86% of hiring managers and technical recruiters feel it’s a challenge to find and hire software engineers, a survey reveals.
Today, over 3 in 4 job seekers consider diversity when deciding whether to accept a job offer. And almost a third wouldn’t apply to a job at a company where diversity is lacking. It comes as no surprise since more and more people have started to appreciate the value of diversity in their society.
So making your team more diverse can be vital in attracting top tech talents.
Creative thinking is essential when solving complex problems during the development, testing, or implementation stages. Innovative, out-of-the-box thinking may allow companies to offer winning solutions where conventional methods fail.
Diverse teams bring to the table various experiences and skills that will be hugely important when solving problems.
Diversity boosts innovation and creativity because people from all walks of life refer to their unique experiences and knowledge to spark new, innovative ideas.
Workplace diversity increases organizations’ morale and creates efficiency and effectiveness.
We get along pretty well in the office, as we can all communicate very well, even though my Armenian is different than the Armenian of my co-workers. Everyone knowing English is very convenient.
Shortly after moving to Armenia, I started working at Codeex. Being an ethnically Lebanese Armenian did help me in the working process, but the diverse environment with two different backgrounds and cultures was something I adapted to step by step.
I concluded that the more different I was, the more new things I learned from my colleagues, even surprisingly new things about myself! I have been working for years in the creative field, yet working in the tech sector challenged my performance.
I believe challenges bring the best out of oneself, whereas being a designer in a tech company lets me improve and use my creativity in ways I never had before.
I think working in a ‘colorful,’ diverse environment not only helps me grow in my career but also develops new characteristics in my personality, which I really like. With regard to my career, I learn how to effectively communicate with people coming from various cultural backgrounds, which is an essential skill in the IT market, as IT knows no borders, and software engineers should also develop the skills to work across countries.
As of my personal life, I believe every culture is essentially the collective experience of a whole nation, and how could getting familiar with such a huge experience leave no positive effects on one’s character?
