Is AI your next secret weapon for productivity?

As AI/LLM-based tools like ChatGPT and Co-pilot rapidly improve, so does their potential to boost your dev team’s efficiency and speed. However, South African companies are slow to adopt these tools (though their use is increasing). 

In a time of doing more with less resources, AI tools offers an obvious solution to ramp up software developers’ productivity and add massive business value. The time is now to get ahead of your competitors. But using AI in production comes with its own set of challenges to overcome.

What you'll learn:

  • How the latest developments in AI tooling can boost your dev team’s productivity, with practical use cases to illustrate

  • The risks that come with using AI tools in a business, and potential ways to resolve them

  • How to make the adoption of AI a priority in your company culture

About the event

📅  29 February
⏰  18.00 - 19.00 SAST
📍 Online Webinar

Salary discussions are some of the most critical discussions to happen between managers and employees – but often the constraints are already set in company wide budget meetings.   

Managers who know how to advocate for their team members are better set up to navigate these budget conversations. A solid budget can make or break how satisfied your new hires and existing team members are with their compensation. To make matters even more complicated, salary is an individual experience that should be tackled on a case-by-case basis. 

Should you match a counter offer? Should team members with similar roles earn the same? Making mistakes when it comes to salary can be really painful and can cost you high performing team members in the long run.

In this event, we’ll deep dive into these challenges to set you up to win in salary conversations with your tech team.

Join the conversation with fellow tech leaders to delve into:

🚀 How to manage your salary budget and its impact on your team.
🚀 How to advocate for raises for your current team members.
🚀 How to benchmark salary according to the market with the latest insights from OfferZen’s State of the Developer Nation reports.
