Survey Reveals Major Disconnect For IT Workers

By ATR International |   Wed, Jun 11, 2014 @ 08:22 AM

InformationWeek’s Annual Salary Survey is out and as always provides an interesting look at IT salaries and great insight into what IT workers are thinking about.  One thing that caught my attention as I reviewed the details were the results around training and education, which shows a bit of a disconnection between what IT workers are thinking and doing.

How To Effectively Engage The Technical Introvert

By ATR International |   Tue, Apr 29, 2014 @ 08:20 AM

We all know the common stereotype of an IT professional – socially awkward loners who enjoy spending most of their time in front of a computer screen. Behind this stereotype though are the very real differences between introverts and extroverts. We live in a world that overly rewards the socially outgoing extrovert, misunderstands introverts, and therefore undervalues and underappreciates their contributions to the workplace.

The 3 Keys To Recruit And Hire The Best IT Talent

By ATR International |   Thu, Apr 17, 2014 @ 08:05 AM

By far the question I am asked most often is “how can I find the best IT workers,” and recently, with the job market for many areas statistically at 0%, “how can I find any IT workers!” I also field questions about how to retain those workers – whether it is ensuring that a consultant stays on through the duration of a finite project or retaining key permanent employees. People are unpredictable and motivated by numerous different things and not all of them are in your control. But there are things you can pay attention to that can make a difference. In our new eBook, The 3 Critical Things You Must Do To Attract The Very best IT Talent, ATR provides our advice on what you can do to find, attract and retain the best performers in the industry.

Perhaps control is the wrong word, too definitive – influence is a better choice. While there is great diversity and range in what matters to an employee, there is also some consensus about the things that most people care about. Based on these factors, there are concrete actions that you can take to make your company more attractive to the top professionals that you want to hire.

Why Technology Trends Matter To Your Business

By ATR International |   Mon, Nov 18, 2013 @ 08:38 AM

The current year is waning and the new one looms just ahead, which means we’ll be reading plenty about hot trends and what 2014 holds – in fashion, entertainment, weather, business, in everything it seems. The predictions will come fast and furious in the next few weeks and in fact have already started. For example, Gartner Research recently published its annual Top 10 strategic technology trends that “have the potential to affect individuals, businesses and IT organizations. This year's list reflects the increasing impact of the Nexus of Forces: mobile, social, cloud and information.” Their report is interesting and offers food for thought on what the upcoming year will bring in IT. Over the next few months, I’m sure I’ll read more research and opinions, and probably pass a few of them along to the readers of Staffing 360

3 Reasons To Find Your Next Job Through An IT Staffing Firm

By ATR International |   Wed, Oct 09, 2013 @ 09:55 AM

At this point everyone in our industry is aware of the historically low levels of unemployment in IT. The competition for skilled IT workers of all types has been hot for a while now and shows little sign of abating, particularly in areas like project management and development. Salaries are on the rise and some of the perks and benefits being offered haven’t been seen in years. While hiring overall in the current economy still seems sluggish and many job seekers report multiple rounds of interviews and long hiring processes, sometimes months, in the IT world good candidates don’t last on the market more than a few weeks, sometimes they’re gone even faster.

IT Employee Retention is More Important Than Hiring

By ATR International |   Thu, May 09, 2013 @ 08:46 AM

TechServe Alliance reports that IT employment hit another high-note in April, with 4.4+ million people working in the industry. Those numbers almost guarantee that the competition for top IT talent will continue to be heated and that finding the best workers with the most in-demand skills will remain challenging. The corollary to this is always that retention becomes equally, if not more, important and as much effort as you put in to recruiting, you need to match it in ensuring you retain your best and most critical employees.

STEM Industries Can Learn From Professional Sports

By ATR International |   Thu, Mar 21, 2013 @ 08:55 AM

The news is filled with stories about the shortage of trained workers and the trouble companies are having filling positions. This is especially true in the technology and engineering fields, where unemployment has remained lower and in many disciplines barely exists at all. It makes it challenging to find and retain people especially in the so called STEM industries. There is ongoing discussion about how to fix the problem.
