Jen Snow on The Secret Weapon of a New Generation of Tech Leaders
If there's been one universal truth about the world of work post-COVID, it’s this,” writes Jen Snow. “It's really hard to recruit and retain top talent.”
Jen would know—she’s the Managing Director of A.Team’s CxO Network and former CTO of AFWERX, the US Air Force Innovation Wing. And she has a message for corporate leaders: sticking to the old, inflexible way of working won’t work.
But to truly win the talent war—and attract top female talent that may not be interested in a traditional full-time role—you need to go beyond remote work.
Snow writes: “The winners of the next five years will be the companies that leverage not just hybrid or remote work options, but another key tool that’s just emerging: just-in-time talent.”
