Building an Engaging IT Culture to Retain High-Value Talent

Building an Engaging IT Culture to Retain High-Value Talent

This IDC Perspective provides a blueprint for developing a plan for cultural transformation; we discuss specific tactics that have worked and why they have worked. The discussion includes guidance to CIOs on how to make these practices their own and see measurable difference in employee retention and diversity metrics; it should be clear from the discussion that this is not an area where CIOs should just assume that human resource (HR) will keep the culture whole and productive."CIOs must be intentional about building a culture that keeps high-value talent and helps them thrive, evolving all IT team members into high-performing engaged employees who seek out opportunities to grow personally and to unite the team in the accomplishment of the enterprise mission," according to Cora Carmody, adjunct research advisor with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP).
