Are you battle ready in the war for talent?
The skills shortage in Ireland shows no sign of going away. Many companies across industry sectors are now relying more and more on their technology to help differentiate and innovate in crowded and competitive markets. We hear a lot about digital transformation, about disruptive new companies like Uber and AirBnB, but this effects everyone. We can even see Ireland’s very own Ryanair, who now profess to be on a journey to becoming a Digital Travel company with an airline bolted on.
Quite simply, for almost every company, it is now the expertise of their technical resources that can be the difference between business success and business failure. It is now critical to attract and retain really good technical staff and put them at the heart of the business.
If success is about winning battles in the war for talent – would you go into battle without a plan? We wouldn’t either!
To prepare properly, we strongly believe that every company has to have a strong Talent Management Plan. This plan should cover how we identify the talent we need, how we attract this talent in, how we retain these people, and how we allow their talents to flourish.
We have been using this in Ergo for the last number of years and it is becoming a game changer in how we drive our business. This is not a quick fix it does take time to embed in an organisation but the benefits are huge over the longer term.
Why choose Ergo's IT Resourcing over traditional recruitment agencies:
If you are looking for technical expertise to fill technical roles within your organisation, there are three good reasons why you should choose Ergo’s IT Resourcing division over traditional recruitment agencies:
1. We have credibility when it comes to technology
For over 20 years we have grown and thrived by implementing ICT services and solutions for local and global companies that have helped drive business success. From managed services around day-to-day IT functions to transformational cloud services, we understand leading-edge technologies and their impact.
2. Client companies trust us
Our clients know us well through deeply forged relationships where we often fulfil a role as the go-to-partner for technology services and solutions. Above all, it’s our ability to align powerful technologies to strategic business goals that wins trust from some of the biggest and most successful companies in Ireland.
3. Job candidates trust us
We take time to get to know our candidates. Through our talent management planning, we take time to get to know people. They trust us because they know we have their interests at heart. They know we will go out of our way to find them a role that matches their skills and advances their career prospects.
Time for disruption
Clients come to us for managed resources because we add value at a time when the traditional approach to technical recruitment looks increasingly inadequate. They know that we’ll understand their project requirements, and underwrite the quality of the people we provide and the work they carry out.
We know from experience that the best employees are always the ones who fit in with the culture as well as the skillsets. Technology projects are a team effort and depend on like-minded people to get the job done. It’s not something that recruitment agencies will pay much attention to.
At Ergo we passionately believe that we have a duty to provide the best possible outcomes for our clients and our candidates. To win the war for talent, you have to be battle ready and this comes through careful planning, an experienced hiring team, and cutting through the noise to find the brightest people in the market.
