• Businesses need to invest in IT talent to cater for growing internet users

        • Following on from our report on Monday that revealed higher internet saturation is changing way employees learn develop, Farida Gibbs, CEO and Founder of staffing and project solutions firm, Gibbs S3, gives her views on the matter.

          She said, “people and devices are becoming increasingly connected, therefore businesses need talent who have the necessary expertise.  A workforce is the biggest asset to support an IT infrastructure and the digital development allows companies to carve a competitive edge for themselves.



          “With more internet users, companies need to understand the opportunities digital innovations bring to create services which are compatible with different devices. They need a workforce with the necessary expertise and skills to create what is expected by their customer base.”

          Farida continued, “traditional forms of recruitment on their own do not offer the flexibility or expertise required to complete such agile projects. To cope with consumer demand from the digital native generation, a hybrid approach to workforce solutions is necessary. Combining traditional recruitment, with project consultancy, creates a blended approach that gives businesses the flexibility they need to undergo necessary digital projects.”
