HANOVER, MD – June 29, 2009 – TEKsystems’®, Vice President – Financial Services, Kevin Phelps provides industry expertise in TechWeb’s Information & Technology article, “Cream of the Crop: Tough times are good times for CIO’s to focus on acquiring and holding on to top IT talent.”
Phelps was quoted several times offering advice to Insurance CIO’s who want to ensure they have the right teams in place during a down economy. Phelps counsels, “Given higher levels of unemployment insurers who can afford to invest in talent have an opportunity to “top grade” their IT organizations, both through recruiting high-performers and removing dead wood.” With IT unemployment levels as low as 2.5 to 2.7 percent; Phelps recommends that CIO’s should ask themselves, “Who are my keepers? Who are the people that I want to ride out this storm with?”
