As recruiting and retaining talent is more challenging today than ever before, traditional Executive and Professional Search models are struggling to align with this rapidly evolving talent landscape. While managers play key roles in a classic organization, digital transformations require employees with special skills and competencies, including data scientists, engineers and database administrators. Understanding technology and how it can help to bridge this knowledge-gap to meet our Clients and Candidates larger objectives is the billion-dollar question we at Momenta are racing to solve.
