Two things were common denominators of change during the pandemic – across every industry and geography in the world – digital transformation and adaptability. Those who could leverage technology to keep running the engines from anywhere and anytime we’re able to survive the crisis. The ones who couldn’t adapt to the new reality were side-lined and would soon face oblivion. So now that the world is trying to switch to a ‘normalish’ existence, these imperatives get even more stark. Organizations would need skilled people and technologies even more now to continue to serve their customers as per new models. The new reality of omnipresence, remote service, and tech-enabled solutions would require a solid army of tech resources to help a company continue its post-pandemic momentum. But is there enough talent around to deliver this technology strength?
Rising demand for top tech talent
As we can see. It will not be easy to find talent – especially skilled-enough, close-enough and willing-enough. The distance between your organization and the talent it needs is getting wider with the changing talent landscape and employee expectations.
Challenges in attracting quality tech graduates
That’s why companies need a proper kit to attack this new set of challenges.
How to attract quality tech graduates?
The only way to satisfy the right tech talent is to equip oneself with the ability to meet their needs through a tech-savvy strategy. It is not too hard or expensive to do. Just follow some essential tips.
Invest in technology – Whether it is recruitment or orientation, or appraisal; start to cut wastage of time and energy through smart use of tools. Today’s cloud-enabled solutions make it easy and fun for both employees and employers to handle all areas anywhere, and anytime, way without compromising on quality and impact. For example, tools like Oto_Code can help you build a smarter tech team with the most advanced AI-powered tech assessment system. It checks code quality, scalability, and performance with absolute accuracy.
Establishing your presence in the tech scene – If you want to attract tech talent, the last thing you want is an image of a confused or obsolete company that is clueless about using technology. So start defining your comfort and portfolio of tech tools in alignment with the latest developments.
Designing a smart and modern recruitment strategy – Do not let recruitment be that old-age exercise that consumes too much time and spends many hours on the top of the funnel, making quality talent skip the process in between because it is tedious. Try to make it personalized, sharp, and time-savvy with the use of smart recruitment tools that use chat-bots, Cloud, and AI to your advantage.
Not being limited by geographical borders – Using Cloud and scalable technology allows you to tap talent seated anywhere in the world. This is the best side-effect of the pandemic. Now you can use skills with no boundaries, and with the right tool, there is no limit to access good talent, which is not costly or hard to reach.
Also, make sure that you involve your current team in the recruitment process. It is important to understand the value of prospective employees and make suitable investments of time and technology towards that goal. Smart companies have already started tailoring work schedules and compensation packages to individuals. They have also realized the difference that transpires when they offer exciting career paths instead of boring trajectories to their prospective talent. All this efficiency, customization, and engagement can come easily when you execute recruitment with a fresh mindset and tools. Start thinking of your marketing as part of the recruitment process, and you will start noticing the change from day one.
The world has changed. So your tech recruitment approach needs to get tech-smart and ready for the talent you are looking for. The rules of the talent race are different now. So it is time to play the game with a new plan. Win the talent war with the best arsenal by your side.
