By Don Reisinger | Posted 05-16-2011
As the world slowly emerges from the Great Recession, some companies are starting to invest in IT hiring, according to a study from technology staffing and service company, TekSystems. The company's 2Q 2011 quarterly IT Executive Outlook survey, conducted in partnership with the Inavero Institute and released April 28, finds that 36% of IT leaders plan to add contingent IT headcount over the next three months, and 41% plan to add permanent IT headcount in the same period. Part-time hiring is the only area in which the vast majority of survey respondents (87%) expect no change in 3Q 2011 from the previous quarter. Nearly half of respondents (47 percent) also plan to increase spending on IT infrastructure services in 3Q 2011, while 42 percent plan to increase spending on IT applications services in the same period. The quarterly survey polled more than 1,000 IT decision makers in the U.S. and Canada in March 2011.
