Expand Your Tech Talent Pipeline – Strengthen the Austin Community Forum
March 23 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 amFree
The U.S. labor market has changed since 2020, leaving employers struggling to fill roles and retain employees, even as many job seekers remain unemployed. By moving from traditional hiring methods to skills-based practices, apprenticeship models, and investing in local talent by participating in industry sector partnerships, businesses can expand their applicant pools, fill positions more quickly, improve employee retention, and increase organizational diversity.
Join fellow tech executives online or in-person at an exclusive, upcoming event for tech employers on March 23. We will dive into case studies that highlight tangible business benefits when tech companies implement tools like:
- Skills-based hiring
- Apprenticeships vs. internships
- Sourcing candidates and skills validation techniques
- Preparing for a new strategy using design thinking
At this session we promise:
✔️ NSE – No Selling Environment: We are here to learn and gain genuine connections. We WILL, however, review no-cost resources for those employers interested in implementing some practices we’ll discuss during the roundtable.
✔️ Privacy and respect. This event will be recorded solely for the purpose of research and program creation. The conversation will not be shared with the public or registrants. A high-level recap will be shared with attendees without adding attribution to sensitive information.
✔️ An opportunity to collaborate. Come ready to ask questions and provide insight.
Additional details on skills-based practices and online resources may be found below. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org at Workforce Solutions Capital Area if you have any questions.
❗ Note: This roundtable is for tech employers or employers in other industries hiring for tech-related/IT roles. Employers of all sizes are welcome and encouraged to attend.
