Information Technology Leaders Expect IT Hiring and Spending to Increase in 2012

TEKsystems News Release (04/24/12)

More than a third of information technology leaders anticipate increases in both permanent (40%) and temporary (37%) IT headcount in 2012, according to TEKsystems’ most recent quarterly IT Executive Outlook survey. Of those IT leaders expecting to increase permanent and temporary IT headcount, 15% intend to do so by more than 5%. Senior IT leaders like chief information officers and IT vice presidents are most optimistic about IT hiring in 2012 with 54% and 43% expecting increases in permanent and temporary IT headcount, respectively.

“With consumerization of IT, mobility, social media, big data, and security being at the top of most executives’ priority lists, organizations need to ensure their work force strategy is capable of supporting the current and future state of their business,” says TEKsystems director Rachel Russell. “Businesses are realizing their work force requirements will vary from initiative to initiative. By work force planning and effectively leveraging a contingent model, organizations can ramp up or down and efficiently get their IT initiatives done.”
