Re-imagining Building a Talent Pipeline

Some say Charlotte is the next Silicon Valley — but the one thing slowing the process is qualified tech talent. Betsy Hauser and Tech Talent South (TTS) are changing that by creating a new pipeline to help build the workforce. TTS does that by taking people in nontraditional roles and giving them the technology skills they need to fill specific roles. Most recently TTS has teamed up with Lowe’s Home Improvement as the retail company works to grow their technology workforce. Jeff Damian, Vice President of Product and Technology for Lowe’s, says this kind of collaboration and this kind of modernized workflow for building the workforce is a game changer.
