IT Pro Hiring TrendThe CEO of Janco Associates, Inc., Mr. M. Victor Janulaitis said, “An average of 13,000 IT jobs have been added to the IT job market each month of 2021. This number could be greater, but CIOs are having difficulty finding enough candidates who are qualified for positions that they need to fill. Much of the recruiting emphasis is on developers with experience in security/compliance and outward facing Internet based applications. That added to the issue of staff retention is making HR a top priority for CIOs.”

TThe CEO added, “Complications added due to Delta variant delayed move back to the office is having a significant impact on the loss of organizational cohesion. Development and support activities require a high degree of teamwork.  WFH has had an adverse impact on many organizations which is driving many of the stay-at-home workers to look for other opportunities.” He also said, “We are starting to see salaries move up as organizations are trying to proactively reduce the attrition rates. Many are addressing the ability to let individuals have the option for WFH as a standard fringe benefit.”
