Undeniably, there is an ever-growing talent and skills gap being felt across all industries, and nowhere more so than in finding candidates with technology education. As tech-candidates flock to start-ups and tech firms, industries outside of the tech sector are relegated to a talent-pool that is far more limited both in quantity and, especially, quality. From basic operations to cyber security, modern businesses simply cannot function without strong tech talent.

Through testimonials, case studies, round tables, and panel discussions, experts in the field will provide the strategies you need to undertake not only to improve acquisition tactics, but also bolster retention. Acquiring the right tools allows talent acquisition specialists to be a step ahead of their competition, improving overall public relations through newly adapted hiring strategies, and ultimately making their brand more relevant to the next generation of clients and candidates.

The top-to-bottom educative approach of this event begins with the initial steps of understanding the positions you need to fill, exhibits the tools you can use to automate administrative tasks, demonstrates the best ways to utilize online recruitment applications, and teaches the most innovative assessment strategies industry-wide, ensuring retention even from the outset of the hiring process. A broad range of perspectives have been cultivated to produce an essential experience drawing from tech-based industries, education, financial institutions, retail, and government.

Don’t simply cope with the tech talent-gap; conquer it. It is impossible to be agile without the most relevant information, so don’t get left behind. Hear the most up to date strategies from the people changing the game. Join the conversation in Ottawa and bring about the changes that will prove to reshape the tech talent acquisition industry.
