Why is it so difficult to find the right people to fill IT positions?

Where do you look when your company wants a new pipeline of diverse talent?

What are other innovative companies doing to find a competitive advantage in hiring?

York Solutions is hosting an upcoming webinar that will answer these questions and address common hiring pain points. The 45-minute webinar will be held on November 8 at 11:30 a.m. Central, with 10 minutes for open questions at the end of the presentation.

The reality is that many companies struggle to find qualified talent to fill open IT and tech positions. Traditional hiring practices often overlook candidates who don’t match a narrow set of criteria – and your company misses out on potential employees who would strengthen and diversify your team.

York Solutions’ Barriers to Entry (B2E) Program has developed a solution to this widespread problem. B2E is a paid training program specifically geared toward helping stay-at-home parents, veterans, and caregivers return to the workforce in a career in IT.

“We see that when companies look outside of their typical hiring box, they gain a huge competitive advantage,” said VP of Barriers to Entry Silvia Hinton. “It’s a smart business move. Just look at the numbers to see the opportunity. Only 36% of IT jobs are held by people of color; 93% of highly qualified women who have ‘off-ramped’ their careers want to return to full-time work, but only 40% do so successfully; veterans face a higher unemployment than the national average.”
