Learn how to attract, and keep, the best team for YOUR company, even in today’s competitive market!

We currently live in an impossibly tight market for IT Talent. It is extremely tough to assemble a top-notch QA / Automation / DevOps team. Sometimes, it’s even tougher to keep the “peeps” on that team together! This can make or break a successful SDLC organization!

In this presentation, we’ll cover strategies on how to build the best team possible for YOUR organization, with tips on how to make talented individuals fall in love with your team, the right questions to ask in an interview to ensure you are hiring the right people, and what to do once your team is built to keep your high-performers happy and motivated to stay with your team over the long haul! We’ll provide a best practices guide as a takeaway after the presentation is complete.
