While talent management is an issue throughout higher education, IT is in the unenviable position of facing the tightest labor market. Higher education’s IT leaders must contend with low unemployment, uncompetitive salaries, and more flexible remote work policies offered by the private sector. And these challenges come on the heels of deteriorating talent issues, including the need to invest in “grow your own” talent programs for entry-level roles and navigate reskilling opportunities to prepare IT employees for changing technological aspirations. 

Sessions

Join the IT Forum for a two-part virtual roundtable series to discuss strategies to shore up retention and build a more talent-“resilient” IT shop. These roundtables will bring together IT leaders to learn from across the globe to engage in a two-day conversation about talent challenges and opportunities.  

Part One of our Two-Part Series, How to Address Your Most Egregious Pain Points to Retain In-Demand IT Staff, will cover:

  • Case studies of institutions making proactive compensation changes to retain key roles
  • Profiles of institutions embracing distinctive flexible work arrangements
  • Engagement levers to drive employee satisfaction and community-building

Part Two of our Two-Part Series, How to Build a Talent Shortage-Resilient IT Organization, will cover:

  • Profiles of IT departments modifying organizational structures and rescoping roles to optimize talent 
  • Tactics to upskill and cross-train staff to fill hard-to-hire roles and meet emerging IT needs
  • Case studies of successful internal talent pipelines and career mapping to prevent a talent exodus
