Organizations don’t seem concerned with the loss of skills based on Baby Boomer retirement. Just slightly more than one-quarter (27 percent) of IT leaders foresee the loss of skills due to Baby Boomer retirement as a problem for their organization. Sixty-three percent felt it would not cause an issue, while 10 percent had no opinion. Additionally, of the 27 percent of respondents who did see Baby Boomer retirement as a problem, only 15 percent had any retention programs to encourage Baby Boomers to postpone retirement.

TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, recently released new research showing that IT leaders are almost evenly split on expectations regarding budget increases for 2013. Additionally, IT leaders are gravitating toward investing in core application and infrastructure services and staff, with a greater interest in permanent hiring. Finally, the vast majority of organizations have no concern regarding loss of skills as it relates to baby boomer retirement.

More than 600 IT leaders (CIOs, IT VPs, IT directors, IT managers) were polled in September 2012 to understand the current state of IT spending, skills needs and workforce issues to identify critical areas. The full results of the survey, a video and infographic are available from TEKsystems.
