VEF: Winning The War For Talent

Vancouver’s tech sector is growing at breakneck pace. Record capital is being raised, our global prominence as a top tech hub is being acknowledged and the city is now home to the highest rate of head office growth in the country. Major players like Amazon and Microsoft are growing their footprints and many more are on the way. Hiring is more competitive than ever and like trees are to forestry and metals are to mining, people are the precious commodities of tech.

What are companies doing to set themselves apart? How had talent acquisition changed? What practices do companies have to retain top performers? And how do we address the identified gap of 30,500 tech jobs that are projected to go unfilled by 2012?

Aly Sidi, Director of R&D, Samsung Mobile
