SALT LAKE CITY -- A growing number of Utah employers are expecting to add to their IT staffs and budgets. That's according to a new survey from ConsultNet.
As far as the recession goes, ConsultNet President Spencer Shaffer says, "We're hearing that things may be starting to flatten out, and I think it gives companies some hope."
Six months ago, many of the same employers were not so optimistic about the near future. Shaffer says the future looks much better for IT and engineering professionals in Utah.
According to the survey:
- 30 percent of Utah companies expect an increased IT budget in the next six months. Only 10 percent expect a decrease.
- 34 percent of Utah companies expect their IT and engineering headcount to increase in the next six months.
- 44 percent of hiring managers decreased headcount during the past six months. Only 10 percent are expecting a decrease in the next 6 months. E-mail: email@example.com
