39 States were at full employment before coronavirus

In January 2020 the US job market was hot.  The number of states at full employment moved upto 39 from 38 in the prior month. What will be interesting to see is what will happen to the unemployment rate due to lost jobs the later half of the first quarter and second quarter of 2020.  We bet that will not be a rosey picture.

Tenure of CIO

Tenure of CIOs is impacted by booming economy

Tenure of CIO is now 4 years and 6 months. 

CIO Tenure

The primary driver was that 19% of all CIOs had a tenure of 12 months or less. At the same time last year, the same 12 months or less group was 15%. In addition, 28% of all CIOs have held their positions for 24 months or less versus 40% in January 2019.

We have found that between the 24 months and 36 month tenure period a number of CIO leave because the opportunity they were looking for was not there. Also, a number of the CIOs did not meet the expectations of the C-Level management team.
