The talented employees; who are able to use existing digital technologies and adapt to evolving methods and new approaches; represent a critical factor will determine which companies have opportunity to achieve a successful digital transformation. Existing of these employees will support companies to benefit as they should from the latest advances such as data science, artificial intelligence, new digital business models…etc.
The technologies themselves will be evolving and relatively easy to exchange, but the workers capable of using them will be scarce. BCG expect a severe shortfall in digital talent around the world by 2020, when, according to a Gartner study, 30% of tech jobs will be unfilled owing to digital talent shortfalls.
According to BCG research, the biggest perceived technology challenge is not data security or the need to invest but a lack of qualified employees. Companies should respond to this challenge by understanding who these potential employees are, where they can be found, and how they can be attracted and retained.
Precursor provides their clients the support to identify the new digital job profiles, understand who is available on the market, find the required employees, and recruit and retain them.
Without skilled staff, there can be no digital transformation.
