Tech Talent – A Changing Tech Landscape, New strategies to attract and maintain tech talent

Featured image

As we all know, the tech industry is changing at a fast pace. Big tech parties, including Microsoft, Meta, HP, Spotify, and Amazon, have been laying off workers by the thousands in the last months. What lies behind the wave of layoffs? Is it a correction for the exponential growth of recent years or are there other underlying factors?

Despite the recent layoffs in the tech industry human capital remains one of the most important factors for the growth of tech companies and there is still a great demand for tech talent. Employees still have the luxury to choose from offers from multiple tech companies. Employees are increasingly making decisions about their careers based on the impact and the sustainable strategy of their future employer rather than the salary or bonuses they will receive. Other relevant factors are the ability to influence the policy of the company and to create a positive impact on society and on well-being instead of merely helping the company achieve its revenue targets.

In this tech table, we have gathered tech specialists from Sweden and the Netherlands to discuss which lessons the recent development in the tech sector can be learned.  Are you as an employee a good fit for the company and is the company as an employer a good fit for you? Labor has gotten a lot more expensive, and companies have to hire the best, but is that enough?  Companies also have to rethink how they reskill and upskill their teams. People are the most important factor for a company’s growth. How to find the right people and which strategies do you need to build stronger, more innovative, and inspiring teams, How to maintain and attract new tech talent?

Swedish Chamber of Commerce Women in Tech

Featured image

What are the possibilities and challenges for women tech entrepreneurs in this time of pandemic and a booming demand for tech solutions and a growing tech industry? What impact does it have on women tech entrepreneurs? How do we create diverse workplaces where women are free to fulfill their professional potential and have the equal access to resources, knowledge and networks as men?

Today, women are still challenged in their pursuit and progression within the tech sector. We understand the importance of gender equality and diversity, but how could you implement policies promoting it at your company? What is it about a company that makes it uninviting for women to apply? Why are tech women still under-represented at most companies? It doesn’t make any sense because obviously there is no difference in skills or competence. They’re out there, but how can you get them into your organization?

In this webinar we bring together experts and women leaders in the tech community for an inspiring session about diversity, inclusion, inspiration and disruption.  Welcome to join!

Speakers list:

Dr Cara Antoine, Managing Director Digital Transformation, IG&H | Global Women in Tech, The Netherlands“Where are all the Allies and Role Models needed to encourage more women into Tech?”

Ariane Bucquet-Pousette, Project Manager Start-Ups Invest Stockholm
“Female-founded startups and the initiative A Woman’s Place as well as actions for supporting startups in the corona pandemic.”

Ruth de Jager, Country Manager Netherlands Storytel
“Storytel is successfully digitising the listening and reading
experience for a younger generation. Especially young women use Storytel
on a daily basis. A diverse workforce and management team is of the
essence staying close to our subscribers.”

Indra Sharma, Author, Investor
I will share knowledge on key parameters needed to become a
successful entrepreneur and what obstacles women entrepreneurs face.
Also, share views on why diversity within entrepreneurship is essential
for equality across industries, sectors and society.”
