A Morgan McKinley consultant approached me a while back about a position. It wasn't for me, but I remembered how well they treated me and conducted themselves.

Tech professionals tend to want to work for a company that pays them well, offers them upskilling opportunities and allows them to work on exciting projects with cutting-edge technology. The most effective way of recruiting the best tech talent is to work with a tech recruitment agency. Specialist IT recruiters understand what job seekers are looking for from a new company, know the ins and outs of certain areas of tech and will be able to source people to match your unique requirements from their vast networks of skilled professionals.
Yes, the ever-increasing demand for digital projects has led to a widespread shortage of appropriately skilled tech professionals. This poses an issue not only for the businesses who require the talent, but for the progression of the tech sector as a whole. Movement across countries has helped in the past, but long-term, a more sustainable solution of training and qualifications is required - some nations are taking steps to improve this, though it will take time to have an influence in workplaces around the world.
Beyond the obvious competitive compensation and benefits packages, tech employees strongly value skills development, continuous learning and professional growth, as well as the opportunity to work with top-of-the-line technology stacks on exciting and evergreen projects.
Knowing what employees want from an employer, value in their careers and like to experience from a recruitment process will help companies adjust their offerings so as to be more attractive. A good recruiter will have a conversation with potential tech candidates to really understand what they are looking for and will convey that to potential employers. That is why working with a specialised IT recruitment agency will put you in the strongest possible position to be able to attract and hire talented tech professionals.
Due to the skills shortage, hiring tech talent is incredibly competitive. This has meant companies have to be flexible with their requirements and adjust their offerings to be more enticing - salaries have been inflated and show no sign of slowing. Most of the best tech talent is likely to be passive (not actively looking for a new job), so using an IT recruitment agency will give you greater access to those individuals.
Technology and IT salaries can vary significantly. Overall, the average IT salary in Canada is $76,000.
