Home to giants like Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, and thousands of other world-class employers of technology talent, the beautiful Seattle metropolitan area is the fastest growing tech hub in the United States, and the second-ranked market for tech talent overall. The “Emerald City” region is a critical center of innovation helping to transform our world and society.
Seattle’s tech labor pool grew by 20% between 2012 and 2017 and shows no signs of slowing down. Indeed, companies continue to relocate to the Seattle area to take advantage of the area’s rich mine of talent. This increase in demand creates at least two significant challenges for employers: the need for a larger, more sustainable supply of talent, and the ability to retain that talent.
Apprenti began in Seattle and helps companies meet the rapidly growing demand for talented, capable, and diverse tech talent for hard-to-fill roles like Software Developers, IT Business Analysts, Cybersecurity Analysts, and more! And with retention rates in the mid-80% range, the Apprenti Program helps employers to stay off the poaching carousel.
