Talent heat map

Abodoo conducted research on behalf of Wexford County Council to capture the skill set of tech professionals who are located within one hour's drive from Gorey, Co. Wexford. The aim of the project was to attract inward investment to the area from businesses looking to set up outside of Dublin in The Hatch Lab, which is a co-working space in Gorey.

Close to 1000 people registered with Abodoo between 22 December 2017 and 31 January 2018 so that they could get data of the skill set of those within the Gorey area.

The below talent heat map details some interesting data in relation to the specific IT skill sets, salary expectations and willingness to relocate if they could secure employment within the town. It also demonstrates that regional regeneration can work when the combination of connectivity, co-working spaces and people with key skills can be brought together to enable businesses to set up outside of Ireland's major cities.
