Hosted by Charlotte Kao (Head of Talent) at Ratesetter, in collaboration with the advanced Coding Assessment Platform, Indorse.

The majority of businesses are currently suffering from a skills shortage; not helped by Brexit and the significant reduction of EU nationals joining UK workforces (61,000 – according to the Guardian). And this skills shortage is showing no signs of improving, with 63% of organisations reporting this problem during the last 12 months. This, coupled with a boom in the digital sector, requires organisations to rethink their strategy around developing and retaining tech talent.

So, what if there was a solution to an organisation’s tech skills-gap woes? And what if the answer was to invest in upskilling? With talent retention being a key challenge faced by business leaders, what better way to retain staff and address skills-shortages than by investing in your existing workforce’s development?

The reality is the rate of technological change has caused a mismatch between the skills that existing workforces currently possess, and the skills that businesses need them to have in the future. There’s no hiding from it any longer; learning and development is essential for future success.

At this HR Leadership Think Tank, we are exploring how organisations can upskill their tech talent through assessment based learning.

With the help of Indorse, we will be exploring this upskilling model with a view to boosting employee retention and addressing this skills gap. We are calling on HR Leaders to attend this informative and thought-provoking event in partnership with their Chief Technical Officers (CTOs). A Think Tank first for us, and a valuable opportunity for both HRDs and CTOs to work collaboratively to create an innovative approach to retaining and developing this crucial population of the workforce.
