CIOs Are Optimistic
 
Chief information officers are taking an optimistic view of the economy next year, with more expecting to add to their staffs in the first quarter of 2010, according to the first-quarter Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Index and Skills Report.
 
Seven percent of technology executives nationwide anticipate adding information technology staff in the first quarter of 2010 and 4 percent plan work force reductions. The net 3 percent increase is up three points from last quarter's forecast. Eighty-nine percent of CIOs plan to maintain current personnel levels.
 
Some of the greatest hiring activity is expected to occur in Midwest states like Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. This East North Central region, and South Atlantic states, will see notable hiring activity in the first quarter, according to the survey. Chief information officers in each region anticipate a net hiring increase of 8 percent, five points above the national average.
 
The IT Hiring Index and Skills Report is based on telephone interviews with more than 1,400 CIOs from companies across the United States with 100 or more employees. It was conducted by an independent research firm and developed by Robert Half Technology, a provider of IT professionals on a project and full-time basis.
