IT Worker Confidence Remains Strong

IT employees are decidedly optimistic about their careers—as well as the future of their organizations, according to a new survey from Randstad Technologies. Their overall confidence is high, and they're more self-assured when it comes to finding a new job should they explore the open market. Fortunately for CIOs, however, most of them are planning to stay with their current employers. It would be inadvisable to get complacent, however, because their loyalties could shift as demand for IT skills grows. "Technology professionals have one of the highest levels of confidence among other industries surveyed, and rightfully so," says Bob Dickey, group president over technology and engineering at Randstad. "With the increase in emerging technologies such as Web and mobile application development, big data and SaaS, the job market for IT professionals who specialize in such areas remains very bright. The competition for highly skilled workers is also increasing the need for employers to stay competitive when it comes to compensation." More than 165 IT workers participated in the research.
