Indianapolis CIOs report on Q4 hiring plans; local projections above national results

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A net 9 percent of chief information officers (CIOs) in the Indianapolis area expect to hire information technology (IT) professionals in the fourth quarter of 2008, according to the most recent Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Index and Skills Report. Twelve percent of executives surveyed plan to add staff during the quarter and 3 percent anticipate reductions in personnel. The net 9 percent increase is down one point from the area’s third-quarter 2008 forecast but one point above the national average.

The local results reflect a two-quarter rolling average based on interviews with 200 CIOs from a stratified random sample of companies in the Indianapolis area with 100 or more employees; 1,400 executives were queried for the national data. (To view the national results, visit http://www.rht.com/PressRoom.) The studies were conducted by an independent research firm and developed by Robert Half Technology, a leading provider of IT professionals on a project and full-time basis. Robert Half Technology has been tracking IT hiring activity in the United States since 1995.

“IT hiring projections for the fourth quarter indicate greater activity in the Indianapolis area compared to the national forecast,” said Katherine Spencer Lee, executive director of Robert Half Technology. “Organizations are directing recruitment efforts toward professionals who can provide essential services — such as help desk and networking — and support the launch of Web 2.0 based functionality.”

About the IT Hiring Index
First published in 1995, the Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Index and Skills Report was conducted by an independent research firm and is based on more than 1,400 telephone interviews with CIOs from a random sample of U.S. companies with 100 or more employees. For the study to be statistically representative and ensure that companies from all segments were represented, the sample was stratified by geographic region, industry and employee size. The results were then weighted to reflect the proper proportions of employee size within each region.
