2022 trends tech employers should know

Posted by Tilt Recruitment on May 20, 2022

New data reveals a massive shakeup in IT in 2022. A poll by learning platform TalentLMS and Workable shows that 72% of tech workers are considering a job change. Why is the “Great Resignation” gathering speed just as tech is beginning to recover from the pandemic? And what can you do as an employer to attract and retain top tech talent?

Spiceworks’ new 2022 State of IT report suggests the future is looking brighter for IT professionals–who were having a challenging time managing cyberthreats and migration to the cloud even before the pandemic forced them to figure out how to support a remote workforce almost overnight.


With recovery underway, the report reveals a wealth of opportunities for IT workers in 2022:

  1. Companies are hiring

Many businesses are growing their teams, putting more resources into hybrid work, and modernising their IT stacks–all of which mean more jobs for IT professionals, with 40% of organizations planning to expand their teams in 2022, and 68% looking to hire up to 50 developers.


  1. More home working

Companies are moving to support home working. 27% of IT professionals now work from home part-time, and 11% full-time–-and with 76% saying they prefer it, these numbers look set to grow in 2022.


  1. More career advancement

Raises and promotions for IT professionals are on the up, as are tech certifications and job-switching. All these trends are expected to continue in 2022.


  1. More tech adoption

With budgets starting to recover from the pandemic, companies are expected to invest more in new technologies, creating more opportunities for IT professionals.


How can you attract and retain top tech talent?

  • Competitive pay.- Salaries for skilled IT professionals rose by 9.5% in 2021. Make sure your benchmarking is up to date.
  • Benefits and perks – Many IT companies are updating their benefits packages for the new era and offering sign-on bonuses to stay competitive.
  • Learning and career development – 9 out of 10 IT professionals want more learning and development opportunities, especially in technologies that help them stay relevant in the job market. Upskilling your existing employees will not only reduce the need to hire but also help you retain staff.
  • Flexible scheduling – Flexibility is no longer a perk; it’s a must-have. Make sure you offer as much flexibility in both place and schedule as possible.
