IT Staffing Is on the Rise for 2015

IT staffing prospects look encouraging for the year ahead, as more CIOs expect to expand their technology organization's headcount than reduce it, according to a recent survey from Robert Half Technology. The accompanying "Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Forecast and Local Trend Report" indicates that an overwhelming majority of CIOs express confidence in their company's growth prospects for next year, and a notable share expect increases in their 2015 IT budget. That said, these technology executives will continue to face immense challenges in recruiting for key tech positions. "The first half of 2015 will remain a highly competitive hiring market, as IT departments expand their teams to address the three drivers for tech employment: mobile, big data and security," says John Reed, senior executive director of Robert Half Technology. "Companies recruiting for workers in software development, security and networking may find it especially challenging to recruit skilled talent." More than 2,400 U.S. CIOs took part in the research.
