Eighty-nine percent of information technology professionals said they are happy in their current positions and 64 percent plan to stay with their current employer, according to a survey released today by Modis, an IT staffing division of Adecco Group North America.
In addition, 44 percent of all IT professionals expect a raise next year.
“These results are consistent with what we are seeing and hearing on a day-to-day basis at Modis,” said Modis President Jack Cullen. “IT professionals are generally happy in their current roles and are cautiously optimistic about what 2012 may bring.”
Meanwhile, 65 percent of IT professionals believe their IT team will stay the same size in 2012, while 28 percent expect their teams to increase headcount either marginally or significantly.
More than a third (35 percent) of IT professionals said that networking with other IT people is the most effective way to land an IT job. However, only 8 percent said that social media tools like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter are most effective for landing an IT job.
The survey included telephone interviews of 502 IT professionals from Oct. 7 to Oct. 14.
