Workforce is a top issue for local government CIOs. In the past, job security and solid pensions lured candidates to public sector careers, but wage stagnation, pension benefit reforms and furloughs have done little to attract Millennials to government work. At the same time, a recent CDG survey found 21 percent of city CIOs project they will lose up to 10 percent of their workforce due to retirement in the next year.

Local government leaders – many of whom are increasing their workforce size for the first time in several years – have an opportunity to rethink how they attract IT employees and adopt innovative staffing options.

Join us on October 24 at 11 a.m. pacific/2 p.m. eastern to hear what other cities and counties are doing to better attract top IT talent. Strategies to be discussed include:
• Better engaging employees by emphasizing the rewards of government work
• Finding top talent by collaborating with universities
• Helping employees be more productive with modern technology tools
