IDC PeerScape: CIO Practices for Hiring and Retaining a Diverse IT Staff

This IDC PeerScape profiles several CIOs who have robust IT diversity efforts and have seen the business benefits. They can draw from a broader IT talent pool in a tight labor market. The greater "diversity of thought" on IT project teams yields more innovative ideas and fewer "blind spots" from faulty assumptions and biases. Readers will learn the leadership and talent management practices that these CIOs use to recruit and develop the diverse IT teams that produce better IT outcomes."Diversity begins with a diverse slate of candidates for hiring, but equally important is creating an inclusive work environment to retain that talent once it's in the door," says Mitch Betts, an adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP).
