Randstad Technologies News Release (05/08/12)
A study by Randstad Technologies and Technisource, a Randstad company, shows information technology employees tend to be engaged at work and loyal to their organizations, yet over half (53%) plan to explore other employment options when the job market improves. Findings from the latest Randstad Engagement Index show that IT workers display more volatility than other employees when it comes to their intentions to leave their current jobs.
“With engagement remaining steady and strong for IT workers, employers need to be sure they do not take their employees for granted. Companies should be aware of potential turnover even among their most engaged and top performing employees, especially as more jobs in the industry continue to open up and the market becomes increasingly competitive,” said Bob Dickey, executive vice president of technologies at Randstad U.S., Professionals.
