Attracting, hiring, and retaining technical talent continues to be incredibly competitive in today's economy. Candidates are aware of this competition among employers, and it has changed what talent looks for when joining a company and what motivates them to accept an offer and stay with an organization.

As a large provider of technology products and services, we are interested to learn what we can do to best position ourselves to attract and retain technical talent in the modern workforce. Specifically, we are interested in sourcing ideas for roles within our technical pre-sales, solution architecture, technology engineering, technology field sales, IT, and digital groups.
