Get the Most out of Talent: Join Our Talent Broadcast

- June 25, 2010 - 0 Comments

There’s been lots of discussion in the news lately about rising unemployment numbers, both in the United States and around the world. But interestingly, a recent study conducted by IDC and Bain & Company projects a gap of nearly 3 million skilled IT networking professionals globally by 2012. 

What’s the reason for that projected gap? The global workforce is getting older, and technology is becoming more complex and more integrated into business operations. As a result, the demand for technical knowledge and business acumen is rising quickly.

To help partners attract the right talent, Cisco has developed CiscoFit4Talent (CCO login required), a comprehensive approach to talent management. Cisco Fit4Talent supports efforts throughout the entire lifecycle of your employees with an emphasis on business alignment and leadership at all phases. It can help you get your talent into shape, train your talent to succeed, and help you achieve greater results from a comprehensive approach and investment.

Want to learn more about this new program? Read on to find out our upcoming broadcast.

Join the Cisco Partner Talent team in its first “Let’s Talk Talent” IPTV broadcast on July 7 at 2 p.m. GMT/9 a.m. EST. This live broadcast is available to all Emerging, European, US, and Canada partners. 

During the broadcast, Nscglobal, a Cisco Gold Certified Partner, will share how they overcame talent-related challenges and increased business productivity by adopting a holistic talent management strategy.

To kick things off, nscglobal will provide a detailed account of how revamping their talent strategy enabled them to recruit 60 multilingual candidates with Cisco CCNA certifications within three months to fill positions in the Czech Republic.
