Retaining and training human resources in technological areas is the biggest challenge in Angola

The president of Deloitte Angola said this Wednesday, in Luanda, that the retention and training of human resources in technological areas is the great challenge for Angolan organizations, given the increasingly powerful systems and processing capacity.


José Barata, who spoke to the press on the sidelines of the 14th edition of Deloitte's Tech Trends study, which indicates six technological trends – flexibility, trust in artificial intelligence, what is above the cloud, metaverse (immersive internet for companies), 'blockchain' (decentralized architecture) and 'mainframes' (how to modernize old systems in the face of technological evolution) – he said that the results of this study demonstrate "that man still continues to be the center of everything".

"It is noted that there is a shortage of trained, qualified human resources to be able to operate technologies, and attracting, training and retaining talent is today one of the main challenges in being able to have technology at the service of the business", said José Cheap.

"In Angola, it is something that occurs in all organizations. My colleague launched the challenge, that the first organization come and say that, in terms of human resources in the technology area, it is sufficiently attended to and that it has the necessary people and In fact, they all have this challenge", he highlighted.

According to José Barata, this lack of talent is global, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic, seeing very significant leaps in technology, which requires increasingly more trained and qualified people.

"Universities are not being able to respond to this demand, the demand arose more quickly than universities are able to respond", he stressed, reiterating that organizations must invest in human capital, their training and retention.

The shortage of human resources occurs in all sectors, highlighted José Barata, with greater emphasis on those that require more technology, such as financial services, banking, insurance and telecommunications.

In turn, Nuno Carvalho, partner at Deloitte, told Lusa that Angola can take greater advantage of the first technological trend, flexibility, which "clearly" can benefit the country's organizations, from the point of view of skills to better respond.

"In other words, Angola really has to invest from the point of view of human training, I think that organizations have to create their academies, taking into account the technological developments that we are witnessing", he stressed.

For Nuno Carvalho, Angolan organizations can take great advantage of the six technological trends, "but there must be an awareness that organizations have to make their investments to be able to guarantee the right skills to be able to respond to these challenges".

"I would say that, on a global scale, organizations today are feeling many limitations, because the concepts are new, the functionalities are new, the solutions are new, and there is no pace for people to learn what is being transmitted" , he noted.
