"Technical expertise alone is not enough in filling many product and IT positions, which increasingly must understand the key business drivers in their respective areas," said John Henning, Granite Solutions Groups director of business development. "Our clients find more need for roduct and IT contractors with deep business acumen and strong interpersonal skills.
"This profile tends to appear more with age - younger workers often need time to develop the business experience. Yet, even among more experienced workers in the current labor market, this profile is not readily available."
To better their chances of finding candidates and contractors who understand business, Henning suggests HR keeps current a deep candidate pool and also affiliates with trusted external recruiting resources.
Companies often don't know when staffing needs will reach a critical point where tensions can erupt. For example, Henning noted that one of its clients, a large national financial institution, completely reversed its position on hiring contractors within a three-week period in large part because of from line managers.

"Like most sectors in society, the bias is towards the young," says John Henning, Granite Solutions Groupe's Director of Business Development. "The idea of 1990s technical 'wiz kids'- energetic and driven - still dominates the cultural consciousness and perceptions. Stereotypes of the 'Older Worker' suggest less enthusiastic, less dynamic and innovative employees and this perception couldn't be further from the truth."
According to Henning, the profile of the technologist with business acumen and strong, measured interpersonal skills tends to appear more frequently with age, important for corporate development teams and managers, entrepreneurial companies and C-level positions. This baby boomer group, he noted, are statistically more educated, more networked and lead 'younger lives' than previous generations.
