Mark Dorman, CEO at SThree, has spoken to Information Age about why the economic recovery post COVID-19 is not doom and gloom for tech talent.

He explained why digital transformation is more critical now than it has ever been and how technology can enable the flexibility needed to fill talent gaps.

In the article, Mark also shared his opinion on the importance of data science and why businesses need STEM experts with the skills to crunch data and draw conclusions quickly.

“Since lockdown measures were introduced, organisations have adapted overnight to remote working causing a need to reshape internal and customer interfaces”, Mark commented.

“This is not the first public health and economic crisis, but it certainly is the first one where tech has become critical for business to continue, with infrastructure, IT-hardened remote working and Life Sciences all having a contribution to play in solving the pandemic — elevating the status of STEM skills and accelerating the digitisation of the workplace amongst employers globally.”
