Staffing firms in South Florida say technology professionals are receiving multiple job offers in the current market and that programmers, security analysts, and administrators who maintain company databases are in high demand. A survey of more than 1,000 technology workers in the tri-county area by the Boca Raton-based staffing firm ProTech indicates that salary is the prime motivator, and flextime and telecommuting are the biggest perks. The survey shows that the average pay increase for technology professionals was 3.5% in 2011, compared with 2% in 2010. Gary Henning, Robert Half International’s Florida district president, says technology professionals want to be involved in “cutting edge” work, and if employers do not raise salaries, “people are going to entertain other offers.”
