With the economy starting to rebound, competition for talent could heat up. Your company’s IT department could feel the biggest impact.
Nearly one-third (32%) of IT employers plan to increase hiring this year, according to a recent CareerBuilder survey. That could cause retention difficulties as IT staffers weigh offers from other companies.
The best way to avoid a mad rush for the door? For employers that can’t afford to increase pay, the answer may lie in increasing no-cost benefits. Of the businesses surveyed by CareerBuilder, many plan to increase benefits such as:
- flexible scheduling (73%)
- telecommuting options (67%), and
- compressed work weeks (36%).
