Bell Employs Bold Moves to Stem Talent Loss in IT
 "As a business that relies heavily on innovation, Bell is keenly aware how difficult it is to recruit the best resources in this industry," says Stéphane Boisvert, President of Bell Canada Enterprise business. "Our pool of talent is declining. Falling enrolment in IT programs is now forcing companies to take more intensive, drastic measures to recruit the best talent. The problem is national in scope, and it requires a strong, concerted reaction. To turn the tide, we are going to need determination, a strategic plan, and leadership from both the private and public sectors."

Rob Long, Manager - Community Relations, Nortel

Educating the Next Generation of Canadian IT Leaders: A Shared Responsibility
The ICT industry is full of companies who are making a conscious effort to address the declining interest in ICT as a career. They are doing this by taking their message directly to young Canadians. Nortel is a great example of this approach. The company runs its own programs like Nortel LearniT, which is Nortel’s key initiative aimed at educating students and teachers about the positive influence digital technologies can have on learning.




Raising In Italics: How to build a robust talent pool

TECH WE LIKE: Here's a contribution - appropriate to this Education issue of ITAC Online - from ITAC Director David Ticoll regarding a new report from the British ICT sect oral council: "E-skills UK, the British sector council for the ICT industry, recently published Now We Are 5," an online report on its accomplishments of its first five years in existence. The format is an online "flickable" book that's user friendly, well executed, and effectively multimedia. It exemplifies powerful technology wedded to people-centric design. In a mere five years, e-skills UK has implemented an impressive array of real world programs to turn the ICT labour market around - programs that we in Canada ought to learn from." If you encounter a new technological innovation that you think is noteworthy please share it with us by sending a link or illustration and a brief explanation of why you like it to If we use your contribution we will send you something useful from the ITAC swag-bag.
