It’s no secret that the data center industry is struggling to draw a fresh pipeline of talent up through the ranks. Combined with the increasing need for more people, the sector is arguably at a tipping point in terms of workforce.
In this fireside chat, previous winners of the DCD>Young Mission Critical Engineer award will discuss what drew them to the industry, their experiences so far and what needs to change. They will share practical insights on what draws potential talent to digital infrastructure, and how the sector can improve on this. What do people really look for when deciding which career path to pursue and how can the data center industry improve on this? How do we raise the profile of data centers? And what steps can the sector take to retain people once they arrive and prevent them jumping ship?
