Here are six soft skills that will help drive your business success. Look for them when you’re hiring tech candidates. 1. Collaboration When searching for capable enterprise technology professionals, collaboration is key. Effective communication and teamwork are key for success in cross-functional teams. Hiring individuals with strong collaboration skills ensures that your team is able to work harmoniously, fostering an environment where ideas flow freely and problem-solving becomes a collective effort.2.

Crushing the most critical challenges in Salesforce hiring
As the adoption of Salesforce continues to surge across various industries, the demand for skilled Salesforce professionals has reached unprecedented heights. However, this growing demand comes with its own set of challenges for companies seeking to hire these experts.Hiring Salesforce professionals is a nuanced process that requires careful navigation of a highly competitive and dynamic job market. It’s vital that organizations understand these challenges and implement the recommended approaches. They will then position themselves to attract, retain and harness the skills of Salesforce professionals.So what are the biggest challenges businesses are facing today when hiring top Salesforce professionals, and how can they be overcome?Not understanding your real Salesforce hiring needs“When you’re searching for experts, make sure you clearly define what kind of Salesforce assistance your business needs. You’ll then understand who is a good fit for your company, and who isn't. If you aren't sure, talk to a partner like K2 to help you pinpoint the right talent for your unique needs,” says Drew Montano, Recruitment Team Lead for Salesforce at K2 in North America. “A lot of companies are looking for “one person to do it all” when it comes to Salesforce, says Drew. “Sometimes that’s not a realistic expectation and will set both your business and your resource up for failure,” he adds. “You get what you pay for at the moment. In the current market, it makes sense to invest in higher quality talent. It will benefit your business in the long term in comparison to cost effective options that may ultimately create more challenges.”High demand for talentSalesforce professionals are in high demand, meaning they may have multiple job offers from the very best businesses. Competition is fierce, so companies must demonstrate why these experts should choose them as their employer. Top talent is attracted by competitive salaries, flexible work arrangements and promising career progression.By clearly communicating your range of company benefits and building a strong employer brand, you will demonstrate that your business gives professionals a rewarding and fast-paced career. By maintaining and developing your career advancement opportunities, you’ll keep employees engaged and satisfied. The result will be higher retention levels for your business.Shortages of Salesforce skillsFinding professionals with current Salesforce certifications can be challenging. The ecosystem is constantly evolving with new features and updates. In addition to technical skills, Salesforce professionals need strong soft skills like communication and problem-solving. Companies must support ongoing learning and invest in training to ensure their teams stay up-to-date with the latest Salesforce developments. K2 University, as an official Salesforce Training Provider, is a market leader in helping business teams obtain crucial Salesforce certifications, as well as valuable practical and soft skills. By the end of their training, professionals have all the knowledge they need to boost their employer’s productivity and ROI. Lack of recruitment resources “It's difficult to screen and source quality talent within the Salesforce ecosystem. If you don't work with a partner like K2 Talent Solutions, with extensive experience and quality resources, you'll end up spending more in the long run,” says Caitlin Gentry, K2’s Vice President of Delivery in North America.By taking all of these points into consideration and taking action, you will build a strong talent pipeline and foster key relationships within the Salesforce community. Getting support from a hiring partner with extensive expertise can help you achieve your Salesforce hiring goals faster and more effectively.

Usman Ahmad – Consultant of the Month
Our global network of consultants is key to the success Each month, we recognize a K2 consultant whose outstanding performance, expertise, and unwavering commitment have led to outstanding client feedback on their recent project. This month the K2 Consultant of the Month is Usman Ahmad, an Ariba Consultant. His innovative solutions led to the successful implementation of Ariba Buying and Invoicing and Ariba SLP for a leading organization. Find out more by reading his interview below: 1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. I started off working in the SAP MM space but pivoted towards SAP Ariba after a few years. I’ve been mostly working with cloud applications, such Ariba and Concur, for the last few years. I now have about 11 years of experience in working with SAP products. 2. Tell us more about your most recent K2 project. My most recent project involved a client who was implementing Ariba Buying and Invoicing and Ariba SLP. I was responsible for writing all the test scripts for UAT and leading the testing in general. My other responsibility was writing the configuration document. I had to catch up quickly on everything that was done and provided the client with a 118 page document for their reference. 3. What do you enjoy most about your job? Working from home is a great perk and allows me to spend more time with my two kids. I also like solving real-world problems and learning things along the way. The more experience you gain the more valuable you become. 4. Which technical development do you think will have the biggest impact on your field or the wider world of IT over the next couple of years? I think the most obvious answer is AI. Especially if you work in the IT development world that deals with coding. I can envision AI taking over some of the work leading to a decrease in employment. I think my particular niche is safe for now. 5. What advice would you give to someone who is starting out as a freelance IT consultant? They should take a training course or gain experience in their particular niche. Strive to do their best and most importantly be sociable and confident. The client wants to feel they are in good competent hands. The last piece of advice would be to create a S-Corp and go the C2C route to save some money on taxes.

