Hiring Diverse Engineers
Jean Su, Vice President of Engineering, Innovation Labs at Istuary Innovation Group, states “Diversity in the workforce is fundamental to driving fast-paced growth in tech sectors such as storage solutions, IoT security and Big Data. In order to be cutting edge, we need talented engineers who already view the world differently by being bold and already aware of global opportunities. A major piece of advice I can give to a young engineer is not to focus on just the trends but build fundamental, logical thinking. It’s not just having the skills to do the job. It’s how you think.”
Pay Well and Build Trust

Mr. Guay’s comments and opinions are marvelous. The article’s headline nets out, in a few words, the most winning strategy for attracting and hiring diverse engineers. Wait for it! Mr. Quay recommends “Want to attract and keep top talent? Pay well and build trust“ He goes on to state,” If you pay to market or above, what’s the real problem then? Trust. Trust is why people join a company in the first place. They believe your pitch, their friends, your recruiters, employees, and leaders. They know your brand, market competitiveness and products or services.
