Have you ever wondered what it takes to hire incredible talent? Have you been kept awake at night thinking of how to keep incredible talent once they are hired? Most managers and leaders have.

The most recent addition to the Stories from The IT Nation podcast, Attracting and Retaining Top Talent, may help your organization find, grow and thrive with the right individuals.

Recently Doug Westervelt, CEO of Portland Internetworks, sat down and discussed methods for attracting and retaining talent on The IT Nation Podcast by Connectwise. The IT industry is full of incredible talent and the demand for experienced professionals is at an all-time high. This reality places pressure on managed service providers and IT departments to utilize resources and time to ensure their teams are fulfilled at work.

There will never be one, end-all answer on how to retain the amazing people you hire once they are working for you. That being said, after 22 years as CEO of a growing IT company, Doug has had plenty of time to learn what technical professionals are looking for in their workplace. On the podcast, he shares all of his insights on the topic of finding great candidates and retaining them with ConnectWise Chief Talent Officer, Jennifer Locklear. We invite you to listen to his story and many others on the IT Nation Podcasts site, linked below. After you have listened, share your thoughts with us! We would love to hear your thoughts.
