Government agencies are feeling the pain of the talent shortage as much as private companies. With declining budgets, high turnover, and competition from larger tech firms, securing top talent is one of the public agencies' biggest challenges. Here we discuss how government agencies can address the IT talent shortage to better serve their communities.
Top IT teams across the board are understaffed and underserved. IT leaders need to understand this and ease the burden on their staff to improve job satisfaction and retain critical employees. While it may be challenging to find additional employees to ease the burden, here are some ways technology can help.
- Implement IT automation
- Don't know which IT process to automate first? Process mining is the perfect place to start
- Utilize Low-Code-No-Code development
- Outsource to an IT managed services provider
Provide In-Demand Benefits
Government agencies are competing with private companies for top IT talent. Consider these in-demand benefits to remain competitive, some of which are harder to come by in private companies.
- Flexible work options (hybrid/remote)
- Healthcare benefits
- Diversity and inclusion initiatives
- Employee development and skill training
