CIOs Got Talent: Ensuring Your Organization Has the Best People

Think Tank - 2:00 pm - 2:25 pm

While new technology and solutions can help CIOs make faster, better and more precise decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CIOs need to be great recruiters of talent, but even more important they must grow the skills and capabilities of their team by providing engaging and challenging opportunities. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent, but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an afterthought.


  1. Organizations need to strategize how to find and retain talented people. 
  2. Employees want an environment where they can advance their skill, feel appropriately challenged and have career opportunities. 
  3. A responsibility of the CIO and their leadership teams is to find top talent inside and outside their organization and provide them a path towards individual excellence
