Cybera has announced that it has been named to the Nashville Business Journal’s “Largest Technology Services Firms in Nashville,” coming in at #6. The annual list ranks the top 25 Nashville-area technology services firms by number of local area tech employees.
In a recent interview with the Nashville Business Journal, Cliff Duffey, Cybera President and Founder, addressed the question: What is the #1 key to bridging the talent gap in Nashville? Duffey stated, “From our view, there is not necessarily a ‘talent gap’ in Nashville, but the supply of tech talent is tight. Since our primary business is providing network and information security services, we need skills that are in very high demand. Fortunately, we have been able to find the talent we need for most roles, but have to be more aggressive while recruiting than we might experience in other markets with a richer supply of experienced technology talent.”
In addition to the highly competitive salaries and benefits it offers, a critical aspect of Cybera’s ability to attract and retain top talent across various disciplines is its focus on company culture, starting with a long-standing dedication to diversity hiring. Cybera’s Human Resources (HR) leadership team has created a supportive and compassionate work environment, with open lines of communication and built-in flexibility to respond to evolving employee needs.
Community building is also a key aspect of the Cybera culture. There have been many challenges to sustaining a strong employee community in 2020, with the COVID-19 pandemic. The Cybera leadership team took an early, proactive approach in transitioning all “non-essential” staff to work from home (WFH) environments. In turn, HR leaders have created ways for employees near and far to stay connected with events such as the weekly “Good Morning, Cybera” virtual staff chat.
Each chat is preceded by a question, challenge, or contest to spark interest and participation. Prizes are often awarded for participation, such as a “Be A Hero, Support A Hero” t-shirt. With every t-shirt the company purchases, five face masks are donated to healthcare and other essential workers. This serves to advance another Cybera goal: Supporting and giving back to both the local and global community.
