Tech 15' Podcast: Opening Up the Middle

How can existing talent help solve a company’s skills gap? Host Emma Crosby talks to ManpowerGroup Chief Commercial Officer and President, North America Becky Frankiewicz, LVMH's VP Digital Innovation & Head of Crypto & Metaverse Nelly Mensah, and Atos CTO Zeina Zakhour about how to tap into workforce potential.

One in five employers can’t find the tech talent they need. Frankiewicz explains how organizations can turn to existing talent for the roles that they are finding hardest to fill by ‘opening up the middle’. This was one of the action points that emerged from ‘‘The New Age of Tech Talent”, a recent report from Experis, that asks how we can transform tech talent to meet demand. Frankiewicz also offers strategies to tap workforce potential and reskill employees to fill gaps and meet the challenges ahead. 

Mensah talks about the new job skills required for metaverse and web 3. She shares how important it is to develop people within the company to fill these positions. 

Zakhour discusses how Atos is ‘opening up the middle’ with an internal recruitment initiative called ‘Internal First’ and with its Cyber Academy which is designed to help develop cyber talent from within.
