Identify IT skills gap and unlock solutions for your organization

A noticeable gap between IT job openings and trained professionals qualified to fill them has emerged over the past few years. The COVID-19 pandemic has only made it more difficult to close this IT skills gap as businesses around the world struggle to find talented technicians for mission-critical areas, like cybersecurity.

A 2020 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey revealed that around 35% of enterprises consider cybersecurity experts as their top hiring priority. Other high-demand technology skills include organizational change management (27%), enterprise architecture (23%), and technical architecture and advanced analytics (22%).  

As the IT skills gap widens and demand for skilled technical professionals increases, OnX Canada helps clients close the gap by supplying highly vetted, experienced, and certified IT specialists on a project basis or as an ongoing contract. OnX has a large team of available talent to help your digital transformation, whether it’s onsite or remotely. Not only do you get access to a team with ready-to-go advanced technical expertise, but we bring our proven management framework to every project to ensure maximum efficiency and value.
