How To Recruit Software Engineers

By ATR International |   Tue, Apr 01, 2014 @ 08:52 AM

The search for the best ways of attracting and retaining talent is a never ending quest and there is no shortage of advice available on how to do it.  One nearly universally accepted truth is that it helps to know what your workers want. Money is not the only motivating factor and sometimes not the most important one. We’ve written about this before in Staffing 360 (Are you Building Temples? and Training and Opportunity Key to Employee Retention). Today we offer you a quick reminder of many of things we’ve reported before. Glassdoor has put together a good infographic specific to recruiting software engineers, and it concurs on many fronts with what we’ve said previously.

Training and Opportunity Key to IT Employee Retention

By ATR International |   Thu, Oct 31, 2013 @ 09:41 AM

Retaining employees is always a hot topic but never more so than when talent is scarce.  Even if you find a great new hire to replace someone who leaves, there is always time and expense related to training and getting them up to speed. Whether it’s a contractor who leaves before a project’s completion or a permanent employee who jumps to a rival company, retaining your critical IT personnel is important. It’s no wonder that managers are always thinking about how to keep their good employees happy and loyal.  I’ve written about this before, and almost felt that perhaps it was too soon to mention it again, but it’s been since last spring that I reminded our readers of some of the things they can do to address the issue of retention.
