The global talent shortage reached a 15-year high by the third quarter of 2021, according to a recent Manpower Group report. And technology roles rank among the most in-demand. This puts the power in the hands of job seekers.

All that came as no shock to the participants in the recent closed-door Cloud Roundtable discussion at this fall’s Channel Partners Conference & Expo. Indeed, the IT talent shortage consumed quite a bit of the conversation. After all, multinational consulting firm Korn Ferry estimates that the talent shortage worldwide could impact more than 85 million people. The most affected industries will include IT and telecom. Overall, this will lead to the loss of trillions of dollars in economic opportunity unless employers get strategic.

In this second installment from the Cloud Roundtable, we share what two of the participants – representatives from managed service providers Ensono and AllCloud – talked about at length. Fellow channel partners can take their challenges and solutions into consideration.
