SOUTHFIELD – One in 10 Detroit-area chief information officers surveyed plans to expand their IT teams in the second quarter of 2013, according to the Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Forecast and Local Trend Report.
That’s somewhat less optimistic about boosting IT staff than Robert Half’s national survey, in which 14 percent plans to add more staff to IT departments next quarter no matter what.
In addition, 63 percent of Detroit CIOs plan to hire, but only to fill open IT positions, compared to 61 percent of CIOs across the nation. Another 23 percent have put hiring plans on hold, compared to 22 percent in the national survey. And 1 percent expect to reduce their IT staff, compared to 2 percent in the national survey.
