Recruiting and Retaining Technical Talent Today and Beyond 
An Interactive Forum, jointly hosted by Society for Information Management (SIM)  and TechServe Alliance.

November 8, 2022 

The pandemic has wrought tremendous disruption to the business landscape and the world of work.  Against the backdrop of the perennial shortage of technical talent, the expectations of IT and engineering professionals has changed dramatically.  

At the Forum, CIOs, CTOs and other IT leaders will have an opportunity to join with technology staffing executives in an interactive exploration of key trends impacting the recruiting and retention of technical talent: 

  • Increased expectations of IT and engineering professionals to dictate how, when, and where they will work 
  • The challenge of maintaining company culture in remote and hybrid work environments 
  • Expectations of greater workforce diversity and social responsibility 


Additionally, the forum will feature keynotes by a highly engaging economist and a thought leader in employee engagement in a remote and isolated world as well as candid conversations that get to the heart of what really matters to key stakeholders in attracting, hiring, and retaining IT and engineering professionals.
