IT workers grow relentlessly, and young people respect young people – Gartner

Only 29.1% of IT employees have firm plans to stay with their current employer, according to The latest Global Labor Market Survey from Gartner.

Depending on where these IT workers are located, that number may be much lower. In Asia, only 19.6% have a high resolution to stay in their current job; in Australia and New Zealand, only 23.6% feel the same; and in Latin America, the number is 26.9%. Even in Europe, the best performing region, only four in ten IT workers (38.8%) expect to remain in their current organizations, according to the survey.

Overall, IT workers are 10.2% less likely to stay in a job than non-IT employees, according to the survey. This is the lowest of all corporate functions.

For many IT employees, who are now in peak demand due to the pandemic and the rise of the hybrid workplace, this is a time to reflect on career and lives.

“There has never been a better time than now to find your career and the company you want to work for and your value proposition,” said Graham Waller, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner. “IT workers will have no more choice than they do now.”

The Gartner Global Labor Market Survey includes more than 18,000 employees in 40 countries, including 1,755 employees in the IT function in Q421.
