2023 Talent Trends: Technology

April 4, 2023

Each year, Business Talent Group releases the High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy top independent talent to fill critical skill, expertise, and leadership gaps. Here are the key technology trends for 2023.

In 2023, the tech industry is experiencing the rapid development and adoption of game-changing technologies—from AI to 5G to cloud solutions—all against the backdrop of an uncertain and unfavorable market. As companies respond with necessary cost reductions, on-demand talent can help leaders do more with less by providing critical support on projects in marketing and sales, business processes, and IT and tech transformations.
