Talent Attraction in the Tech Industry

Universum’s Talent Insights Series takes a probing look at the attitudes of Millennials finishing their university studies. Among the questions the report explores:

  • What career goals do recent graduates prioritize?
  • What specific qualities matter most about an employer’s reputation?
  • What type of work environment and culture do recent graduates seek out?
  • Which channels do students value most when researching future employers and jobs?

On an annual basis Universum gathers insights on the career expectations of one million career-seekers from 55 countries. With this perspective, the Talent Insights Series analyzes the responses of  students from universities across the world. How does top talent think and behave differently, and what are the implications for employers trying to court them?
For employers aiming to hire university graduates, the Talent Insights series offers direction about how to:

  • Define talent attraction strategy
  • Position employer branding
  • Plan what internal changes are needed to create a more attractive work environment for young professionals
  • Help executives understand how to customize messages by market

Talent Insights Series: Talent Attraction in the Tech Industry
There are few industries in which the search for top talent is as critical – and as difficult – as in the technology industry. In the UK, where close to 8 percent of all workers are employed by tech companies, leaders say a shortage of skilled professionals is threatening future growth. Within Talent Attraction in the Tech Industry, Universum aims to uncover what graduates are looking for in future employers in the technology sector and the implications companies face that seek to hire them. We then examine how companies can translate these findings into actionable steps for HR, recruiting and C-level leadership.
