The Tech Shortage Challenge

Over the last few years, there has been a lot of talk about the tech shortage epidemic in the US and Canada and how challenging it is to find qualified IT employees.  The sure and constant stream of new tech vacancies appearing daily on the leading job posting and recruitment sites can confirm this. In fact, this is a worldwide trend, with countries such as Switzerland declaring a shortage of 40,300 specialists in the information and communication technology sector (ICT) by 2026. The increased digitalization of all segments of our society will guarantee this employment sector to grow, but will we ever be able to catch up with the pace?  The question becomes how to face this tech shortage challenge and find the right tech talent for your company?

The most recent trend that has been used by many companies is outsourcing its tech talent to Europe. In 2016, Deloitte’s 2016 Global Outsourcing Survey reported 65% of companies that outsource do so in Europe.  This trend is even more evident with East Central European countries that have a significant pool of technical and engineering, English speaking graduates.

Culturally more aligned with Western Europe and North American mindset, this allows for a greater capacity to collaborate on sophisticated and innovative projects.

One of the leading choices among these countries is Serbia. A foremost source of highly skilled tech talent, high English proficiency, it also has the lowest overall turnover rate of tech employees in Europe overall, second only to Finland.
