Businesses that are reliant on IT need to pay special attention to their recruitment and retention strategies in 2018 as a recent survey suggests that a third (32%) of IT professionals hope to switch jobs within the next 12 months.
Given that just about every business is now reliant on IT for delivery of its core business offer - this probably means YOU.
The survey, carried out by Spiceworks, backs up what I'm hearing. IT professionals are happy with the industry and, generally, they are happy with their employer but they would be tempted by a better offer.
It's worth just pausing to digest that headline claim ... a third of IT professionals are planning to either begin looking for or switch to a new IT job in 2018. A third! Take a second to consider your amazing business plans for this year, reflect upon the role that IT will play in delivering those plans. Now, look around your IT office and imagine the impact of a third of your key IT talent handing in their notice.
So how do you attract and retain the best talent?
