According to a recent EDUCAUSE study, IT staff and organizations are being asked to adjust to increased IT consumerization, more options for managing and sourcing technologies and staff, a broader interest in IT’s transformative potential, and decreased resources. As a result, IT departments are being asked to bring additional skills to the table, such as strategic thinking and planning, the ability to initiate and maintain relationships with various institution partners, and other professional skills to manage multiple, diverse and complex projects, infrastructure and services. How do IT management and staff adjust to these changes and how can HR help advise, support and equip them with the necessary tools?

During this webinar:

  • Find out what skills are most important for IT staff.
  • Learn about the current demographics of this group.
  • Hear about the biggest drivers of retention.
  • Get ideas for desired professional development activities and other support that HR can provide.
  • Discuss ways to develop and sustain an effective partnership between HR and IT.
