Central Indiana Tech Workforce Study April 2015 Funders 2 Central Indiana Tech Workforce Study Table of Contents Overview and Purpose Structure and Growth of Tech Sector Demand for Computer and IT Talent Quantity and Quality of Computer and IT Talent Key Findings Appendix 3 Overview and Purpose 4 Overview and Purpose Hire Up in partnership with TechPoint reviewed real-time employment data and completed surveys with 71 Central Indiana companies to understand the talent demands of the regions tech sector and determine how well computer and IT talent is prepared to succeed. The study builds upon previous studies by EmployIndy and TechPoint to provide a deeper look at the demand for and supply of talent in Central Indianas tech sector and provide a foundation of data and analysis of key talent needs to help grow the tech sector. The study outlines good news challenges and opportunities to develop more technical talent for one of the fastest evolving industries in the nation and Central Indiana. 5 The Good News and Challenges Good News Central Indianas tech sector spans the economy is growing and pays significantly higher than most other industry sectors. Local educational institutions have ramped up programs and production of graduates with associate bachelors and masters degrees and students are graduating with fundamentals and basic skills needed for employment. Challenges Employers recognize a skills gap which is a unique challenge in an industry sector such as tech that changes rapidly. Employers need talented people who hold the right skill-sets in specific technologies. 6 The Opportunities New enhanced and multiple educational pathways are needed to bridge the information divide between the tech sectors demand for talent and graduates produced by our education system. The region needs to predict industry needs and respond to the many different skill-sets that are needed. With that information the region can better align education with those specific industry needs. Student learning opportunities need to include exposure to and experiences with real-world technology application e.g. internships. 7 Key Building Blocks The research for this study uses a computer and IT occupational description of the tech sector from the Occupational Information Network ONET. Employment data describing the tech sector and its structure are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the Indianapolis-Carmel Metropolitan Statistical Area using the EMSI database. Data describing the demand for computer an IT talent and the type of skills required are from Burning Glass Labor Insight real-time job postings. Burning Glass gathers millions of job openings daily and then mines the text of each one to aggregate employer demand for positions skills and qualifications. The job postings for this study are for the Indianapolis-Carmel Metropolitan Statistical Area. A Tech Workforce Business Survey was sent to 200 companies in March 2015 of which 71 completed the survey for 36 response rate. The questions in the survey focused on skills in demand hiring opportunities and challenges and university preparation of computer-related talent. Data describing the supply of degree credentials produced by colleges and universities serving the regional labor market are from the National Center for Education Statistics and the IPEDS database. Qualitative data were gathered from a series of interviews with computer-related businesses training providers and colleges and universities. 8 Structure and Growth of Tech Sector 9 Structure and Growth of Tech Sector The Good News Tech is pervasive across the Central Indiana economy. Tech is a key contributor to Central Indianas growth and well-being. Computer and IT positions are a strong component of both tech-product and tech- services companies as well as tech-enabled companies. Over the last five years the regional growth in computer and IT positions increased at a much faster rate than all other occupations. The annual average salary for regional computer and IT jobs is almost double the pay of all other jobs. 10 Structure and Growth of Tech Sector The Challenge The tech sector is becoming a larger share of the economy. It has just about caught up to the nation as a whole but still lags the top 25 metro areas. Sector growth will naturally lead to a higher demand for technically skilled workers. While increasing our production of those workers still isnt high enough to meet projected demand. 11 There are more computer-related jobs in Central Indiana than there are total jobs in the Life Sciences industry sector and nearly as many as the Advanced Manufacturing industry sector.

Computer and IT workers are critical components of tech companies in software and IT services as well as tech-enabled companies in healthcare manufacturing and financial services. The technologieslike software languages and applications are diverse and constantly evolving and improving to better meet consumers needs. If current rates of growth in Central Indianas tech sector continue as expected Central Indiana could soon surpass the rest of the nations concentration of tech employment. An increase in tech employment means an increase in individuals earning salaries significantly higher than those in most other sectors of our regional economy. 54 Key Findings The Good News As the demand for computer and IT talent has grown in Central Indiana local educational institutions offering associate bachelors and masters degree programs have ramped up the production of graduates with degrees in tech fields in an effort to meet demand. Employers applaud this increase and generally agree colleges are providing students the fundamentals and basic skills needed for employment within the sector. Employers are aware of a skills gap and increasing demand for the right talent and want to engage with educational institutions and training providers to further cultivate a technically skilled workforce. Internship opportunities for students and upskilling options for the incumbent workforce are helping to address the experience gap. 55 Key Findings The Challenge The tech sector holds unique challenges in talent development due to the wide range of skills employees must possess and because the sector itself is highly diverse. Employers note the difficulty associated with keeping up with rapidly changing technologies and sector needs. Changes in technology and tools to produce new products and services sweep through the sector at roughly the same rate as new products and services appear. The labor market data and Tech Workforce Business Survey respondents illustrate the recognition of a gap in both skills and experience versus that which job applicants and current employees possess. Employers need more talented people to join the tech workforce and in particular they want more people who hold the right skill-sets in specific technologies. 56 Key Findings Strategies Respond to diversity of demand from companies predict industry needs and equip talent with the skills to adjust to real-time technology advancements. Develop new and enhance existing pathways to bridge the information divide between the tech sectors demand for talent and graduates. Develop talent that includes the fundamental learning central to degree-based programs exposure to and experiences with real-world technology application and more rapid acquisition of skills in specific technologies for quickly changing application. Identify means to support multiple and targeted ways students employees and companies can access the right kind of skill development. 57 Key Findings The Opportunity Smart Choices Hire Up will identify ways to influence more students to enter and complete pathways that prepare them for careers in the tech sector. Skills that Matter Hire Up will elevate data analysis to highlight tech workforce needs and opportunities. Hire Up and TechPoint will initiate skills mapping for the tech industry to better align the curriculum and educational content with skills and knowledge required by Central Indianas tech employers. Talent Highways Hire Up and TechPoint will work together lead an effort to expand work-based learning opportunities and internships in the region. Hire Up will help grow or replicate innovative learning models like coding academies and online degree programs to upskill the current workforce to respond to rapid technological advances in this ever-evolving sector and to ensure adults and students can accelerate degree and credential completion.58 Appendix 59 Sources and Methods Definitions The research for this study uses a computer and IT occupational description of the tech sector from the Occupational Information Network ONET which is developed under the sponsorship of the US Department of LaborEmployment and Training Administration USDOLETA. Defining employment on the occupational level rather than the industry level allows us to take a comprehensive look at the supply and demand for technically skilled talent. The description of the wealth driving sectors identified in this study life sciences advanced manufacturing alternative energy and logistics use an industry classification of these sectors from the North American Industry Classification System NAICS. NAICS was developed under the auspices of the United States Office of Management and Budget OMB. An industry description is the most common way to describe and identify these sectors. The study further defines the tech sector into three segments Tech-product is the portion of the sector that consists of companies which createsell a computer hardware andor software-based product Tech-service consists of those companies which provide outsourced technology services and Tech-enabled consists of those companies where computertechnology is a critical component of their business and thus requires computer-related employees. 60 Sources and Methods Data Sources Employment data are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census Employment and Wages using the EMSI database.
