News: Transatlantic battle over skilled staff continues.
London is gaining on San Francisco as a destination for skilled technology staff as the sector continues to grow.
33 percent of London’s technology community believe it is easier to recruit staff there than to the Bay Area, according to research by Tech London Advocates.
In addition, 48 percent though the city’s technology community was more diverse than San Francisco’s.
However, 42 percent still believe that San Francisco will remain the dominant location for digital workers.
Russ Shaw, founder of Tech London Advocates, said: "The Bay Area will always remain the global home of technology, but it is impossible to ignore the recent success of London’s tech hub. The creativity and diversity of London’s workforce is driving innovation and attracting talent, which may surprise many in Silicon Valley."
The findings are based on a survey of 150 Tech London Advocates conducted in November 2015.
