Next-Gen IT Management: The Evolving Role of IT Staffing

Posted by ilta on 8th January 2018

In the constantly evolving world of information technology, the way managers think about staffing for key roles must also evolve. In this podcast, we discuss methods for identifying key candidates, thoughts around job descriptions and their impact on filling roles, and building relationships with in-house recruiters and staffing firms that will aid in finding the newest member of your team. Additionally, we discuss the evolution of positions in your organization that can make it difficult to replace key team members when it becomes necessary, as well as managing teams that include vendors and consultants.
