In the past five years alone, 98% of data scientists have changed jobs at least once. This high turnover rate is compounded by a shortage of AI talent—if data scientists want to go elsewhere, they can leave their current roles safe in the knowledge that they’re in high demand.
We’re addressing these critical questions:
● What’s causing data scientists to resign all at once?
● What can execs do to better support their data science teams?
● How can data scientists improve their communication with leadership?
Let’s increase trust between executives & data scientists.
If you’re an enterprise leader, you might:
Not feel like it’s your job to understand the ins and outs of data science
Be too busy to dedicate time to communicating with your data scientists
Feel like you have financial priorities outside of data science or that you’ve already invested sufficiently
Be frustrated with the high turnover rate of data scientists at your organization
Not even realize there’s a major shortage of AI talent
If you’re a data scientist, you might:
Feel as if no one outside of your team understands the work you do
Be spending most (or all) of your time doing tedious data prep grunt work
Not be satisfied with your compensation and/or career path
Feel like you’re lacking the tools you need to be successful
Have experienced a job that didn’t live up to your expectations OR even quit
Does any of this sound like you?
If so, we’re here to help. Whether you’re a disgruntled data scientist thinking about quitting your job (or already have!) or an exasperated exec grappling with high turnover rates—there’s no denying that we’re in the midst of a data science talent crisis. We’ve created a library of resources to help you put a stop to it.
How to Get Your Data Scientists to Quit
Want to know what’s causing the mass turnover in data science? This blog, from our Founder and CTO’s perspective (who has quit his data science jobs in the past!), will walk you through it. We break down the top six reasons data scientists quit their jobs, including:
A lack of growth opportunities at their current organization