Dreamforce Digest, day 3: Salesforce plays safety card to tackle AI trust challenges
You can trust Salesforce to deliver safe and secure AI opportunities – that was the main message from the final day of Dreamforce 2023.Thursday lacked the landmark product launches of day one, or the celebrity razzmatazz of day two. But it drove home the conference’s big themes, and gave the 40,000-plus attendees a taste of Salesforce’s AI-powered future.The K2 team has been on the ground at Dreamforce. Here are some highlights of the day-three action, both on and off the main stage:Remember: it’s no-code and low-code!Day-by-day, speech by speech, Salesforce’s leaders have fed attendees consistent messages. Case in point: frequent references to Einstein’s no-code and low-code capabilities. These have the potential to “democratize” the development of AI, said Clara Shih, CEO of Salesforce AI, whose session opened up day three of Dreamforce. Shih gave another demo of Einstein Prompt Builder, following Wednesday’s marketing keynote, which also talked about the impact and usability of the tool. Later that morning, Muralidhar Krishnaprasad, EVP of software engineering, explained how the Prompt Builder can easily create more personalized customer outreach emails.Why the “era of AI” is surprisingly like the 1990sSalesforce leaders have been keen to stress that AI is still in its infancy, despite progress over the past year. Shih said the “era of AI” is opening up opportunities for businesses, but she also spoke of new ethics and trust challenges similar to those faced in the early days of the internet. “We are with AI where we were in 1999 with the cloud,” Shih added later in the morning session. “This is an exciting, inspiring time.”Salesforce presents itself as a safe option amid AI trust concernsLater in the Dreamforce morning, Claire Cheng, senior director for engineering at Salesforce, talked further about trust in AI. It’s been a running theme throughout each day of Dreamforce 2023: speakers highlight emerging problems with trust and then present Salesforce as a safe, trustworthy solution for businesses. Cheng said it’s important to build a trust-based foundation in AI innovation that protects customer data and uses it responsibly. For now, Salesforce is bigging up the capabilities of the Einstein Trust Layer, secure AI architecture that allows teams to use generative AI without compromising customer data.Dreamforce delegates get glimpse into Salesforce’s AI futureThe landmark launches of Einstein 1 and Einstein Copilot dominated day one of Dreamforce. On day three, we got a brief glimpse into the general future direction of Salesforce products. “We’re going to deliver capabilities like summarization, and have deeper, more contextual conversations with your customers,” Alexa Vignone, EVP for sales, told the conference. Salesforce will focus on making things easier for customers by using the capabilities of Copilot, its generative AI assistant. “It’s not just about the products and services we’re building. It’s about how we’re using our ecosystem to build on these,” added Vignone.Google and Salesforce share a focus on “trust”Salesforce’s future will also include closer integration between its services and Google Workspace. On Tuesday, Salesforce announced an expansion of its strategic partnership with Google. On Thursday, Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian joined Shih on the stage to tell us more. While some may see the two firms as competitors, Kurian said Google Cloud has similar values to Salesforce when it comes to AI development, particularly a shared focus on trust. In fact, trust is fundamental to the Workspace integration.From Gucci to Lamborghini: Italian glamour on show at DreamforceIt didn’t quite match Wednesday’s Foo Fighters gig or Matthew McConaughey’s fireside chat, but Salesforce chose to put two of its more glamourous clients under the spotlight on day three. Gilberto Tosca, chief technology and information officer at Gucci, was on the main stage to discuss the Italian fashion house’s early adoption of AI tools, which are helping “Guccify” its customer messaging. Off stage, Salesforce was promoting how it’s helped another Italian luxury brand, sports car maker Lamborghini, streamline its apps and data.Weary Dreamforce delegates chill out over breakfastAs Dreamforce wound down on Thursday and attendees started tiring of all things AI, the social side of the conference got more chilled. Breakfasts replaced rock concerts and after-parties. If you just fancied food and networking, you could go for the Conga x Accenture Breakfast, the 10th Anniversary Amplify @DF23 Breakfast, or the BreakfastWithYottaa & ESW. If you wanted a more specific career focus, you could choose from Coffee & Career Advice for Future Revenue Leaders, or the Diving into Data Breakfast.We hope you enjoyed K2’s daily coverage of Dreamforce 2023.
