The workforce is changing as Generations Y and Z enter the workplace and challenge traditional ways of operating. The hierarchical org chart is being decentralised, the workplace is becoming more fluid, contractors are more common, and the expectations of workers are increasingly complex.
As ICT businesses brace themselves for an estimated 95 million skills shortfall your workforce has never been more valuable. Smart businesses are already looking at how they can integrate change and explore new ways that will find and keep the talent they need.
This #HelpMe guide addresses the most important shifts likely to affect the ICT workforce and the urgent need for business to start factoring in change as it plans for the future.

Finding the right person with the right skills and the right attitude at the right time has never been easy. Today it’s tough and getting harder. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, next year the world will be experiencing a global technology skills shortage of around 95 million people.
Businesses are competing for skills against a backdrop of a far more collaborative workplace where work forces are more fluid than ever. Progressive organisations bring people together from all around the world to work on a particular project – then disperse and redeploy them to the next challenge. This new way of working will reduce the need for permanent employees, with as much as half the future workforce made up of ‘transient’ contractors. This all adds up to make technology and data crucial to the increasingly complex task of human resourcing.
