Tech Tuesday: Mind the Tech Gap

The UK is the largest digital economy as percentage of the GDP in the G20 major economies and is expected to grow by 15% in 2017, a hotbed of startups and a home for big tech businesses, talent and digital innovation.
It certainly hasn’t been easy to get here and nor will it be in the years to come. The UK’s phenomenal digital potential has to be matched with a solid talent pipeline in order to keep the country’s tech leadership position for the upcoming decades.
Firstly, Brexit has challenged talent supply in a time when Britain has been dependent on supplementing homegrown technical talent with high-skilled workers abroad. Secondly, the pipeline of homegrown talent is alarmingly weak as number of students graduating computer science has dropped considerably since 2002.
In AND Digital we have addressed the nationwide need and are working towards building a digital powerhouse to ensure businesses have the right skills available to thrive in their digital transformation. We’ve created a remarkable culture based on a model of lifelong learning. We’ve committed to challenging our employees and clients to learn new skills, or to update their current set, to ensure we remain ahead of the curve…AND to remain Digital.
