About this Webinar
Good help is hard to find—and keep. According to a recent study conducted by IT staffing firm TEKSystems, a whopping 78 percent of IT managers and 80 percent of IT pros experience difficulty finding qualified candidates, resulting in a longer hiring and onboarding process. It's not just technical skills that are in excess demand, however. Are you satisfied with your team's overall level of talent and potential to grow within the company?
Watch our webinar on how to close the IT skills gap with noted information technology expert, columnist and accomplished author, Gary Beach. After penning the best-selling book “The U.S.Technology Skills Gap,” critically acclaimed for being the “best contextual history of STEM education written,” as well as providing guest columns and commentary for authoritative media outlets like The Wall Street Journal and National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition” programs (among many others), Gary is ready to share his more than thirty years of insight and experience with MSPs!
