Solving a Business Problem
Denver is experiencing a tech talent crisis. Not only is there a shortage of talent, the current workforce lacks diversity. Current hiring practices often eliminate highly-qualified candidates from non-traditional sources, even though 40% of IT jobs can be done without a four-year degree.
The limited candidate pool stymies corporate efforts to create diverse teams that research has repeatedly shown will produce better outcomes and stronger organizational performance. We believe that Denver’s IT talent shortage can be solved by developing a talent pipeline of skilled professionals from often-overlooked communities.
TECH TALENT SHORTAGE
- By 2020, there will be a million-person tech talent shortage in the U.S.
- Denver tech growth exploded in 2018. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows employment in the sector grew 7.5% compared to just 2% for all other industries.
- In one recent month, there was a shortage of 8,607 people in Denver alone.
