In 2017, more than 20 NVTC member companies joined forces in NVTC’s Tech Talent Employer Collaborative (TTEC) to address their technology workforce needs associated with two specific positions: cybersecurity engineers and software developers. NVTC staff facilitated a series of meetings and activities, applying a proven supply chain management best practice-based methodology to help drive the development of a regional workforce with the skills our tech employers need.
2017 TTEC accomplishments include:
- Forecasting of talent demands for both positions
- Establishing a shared set of competencies and requirements
- Analyzing the major sources of this talent and talent flows
- Identifying local Preferred Talent Providers
NVTC is excited to announce the continuation of the TTEC and its expansion, both in focus and participation. In 2018, the TTEC will continue its work, adding data analytics and network infrastructure while maintaining focus on cybersecurity and software development. The goal is to assist participating tech employers by increasing the number of qualified candidates to fill open positions in the region.
Can your company benefit from networking and strategizing with other local companies to produce improved workforce results?
HR/talent acquisition leaders knowledgeable about their organization’s current human capital demand and future needs are invited to join our kickoff meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at a location in the Tysons-Dulles corridor.
