IT Workforce Optimistic About Future, Survey Finds


A new survey of IT professionals conducted by Modis, a leading provider of information technology staffing solutions, shows a large majority (89 percent) of IT professionals are happy at their current job and two-thirds (64 percent) intend to stay where they are presently employed.

This widespread career contentment may be the result of survey respondents feeling that the things they find most critical to their job satisfaction are being fulfilled, according to Modis. These factors include having a boss that does not micromanage (70 percent), having a good salary and benefits (62 percent) and having opportunities to receive training in new technical skills (61 percent).

“These results are consistent with what we are seeing and hearing on a day to day basis at Modis,” said Jack Cullen, president of Modis. “IT professionals are generally happy in their current roles and are cautiously optimistic about what 2012 may bring.”

Braun Research, Inc. conducted the telephone survey on behalf of Modis with 502 IT professionals.
