“Software is eating the world” - Marc Andreessen
For everything that changed in 2020, one thing that stayed the same was the importance of technology to business success.
In fact, the importance grew as organizations had to quickly restructure their operations to support remote workforce and improve flexibility and resiliency.
Heading into 2021, the demand for IT professionals continues to grow worldwide as more companies are looking for their next software developer, scrum master or engineer.
"The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted that the ability to rapidly adapt and respond to unplanned/unforeseen business disruptions will be a clearer determiner of success in our increasingly digitalized economy. A large percentage of a future enterprise's revenue depends upon the responsiveness, scalability, and resiliency of its infrastructure, applications, and data resources."
Remote work is trending as stats show remotely working employee’s growth from 4% (2020) to around 49% (2021)
Companies should avoid including “degree required” on their job ads as it might cost them a professional hire.
Over 1/3 of developers hired are not formally educated
Freedom of choice
While recruiters battle over tech talent in 2021, the talents have the freedom to choose who – and where they work for.
Developers value flexible working hours, technical stack and challenges more than salary
In addition, many developers do not find the job listings posted as a huge percentage of the greatest talent out there is not looking.
In 2021, organizations should consider three key strategic opportunities both to recover from the COVID-19 crisis and boldly position themselves to thrive in the future:
Redoubling digital transformation efforts
Reorienting and reskilling the workforce
Focus on improving flexibility, transparency and practices
