An estimated 12% of chief information officers (CIOs) anticipate adding information technology (IT) personnel in the second quarter of 2009 and 4% plan staff reductions in the next three months, according to the latest Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Index and Skills Report.

 

This represents a net 8% increase. The majority of respondents, 78%, plan to maintain current staffing levels.
