Pre-Summit workshops have limited space and tickets are purchased separately from the main conference. Please see the Summit Workshops page to learn more and get your ticket.

How do you find people who can support your technical initiatives? What are the right roles, and how do you market the opportunities? If you’re a government agency trying to attract technical talent, you may find that the type of private-sector technologists you’re after are used to a very different workplace culture. Combine this with budget constraints and special merit rules, and it’s no wonder public sector employers can struggle to find and retain tech talent.

This workshop will focus on strategies to recruit and retain talent. Learn about how other governments have been able to create new roles for technologists, what roles they are creating, and how they are structuring their teams for success.

Government leadership, HR staff, CIOs interested in attracting technical talent.
