The gap between IT job openings and the trained professionals qualified to fill them is widening. Businesses around the globe are particularly challenged by a pandemic which is further exacerbating demand for talented technicians in mission-critical areas, such as cybersecurity.
According to the 2020 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey, around 35% of entities are seeking cybersecurity experts as their top priority. Other in-demand technology skills are organizational change management (27%), enterprise architecture (23%), and technical architecture and advanced analytics (22%).
As demand for skilled technical professionals grows and the IT skills gap widens, CBTS is helping clients enhance and augment their IT teams, whether for a specific project or as an ongoing staff augmentation contract. CBTS can be part of your digital transformation by supplying highly-vetted, well-trained, certified IT specialists backed by an experienced team of technology pros. Clients value our advanced technical skill set as well as a meticulous management style brought to every project.
The CBTS suite of services begins with an assessment of your business and technology needs. As a top technology provider, CBTS offers a century of technical recruiting know-how, powered by a base of over 40,000 consultants. Additionally, it has access to more than 1,000 consultants available for deployment across all areas of IT to better serve the range of your organization’s IT skills gap.
CBTS recruiters prescreen would-be consultants on all necessary training and certifications. Over the course of a project, our consultants receive assistance from project leads, providing an additional support layer to streamline your enterprise’s path to success.
Each consultant is supported by a consultant care manager, or CCM, who handles administrative requirements such as timesheets, expenses, and scheduling. Flexible contracts allow for hourly hiring as well as contract-to-hire engagements typically lasting six months. CBTS also provides consultants as a direct placement resource where we will assist your internal HR efforts.
Regarding resource options, CBTS offers:
- Project-based consultants across multiple technologies for short- and long-term work. Our professionals are engaged on design, engineering, and installation where clients are billed hourly or on a fixed-price basis.
- Staffing that matches client requirements via proprietary and subscribed databases. CBTS utilizes the same diligence to pre-screen all resources before they are presented to clients for review.
- Permanent hire resources placed full-time at a customer site.
Vacant positions within an enterprise’s IT infrastructure can make reaching productivity goals difficult, and pandemic-related cutbacks pose a cost issue when hiring and maintaining an IT team. Therefore, it’s crucial for organizations to seek out top talent when considering the impact of the IT skills gap.
COVID-19 has people relying on technology—perhaps more than ever—meaning businesses require IT experts to efficiently manage new customer touchpoints. By partnering with CBTS, you will receive best-in-industry implementation of these new innovations. What’s more, our consultants bring thought leadership on strategic projects at a cost lower than pricey OEM consulting services.
