Re-Thinking HR: What Every CIO Needs to Know About Tomorrow's Workforce

IT executives cashed in higher bonuses than their subordinates at the end of 2007.

If you are an IT executive, chances are you received a bigger raise than your staff at the end of 2007. IT executives received an average raise of 4.7% this year, while IT managers and professionals received 4 percent raises - a few tenths of a percent below the rate of inflation. (The consumer price index rose 4.3% in November 2007 from the previous year.) The gap is smallest at companies below $100 million.
