Australia's tech industry faces a severe IT skills shortage, making talent acquisition and retention challenging. Logicalis Australia, a prominent IT solutions provider, has unveiled its Talent Services offering. Scott Brown, the Head of Employee Experience, describes the current recruitment landscape as "haywire" due to high demand for skills, particularly in cybersecurity and AI.
The low unemployment rate and slow immigration recovery intensify competition for IT talent. Logicalis' Australia CIO Report 2023 shows that 77% of CIOs plan to increase talent investment. Scott underscores the challenge of finding the right skills quickly.
Logicalis Australia's Talent Services offers on-demand IT professionals, and provides agility and capacity, reducing project delays and enhancing flexibility in the fast-paced tech market. The IT skills shortage, particularly in emerging tech areas, is expected to persist.
Logicalis Australia's Talent Services launch marks a significant step towards addressing the IT skills shortage and helping organisations meet their project demands efficiently in an ever-evolving tech landscape.
