Group will bring closer collaboration among academic, employer, government and other communities working to develop more tech talent
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. – CompTIA, the nonprofit association for the information technology (IT) industry and workforce, announced today the creation of a Workforce Solutions team to drive closer collaboration among groups working to ease the tech talent crunch.
The new team brings together CompTIA executives and staff who work with key influencers and decision makers in the academic, employer, government and workforce communities.
“Each of these markets is going through great transition as they individually take on the challenge of developing more talent to fill current and future needs for technology professionals and digital workers,” said Nancy Hammervik, chief solutions officer at CompTIA who leads the Workforce Solutions team.
Over the next decade, projections indicate demand for tech workers will grow at twice the rate of the overall labor force. Navigating this talent constraint era will require innovative approaches and close collaboration among interested parties.
