CIOs Planning To Hire
While leaders have spent the past few years building out their teams and adding employees at a particularly rapid pace in order to get initiatives up and running, they are now looking to add strategic full-time hires to manage the systems, processes, and changes they've spent so much time implementing, Reed noted. 
During the recession, IT hiring was substantially different. Robert Half Technology, which used to do quarterly surveys, found that only 14% of CIOs planned to hire in the third quarter of 2008, and only 11% of them did in the fourth quarter. Then in 2009, that dropped down to 8% in the third quarter and 6% in the fourth. By the time 2010 rolled around, IT hiring picked up slightly to 10% in the third quarter and 9% in the fourth.
