Introduction

If you saw the recent announcement about our invitation to participate in Nexus 2015, the nearshore industry conference offered by Nearshore Americas, you may wonder how the event turned out. At Nexus 2015, I connected with many interesting people and organizations to get a wide perspective on today’s nearshore industry. Participating in the Mexico Leadership Panel, facilitated by MexicoIT, gave me an opportunity to exchange experiences with other panel members and the audience. My takeaway: For North American companies, Mexico is the most rewarding nearshore outsourcing location. The IT industry and nearshoring advance positive social change, and I am delighted that Tiempo contributes to it.

Introduction

During the last seven years, I helped many different Tiempo Development clients make the move from outsourcing their software development to offshore providers to our nearshore model.

In building unique software, Tiempo talent management and professional development are paramount to our clients’ success

In talking with Tiempo Development employees and people who know how businesses work, we often hear that we provide far more training, mentoring, and career development than is common in our industry. Word-of-mouth and surveys tell us that our work environment is more collaborative and collegial, encourages more participation, and considers individual needs more than is customary in many businesses. A 2013 workplace satisfaction survey by SG Buzz, the online resource of Software Guru, the leading forum for Latin American software professionals, placed Tiempo Development in the ninth position in a round-up of the 20 best companies to work for—in a league with industry giants like Microsoft, Intel, Oracle, and HP.

Why should this matter to clients? Because our professional development and talent management translate directly into the quality of the unique, specialized software we build in our nearshore development, as well as the velocity of the process.
