Employment and compensation picture for IT Professionals is not improving

A net gain of only 3,400 jobs in June - versus the 6,600 jobs added in April and 200 in May - Salaries are up less than 1%

Janco has found that market for IT Professionals continues to struggle.  IT reflects the malaise of the US economy and added only 3,400 IT jobs in June while the total job market increased by 80,000 in June versus 69,000 in May and  115,000 added in April. At the same, the number of individuals still looking for jobs is at record low levels at a participation rate of 63.8% -- the lowest it has been since 1980.  In California the overall unemployment rate is 10.8% and Nevada tops that with an unemployment rate of 11.6%.  The CEO of Janco Associates, Inc., Victor Janulaitis said, “With low hiring demand and low participation rate the picture is not pretty for recent IT graduates and other IT professionals looking for new jobs. With that in mind employers are under little pressure to increase compensation.”

Making Life Easier for Mobile Workers - Mobility Policy Bundle Released

Polices and procedures on how to deal with increasing mobility are the nemesis of CIOs around the world

Mobility Policy BundleOver 30% of all mobile workers use mobile devices for applications other than e-mail according to data recently collected by Janco. The number of mobile devices supporting both private and public sector employees is expected to exceed 100 million by 2014. This includes only devices that support real time distributed transaction processing applications. It does not including mobile devices only used for Personal Information Management (PIM) and email applications.

The increasing use and dependency on IT is drastically changing the way companies improve employee productivity and keep in close contact with their customers.  At the same time employees who are accustomed to using these tools in their personal life are requesting (or demanding) to use the same tools at the workplace.

Companies are dealing with increasing numbers of employees who are working from non-traditional office locations. Whether employees are traveling, working from customer sites, or working from home, there is a growing need to access corporate data while outside the walls of an office and the fire walls of an IT department.

  • BYOD Policy
