SHRM Sez: ‘SKILLS Shortage’ is Primary Recruiting Issue

SHRM Sez:  ‘SKILLS Shortage’ is Primary Recruiting Issue

In the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) recently released, “2019 State of the Workplace” report, among other interesting data points:  75% of those having difficulty recruiting believe there is a skills shortage among their applicants.

This is not surprising, of course.  But SHRM’s report underscores the issue.

Solutions?  SHRM shares several potential solutions for the ‘gap’ problems identified, including:  “… better preparing the youngest workers through collaboration with educational institutions and recruiting from nontraditional sources such as people with criminal backgrounds and military veterans.”

On it.

The International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP) programs are working to support skills development and cybersecurity training in collaboration with federally-recognized and certified educational institutes across the country, skills certification providers, and yes – ICMCP is targeting and working DIRECTLY with “non-traditional sources” in the cybersecurity field:  Minorities & Women.

Achieving the consistent representation of women and minorities in cybersecurity through programs designed to foster recruitment, inclusion and retention – one person at a time.
