Winter 2017

Here we are at the end of another year, and as I reflect on our accomplishments, I feel gratitude towards our clients who have helped us achieve excellence and success. This is a special milestone for PSCI, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. That would never have happened without my dedicated staff and the loyalty of our clients, some who we have worked with since our first year in business. For that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

As the current tech landscape continues to become more competitive than ever, we continue to see recurring themes: the attraction and retention of top talent. In this issue of PSCI’s IT Industry Rundown, we’ve expounded on the ideas of how company culture is a key factor for attracting top talent and have listed ways your company is best fit to retain that talent. We’ve also included a few articles from key industry publications that reinforce those ideas and more.

I hope you find these insights helpful and I wish you nothing but the best during this holiday season and through the year ahead! Please connect with us on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter for even more industry information.

"PSCI contractors are happy and that shows in how they approach their jobs. You can tell they are supported by a top-notch team at all levels. This gives me peace of mind, because a happy consultant stays and performs. When exceptional talent is constrained, this is very important."
