Despite the widely acknowledged shortage of workers with good IT skills, the latest channel insight report from channel services provider Agilitas IT Solutions suggests that business leaders in the IT channel are optimistic about their ability to attract and retain talent.
Almost two thirds (64%) of the 250 leaders working in UK-headquartered technology companies with more than £5 million in turnover surveyed for the EVOLVE for Your People report gave their ability to recruit skilled staff a rating of 8 out of 10 or above, contributing to an overall confidence rating of 7.8.
When asked how confident they were that they had the right recruitment policies in place to appeal to potential recruits, business leaders returned a rating of 7.6, up from 7.3 in 2021.
Channel leaders are also confident that they have the workplace culture to support the long-term retention of staff (7.9).
When asked to select three things that could most improve workplace culture, the top rated initiatives were: hybrid and remote working (39.2%), diversity and inclusion (32.4%), team building/ social activities (31.2%), company-wide communication (30%) and responding to employee feedback (29%).
