JOVACO Contributes to TECHNOCompétences Sector Diagnosis
TECHNOCompétences, whose mission is to support and promote the development of labour and employment in the ICT industry, recently published the 2018 edition of its diagnosis for labour in the ICT sector in Quebec. Published every 3 years, this document groups together key information gathered from numerous studies and analyses. JOVACO Solutions, which has been collaborating for several years with TECHNOCompétences, has contributed to this diagnosis by participating to a study and attended the results presentation.
The event Talent en TIC : dévoilement des constats et des enjeux (“Talent in ICT: Unveiling results and issues”) took place at the hotel Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal on January 30. One of the major themes discussed during the presentation was the recruitment and retention of resources in the industry. Indeed, 66% of resources who leave a company voluntarily do so within 3 years of having been hired. As such, organizations face a challenge when it comes to the integration of new resources within their team.
The panelists discussed new approaches and solutions to remedy this situation: among the various solutions presented, the necessity of providing more opportunities for coaching and internal training was brought up. It is also essential to trust employees, be transparent, and allow them to evolve within the organization in a way that suits their individual personalities and realities with offers tailored to their needs.
