IDC PeerScape: CIO Practices for Winning the Battle for IT Talent

This IDC PeerScape compiles the best ideas from several CIOs for dealing with the stiff competition for IT talent. These executives look beyond conventional recruitment strategies to find diverse and motivated talent. They develop deep partnerships with universities, work differently with their HR partners, and streamline the hiring process. They've adopted proactive strategies to attract skilled talent to their companies, none of which are big-name tech giants. "The winners in the IT talent wars will be the CIOs who take more aggressive and more creative approaches than just showing up at a few job fairs," says Mitch Betts, an adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs.
