[-Boston-] Ontario Needs Thousands of IT professionals

Employee commitment levels are of particular importance to IT because of the sector’s high level of expertise, focus on intellectual property and chronic labour shortages. Among the contributing factors to this churn are a lack of training for workers, murky career paths and poor change management.

“(Change management) is not just about layoffs, it involves communication at the department level and making sure employees understand where the organization is going, especially in tough times… (companies need to) really focus on the techies in the organization — they are the ones leading innovation,”

“If you’re the head of an IT company, one of the realities you have to work with is watching your whole means of production walk off the premises everyday. You need to know that you’re doing everything you possibly can to make sure they come back tomorrow. This is the reality for us.”
