Competing for Talent in the Digital Age

Today's Labor
Market Realities

Digitalization is creating huge pressure on an already stressed talent pool as organizations across industries compete for talent with digital skills. Out of the 9,000 jobs posted by S&P 100 companies in 2016, 39% were for just 29 roles.

Companies who fail to effectively compete face talent shortages which will impact business growth as well as employee engagement and retention.

4 Common Reasons
Why Companies Fail
to Compete

Organizations who cannot effectively compete for digital talent often face four common barriers:

  • Static Brand Attributes
  • Changes in Prospect Behavior
  • Overly Specific Hiring Demands
  • Lack of Supply

Businesses who adopt a labor market centric view to sourcing talent with digital skills are far better placed to compete for local and global talent through a proactive, analytics-based approach to recruitment.
