People management has always posed challenges for businesses and their HR leaders. Leaders have to address skills shortages, develop strategies to attract and retain talent, and promote inclusiveness in their policies. Today’s digital landscape – where there is a scarcity of digital skills across industries – makes it even harder. Leaders are now paying close attention to employee experience and retention, and topics such as digital workplace, hybrid work, flexibility, and wellness have made it to management discussions.

Organisations have relied heavily on technology to survive and succeed over the last 2 years.
Many tech providers have led the way – showing by example how strategies and technologies have to be shaped. They have also worked at improving their product and services offerings, introduced newer features and acquired companies to support market needs and grow their market share.
What should they do differently in 2022 to continue to succeed?
Ecosystm analysts think that a mere focus on products and features will not help. This is the time to focus on softer aspects such as skills, alignment with customer priorities, and an overhaul of channel programs.
Here is what Tech Providers should focus on in 2022 for continued success:
- Build relationships with Business
- Increase Automation to curb the effects of the Great Resignation
- Syndicate Skills; not just Software
- Focus on Channel Partners – and Pricing
- Be Local and Industry-Specific
