Economic uncertainty, tight talent markets, and the rising need for IT versatility have altered the IT hiring landscape. Here's how companies are adjusting when it comes to IT staffing.
Hiring tech talent in 2023 means navigating an uncertain economy, the effects of widespread tech industry layoffs, and candidates who want to work for a company with a mission and workplace culture that align with their values, including diversity, equity, and inclusion.
IT leaders say the best approach is to focus on adaptability. Firms that want to innovate and grow while headcounts are in flux are looking to upskill talent from within, promote their firm's strengths to prospective candidates, and broaden their pool of potential hires from nontraditional backgrounds.
