Local tech recruitment firm Sourced has it’s finger on the pulse when it comes to major trends in the tech sector. In it’s 10thyear, the Sourced Report provides Canterbury and Auckland technology professionals with the most up to date trends and changes occurring in the respective markets.
The September report, which has just been released, saw some intriguing changes regarding hiring activity, in both Christchurch and Auckland, with a new key reason for hiring emerging for the first time in a long time as businesses move into the next phase of the projects they had planned. It also served as a pertinent reminder around the things that IT professionals value, and why they value those things, in particular around work/ life balance. Flexibility really came to the fore in this report, and it is expected that this will be a key trend long-term, with more businesses recognising its importance to retention and making strides in this direction.
The team was also pleased to see a steady increase in the number of women who participated in this survey. It is anticipated that this will increase further ahead of the next report where a year-on-year comparison can be made.
