Chief information officers plan to add staff in the third quarter, but hiring levels will be down from the second quarter, according to a survey released today by Robert Half Technology, part of Robert Half International Inc.

In the survey of CIOs, 14% said they planned to add information technology staff in the third quarter and 4% planned reductions for a net hiring index of 10%. While hiring continues, that's lower than the net hiring index of 15% for the third quarter of 2007.

The CFO survey found that 6% planned to hire finance and accounting staff in the third quarter while 6% forecast cuts for a net hiring index of zero. That compares to a net hiring index of 3% for the third quarter of 2007.

The surveys questioned more than 1,400 CIOs and more than 1,400 CFOs.
