Info-Tech Research Group, a research and advisory firm, has released its 2022 trends report on the IT talent market. This new research features insights and strategies on how organizations can incorporate new ways of working to build and keep the best team.

The pandemic forced the world to work differently for the past two years. Info-Tech’s research indicates that to compete, successful organizations will need to incorporate new ways of working. This is beyond simply having a remote work policy. The IT talent market will never be the same. Organizations must re-evaluate their employee experience from the bottom up to weather the shift to the new normal successfully.

The “IT Talent Trends 2022” report findings are based on insights from 245 IT professionals who participated in the survey. The survey data for the 2022 report is diverse, with representation from 12 countries and 18 industries. It focuses on manufacturing, government, financial, education, telecom and health care sectors.

What employees are looking for is changing. The biggest change from 2019, pre-pandemic, to today is the importance placed on culture, flexible work, and work-life balance. Organizations that fail to keep up with this shift in priorities will see the greatest difficulty in hiring and retaining staff. The five trends (see slideshow above) that Info-Tech’s research has revealed should be a top priority for IT leaders as they build and retain the best team.
