HR in IT

Chairs: Wolfgang Traunmüller (ITC), Ronald Mitterndorfer (NHR)

Aims of the AG.IT-HR working group

The shortage of skilled workers in IT is slowing the growth of some companies in the sector. Finding good employees and encouraging them to commit to the company long-term is proving an increasingly complex task. To meet this challenge, it is becoming more and more important to look at the personnel situation in its entirety and to offer employees the chance to add to and make full use of their skill sets. At regular exchange experience meetings, learn from CEOs and HR managers how they deal with the personnel issue in their companies.

In specialist workshops, discuss what potential and possibilities you have to make your company interesting to skilled professionals by introducing and implementing the necessary HR measures.
