Let's talk about the workforce issues

NASCIO Executive Director Doug Robinson joins the Priorities Podcast this week to discuss the findings in the group’s annual member survey, which was presented this week at its conference in Louisville, Kentucky. Chief among the survey's findings were serious concerns about how state governments will recruit and retain IT workers. Between competition from the private sector, government’s lengthy hiring processes, the expectations of Gen Z workers and a legacy of unappealing, wonky job titles, CIOs see many challenges ahead, Robinson says. “The old joke is that state government is still in the post-and-pray mode,” he says. “They’re posting jobs and they’re praying that somebody is going to accept it. But they can’t do that if the title is ‘data processing specialist three,’ which means nothing.”     Listen to the podcast.
