Mind the Gap: IT Versus HR — Who Owns Key Workforce Initiatives

Mind the Gap: IT Versus HR — Who Owns Key Workforce InitiativesThis IDC study highlights the need for more and better alignment between the HR and the IT management teams. The IT function is facing talent shortages, especially in areas where skill sets are new or are in short supply. It is important then for CIOs and IT management to have a strong alignment to the human resource philosophy, practices, and technologies deployed within the organization to attract, acquire, assess, and reward the workforce."IDC research indicates that there are disconnects between the views of HR and IT management as to ownership responsibility in a number of areas. It is important for there to be better alignment through better communication and awareness building. Disconnects left unattended will result in less-than-effective talent management outcomes," said Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR and Talent Management Services for IDC.
