• The finest thing that leaders of organizations can do for their employees is to ensure that their workplace does not serve as a source of undue stress and aggravation.
  • A candidate stays in a company because of an efficient management, good work culture, growth opportunities, and an overall employee experience.

Being a corporate leader and a thought leader comes with the unavoidable responsibility of always being on the lookout for new talent and the ideal applicant. It is not as straightforward as one might think; it involves more than just reading through resumes and holding interviews. When faced with difficult circumstances, filling the available positions is even more important.

How IT Orgs Can Find and Retain the Best Candidate

Although “the Great Resign” has made it more challenging to hire workers, there are several things to consider that contribute to continued staffing challenges.

To begin, companies put much effort into keeping their present staff. The following guidelines need to be followed if you want to keep your staff:

Culture: People tend to remain loyal to organizations led by effective managers and leaders while fleeing hostile settings. For this reason, leaders should delegate authority to their teams and provide their employees the autonomy that will ultimately result in increased job satisfaction. The way the employees are treated by their management is a huge deciding factor for them.

Growth: An organization should allow its employees to grow in their careers and personal lives by fostering a culture of lifelong learning, providing many opportunities for professional development, and promoting internally regularly.

Experience as an employee: The attitudes of other team members, the availability of technical help, the capacity to get basic tasks done when they need it, and the work cultures of the corporation will all play a part in determining whether employees remain or go.

When filling open positions, companies should utilize best practices to attract talent, such as:

  • Monitor reputation on sites like Glassdoor and do some damage control
  • Don’t forget to look from within and understand demands for job requirements
  • Avoid perfectionism in skillsets desired, and maintain diversity and balance

Hire the right manager for a hybrid workplace

The two years of challenging times resulting from the pandemic have taken their toll on the employees. It was a confluence of factors, including strenuous labor needs, outside pressures brought on by the state of the economy, and the general dissatisfaction in society.

The best thing that leaders of organizations can do for their employees is to ensure that their workplace does not serve as a source of undue stress and aggravation. The selection of a capable manager who is up to the task at hand is one thing that we can do to lend a hand in this transition and, in the end, ensure that our approach will provide the desired results.

What is the right manager?

The ideal manager is someone who can get the best work out of their team by encouraging them to think more, continually improve systems, and provide sustainable output. Additionally, the ideal managers will promote the Employee Value Proposition, often known as the EVP, of your firm.

Even though many companies do not have formally documented EVPs, selecting the most qualified manager for the job may have a significant impact. The best leaders are those who are focused on people, who have empathy for their staff, and who can connect with them on an emotional level.

How to support the right managers?

Finding and employing the most qualified manager is not sufficient on its own. The company should be responsible in ensuring that they are successful by supplying them with resources for training, reducing the amount of work they have to do, and granting them greater independence.


Most influential leaders are confronted with the challenge of updating their skill sets to adapt to changing conditions in the workplace. The abilities of leaders need to be honed appropriately. The training instructors must have a module to assist the leaders in putting what they have learned into practice.

It would be of immense assistance to organize a leadership roundtable where leaders may engage in practice or openly address the issues.

Lightening workload:

Our leaders require more time and space to develop, perfect their skills, and carry out their responsibilities as human-centered leaders. You should be able to recognize your limitations and delegate work appropriately when the situation calls for it.

Is it the right time to rightsource?

There are times when it is beneficial to do some services in-house, and there are other instances when it is helpful to seek assistance from external parties. This has always been the method, but recently, some have used the phrase “rightsourcing” to refer to it.

Each company’s answer will differ because of the many different aspects. However, the following are some factors to keep in mind:

  • What are the main factors that will influence the decision?
  • Is there a clear tipping point for shifting from an MSSP to an in-house team?
  • What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of an in-house IT team?
  • Do you have any advice for companies trying to make this decision?
