Tampa Bay tech community pulls together to help displaced CareSync workers


    The tech community is coming together to make sure nearly 300 people who lost their jobs last week are able to find new positions. Several companies are offering positions to workers laid off when CareSync abruptly closed its doors.

    The outpouring of support from the tech community highlights a problem plaguing the area — a shortage of qualified workers. The Tampa Bay Partnership is currently developing a strategy to bridge the skills gap after a report last year found the region’s talent pipeline lacking.
