Critical Talent Survey
HR decision makers rate ‘Technical and IT professionals’ as the most difficult roles to fill.
Talent Intelligence solutions providers Taleo regularly conduct research to analyse the best practices and economics of talent management. They recently commissioned a comprehensive survey amongst 500 HR decision makers in large UK companies about their current attitudes and approaches to their critical talent pipelines.
Amongst the questions respondents were asked was ‘Which critical roles are most difficult to fill?’ and the top answer was Technical and IT Professionals, coming far ahead of the second response (Finance & Legal Professionals).
Taleo commented on the results: “The difficulty of filling critical technical/ IT roles is perhaps not surprising in an increasingly technology driven environment, where innovations are crucial in driving companies growth and efficiency. It is also to be expected that while a company’s technology expectation grows, the required skill of technical/ IT workers also changes.”
