Eight in ten UK CIOs concerned about tech talent

Research from Barclaycard revealed that more than three quarters of UK CIOs worry about recruiting and upskilling staff to ensure they have the advanced tech skills required for business success in today’s competitive and uncertain market.

As businesses strive to keep up with the pace of technological change, 78% of CIOs are concerned about ensuring that their teams continue to have the right knowledge, skills and experience. They see this as a key driver of business success, with 69% believing that the need to upskill employees in the technology department is of critical or high importance.

While three quarters are concerned about finding appropriate talent in today’s competitive market, more than half worry they won’t be able to recruit enough employees with the right technical skills after Britain leaves the European Union.
