Engineering workforce: Intuit to open two talent hubs

The plan of hiring new tech talent for the engineering workforce is a part of the firm’s post-pandemic work strategy

To add more diversity to the company’s engineering workforce, Intuit on Tuesday said it plans to open two new “talent hubs”, one in New York City and one in Los Angeles. The plan of hiring new tech talent for the engineering workforce is a part of the firm’s post-pandemic work strategy.

The financial software company, which makes TurboTax, QuickBooks, Credit Karma and Mint, already, has 10 offices in the US, including two in Southern California. To add new talent in its engineering workforce, the firm plans to recruit in new “talent hotspots” where there are “concentrated pools of existing and emerging diverse technical talent, including women and underrepresented minority engineers,” the company said in a blog post.

New York and Los Angeles collectively open access to 27 per cent of the underrepresented minority engineering talent in North America, Intuit said.

In the post-pandemic world, Intuit is currently evaluating how to organize its engineering workforce. 88 per cent of its employees worked on site full time or most of the time prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Intuit, beginning in May, plans a “soft open” of its sites. With employees returning on a voluntary basis, offices will open at restricted capacity (40 per cent or less). After that, Intuit plans to progress to a “partial open” with sites at greater than 40 per cent capacity. Eventually, with employees coming in two to three days a week, it plans to open sites back at full capacity. Employees won’t be required to return to the workplace before August.

Intuit plans to implement a “hybrid” model, beginning in August, where employees have to come in for “high-impact” in-person days or events.

After surveying 9,800 of its global employees, Intuit learned that only 6 per cent wanted to go back to working full-time on site.
