With the rapid growth of the data center industry, it is no secret that operators are struggling to recruit and retain sufficient qualified staff. A recent Uptime Institute survey found that over half of the respondents reported that they were either having difficulty finding candidates to fill open data center jobs or were having trouble retaining staff. Conversely, the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans says Veterans make up roughly 11% of adults experiencing homelessness.
With record-high demand for connectivity at the moment, keeping the complex digital infrastructure up and running is not easy. Expectedly, Salute Mission Critical, a global data center services company is seeing a surge in demand for data center specialists. Salute is a company with a humanitarian mission to focus on solving the chronic problem of unemployment many veterans face and now more than ever, the industry needs new talent.
For data center operators, this is an ongoing struggle, especially since many need already trained and certified candidates. Salute provides a win-win scenario for growth-oriented data center operators/providers and the industry as a whole.
“How Salute responds to every request or situation proves that their customer-centric view is ingrained at every level of the company and this differentiates them from many competitors. The quality of their services is a testament to the culture of a company based on values that we share.” – Randy Brouckman, CEO of EdgeConneX
