Quality of IT Personnel Most Important to Staffing Buyers, Survey Finds

TEKsystems, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, talent management expertise and services,  announced findings from two recent studies of more than 1,800 buyers of IT staffing services and 6,100 IT staffing consultants. The surveys focused on understanding what is most important when selecting an IT staffing firm.

Buyers of IT staffing services say the quality of the IT personnel provided is a top value driver. In allocating 100 points across attributes buyers consider when selecting an IT staffing firm, the ability of the firm to provide quality IT personnel received 46 points in 2012 – compared to 44 points and 45 points in 2011 and 2010, respectively. Buyers give the next most important attribute, pricing/rates, 18 points – this number hasn’t changed since 2010. Other key attributes include the account manager’s service (14 points) and timeliness/speed of filling requirements (14 points).
