belz (@adambelz) Minnesota companies need IT workers, but stumble in hiring.
I missed Adam’s phone call, and his deadline, to contribute to the article. I agree with what he published and after speaking with him today look forward to future articles on this and related topics.
Here is what I want you to do…
Right now... read it.
And then read the comments section. Try to get through some of the political comments and rants.
Do you really want to know what your IT staff is thinking? There it is.
Now what are you going to do about it?
See, you can’t sit in your office, board meeting, angel investor meeting and lament about the “talent shortage” without asking yourself these questions:
- Does anyone know we are hiring?
- Do we have an adequately staffed HR/Recruiter team? Do they have the resources they need to find who we are looking for? Do they have the time to recruit for what is needed today and also for next week, next month, next quarter?
