is thrilled to partner with Powderkeg to help tech companies in Indianapolis
and the Midwest develop leaders who can effectively build trust and shared
purpose with their employees, investors and customers,” said ADVISA President
Heather Haas, “At ADVISA, we believe leaders are the window through which
employees see the organization. These leaders need proven tools and training to
hire top talent, design winning teams and inspire performance. Talent
optimization is too important to be left to chance.”

the right tech talent can be one of the biggest challenges to growing a tech
company between the coasts - and that's true in Indianapolis. Respondents in
the Indianapolis Tech Census, powered by Powderkeg, identified a “talent gap”
in the region, especially regarding talent development.

professionals. Fast-growing tech companies are emerging and offering great
jobs, but it’s still really hard for them to find and keep the right talent.
That limits their growth,” said Matt Hunckler, CEO of Powderkeg. “The U.S. Tech
Census showed us that the

one reason people join a tech company is the same reason people leave a tech
company, and that is because of the company’s culture. Our members need a
partner who’s a superhero at leadership development. ADVISA will help empower
their leaders to build magnetic company cultures, so they can hire and retain
the right talent.”

external environment undergo unprecedented change. According to Gallup, 43% of
the workforce reported working remotely in 2017, and 85% of Millennials said
they prefer to telecommute, which raises the bar for creating high engagement
work cultures. Technology is in a constant state of flux, demographics are
fundamentally shifting with 10,000 Boomers retiring every day, and talent pools
are shrinking. The partnership between ADVISA and Powderkeg is an opportunity
to help tech leaders look specifically at these challenges and build resilient
organizations with leaders who are prepared to lead effectively in the work
environment as changes become more complex.
