Ready to recruit in IT: are you connected with the right tools?

Recruit in ITThe challenge? To be more open and connected sharing information between departments and corporate geographies through intranets and cloud resources. Automattic, the company behind content management and blogging platform WordPress, as well as a host of cloud-based social content services, is at the extreme end of this trend. Its workforce is distributed around the world, working from home using online collaborative communications tools.

Another emerging approach to secure the best IT talent is to bring IT itself to bear, through the use of social physics where big data on human behavior influences corporate strategy. Xerox has been using this method for new hires and has seen a fall of 20 percent in the staff attrition rate during its pilot period.

It seems that with skilled workers at a premium, and technology on hand, attracting, engaging and retaining talent is swiftly becoming a science, rather than an art.
