Why The Tech Skills Gap Is A Myth
How employers can tap into underutilized talent with non-traditional hiring models. According to a report published in 2021 by Skillsoft Global Knowledge, 76% of IT decision-makers report “critical skills gaps” on their teams. When asked to explain these gaps, hiring managers typically say that they cannot find skilled candidates.
These shortages have serious consequences. They increase stress on existing employees, lower productivity, and compromise teams’ ability to deliver on quality and business objectives.
The concept of a skills gap as it pertains to finding tech talent is not new but deeper investigation shows that the skills gap is a myth, and that the discussion should focus more on the lack of opportunity.
