If you wish you were happier at your job or you had better workers, you need to tune into IT Life Radio July 15 at 2 p.m. EDT.

It doesn't matter whether you are a hiring manager or an IT pro, the skills gap is changing the way you look for a job. IT Pros know their skills are in demand and salaries are going up. Managers know they need to work hard to get and keep the best talent.

IT pros are in a great situation now. Salaries are rising. Unemployment is low. And yet, they're not all that happy with their jobs. When IT pros practically have their pick of jobs right now, why can't they be happy?

Hiring managers only get one shot to find the right person or they can suffer for months or years with the wrong person. How do they get better at finding the right people?

Whether you are an IT Pro or a manager, this is where culture comes in.

We don't mean culture the way some people mean it. It isn't hiring another white dude, because your office is full of white dudes and he will "fit in." It is about an honest and deep connection between the employee and the place of business. Does it sound like a dating app commercial? It should, because you can get paid to work anywhere, but you'll be much happier and productive if you love where you work.

That's especially important since employee engagement is at an all-time low.

So how do we tell the difference between real culture and what most people mean by culture? We get an expert. Sarah Nahm, CEO of recruiting firm Lever, will come on IT Life radio to talk about:

  • Changing trends in hiring and job search
  • How you can leverage culture to find a better job
  • How managers need to start using culture to find and retain talent
  • What culture really means

Before Lever, Nahm worked in product at Google and studied design and engineering at Stanford University.

If you want to be happier in your job or find the right person to fit your open position, you need to tune in Wednesday, July 15 at 2 p.m. to make culture work for you. It just might change your whole outlook on hiring and job seeking.

So true
It's so true that the culture of a place can really impact how you feel working there. In a plave where the company and the management team feels like  they care about you and that they treat you like a professional and that they are excited about what the company is doing can make a real difference.

Development
Technology, globalization and business models, etc., are advancing and changing the shape of modern organization. Culture cannot remain the same in such a situation. For some organizations, these changes have brought new life and opportunities. However, it has also brought a lot suffering for others.  Either way, the genie is out of the bottle and it's going to be a great radio show.
