- More than ever, HR leaders are on the lookout to hire highly skilled people who can code -- and not just for IT departments.
- Coders may now be wanted across a spectrum of employers and entities within those employers, according to an expert in the SHRM article, including perhaps within HR itself.
- Fernando Espinosa of Sanford Rose Associates, an executive search firm based in Plano, Texas, told SHRM that the demand for workplace coders is high in many fields, and to make matters worse, there there is currently a shortage for that specific talent.
Apart from the competitive recruiting space, HR can grow its own coders. For example, Todd Rowley, a senior vice president at Cardinal Bank in Tysons Corner, Va., says HR leaders looking to add coders to their talent repertoire can develop employees through coding academies or community colleges in a "very quick and not cost-intensive way."
