Gilbert Galea Castille Coo Blockchain Business Breakfast

Castille COO Gilbert Galea participated at the Chiliz Blockchain Business Breakfast, discussing alternative models towards robust and scalable tech teams, going on to explain how organisations can continue maintaining their competitive edge in the market whilst effectively transforming their core.

Mr Galea presented some statistics displaying how software talent shortage is here to stay across tech stacks, and how high attrition rates of tech talent are being recognised across industries worldwide. Despite such concerns, however, efficient solutions can be identified if organisations are capable of rethinking their tech-based operations. By embracing ongoing and future working trends through the enabling of flexible working and the adoption of employee-driven strategies, companies can better tune into ways through which top talent can be attracted and retained. 


Speaking about how flexible working is helping companies remain competitive, Mr Galea explained how business leaders are pushing the regulation of flexible working for their employees, creating a flexible workplace policy amidst the significant rise of job-seekers opting for flex-working options should they be given the choice. Mr Galea went on to discuss how companies opening up to alternative, innovative software talent collaboration models can mitigate their skills gap within their core team by bringing in technical expertise through on-demand talent, allowing the company to better focus on their transformation initiatives.

Mr Galea also spoke about how innovative talent collaboration opportunities are present through remote software development teams. An important point mentioned is how outsourcing has evolved drastically over the last couple of decades, now becoming a catalyst to transform core business through specialist skills. This means that it is becoming increasingly important for companies to make sure their professional relationship caters for business continuity and talent scalability when partnering up for talent. As a result, companies should be open to innovative, collaborative talent delivery models, particularly new providing hybrid teams made up of on-shore and remote working teams within managed nearshore infrastructures.
