There's still a huge talent gap. Here's how to fill it.

Despite a cooling job market in some sectors, many companies are still experiencing a shortage of cloud talent. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Deloitte’s Josh Haims about how companies can fill that gap. Josh’s take is that education must catch up with technology, companies should build a culture that attracts employees and builds tech fluency throughout the organization, and HR and the business need to build a closer relationship with a shared set of goals and outcomes.


The better that HR leaders understand the nuances of tech talent, the more effective you'll be, and I think the ability to create a very high-performing engineering culture...will materialize.

Josh Haims is a Human Capital partner at Deloitte, solving his clients' most complex and pressing workforce issues. He leads the Cloud-Enabled Workforce Market Offering to support clients’ transitions to new ways of working.
