Tomorrow’s Workforce Relies on GovCons Taking Proactive Role in Talent Management

Building the “Workforce of the Future 4.0” – Managed Services, Migration to Cloud, Geographic Rotation, Workforce Development

Digital TransformationIn recent years, government has developed a hunger for modernized technologies — cloud, artificial intelligence, IT as-a-service. But federal agencies and government contracting companies struggle to meet the staffing demands surrounding these upgraded offerings.

To discuss how to meet the emerging need, George Batsakis, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer at 1901 Group shares with Adam Stone the vision of Workforce of the Future 4.0. It rests on two basic ideas: Get outside the Beltway to find fresh talent, and cross-train people to work on a broad range of IT implementations.

Batsakis also shares his insight on how the managed service model is built to support government’s IT priorities with modernization, supported by a workforce.

“A platform that can deliver from one to many customers is more efficient for customers, and it’s also completely feasible with today’s technology. Agencies are supported by a workforce that can plug in and cross-fertilize across those functions and can grow as the platform grows. As we add more automation in the platform, we’re freeing up more labor to do more design and engineering work.”

“Having an academic institution, a university, is a good part of it. It’s also about having a community where they’re hungry for a good-quality economic boost in jobs. There are a lot of counties and towns out there that have a meaningful reason to want to participate and contribute to the re-skilling of their workforce, to drive better economic results in their area.”
