"What tech hiring or job seeking trends do you expect to see in 2022?"

IT Salaries

Phill Perkins
Vice President

"If 2021 was all about taking risks and jumping into new companies, I think in 2022 we might finally start seeing a slowdown in turnover and a stabilization throughout the tech industry. 2022 is going to be about companies and employees continuing to prove their worth. With the dramatic increase in salaries over the past year and the increase in resignations resulting in higher turnover, both sides of the equation will have to work to keep everyone happy and successful.

"As we look to the year ahead, the tech companies that are most willing to adapt to their employees’ needs will be the most successful in both attracting and retaining talent. In particular, the ability to retain employees is now more important than ever as we see the talent shortage continuing to widen.  Whether that be offering a hybrid work setup, increasing benefits, or improving flexibility to prevent burnout, building an employee-first culture should be the focus in 2022.

Milenko Beslic
VP of Engineering

"believe that 2022 will see even more of an emphasis on diversity and inclusion inside the tech industry. The tech world has always been at its best when everyone has a unique voice at the table. Companies are realizing that having different perspectives is a driver of success, and with 100% remote opportunities becoming normalized, companies can go beyond the main tech hubs to find great IT talent that normally would not get the opportunity.
