Here’s how one tech company overcame talent shortages and grew 300 percent

The tech industry is growing like crazy! But there's a problem: talent to fill the growing positions that are being born. Eighty-three percent of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) struggle to find talent, according to a recent Gartner survey. That's not a problem for EduSource, an Indianapolis tech company that grew 300% in 2016. Jason Beutler, President of EduSource, has created a pool of young talent that he can hire as an apprentice for a two year time period, train and then hire full-time once they graduate college. Listen to how he did it, and what you can learn from EduSource.
