State of the CIO

  • State of the CIO-
    More than 60 percent of global CIOs saw a salary freeze in 2009, with about one in 10 getting a salary cut. Yet 59 percent of CIOs believe executive remuneration should be restrained until the economic recovery is more stable, and 72 percent said they would consider freezing or cutting their own salary to improve their organization's financial stability.

The results of a global survey administered by Harvey Nash and PA Consulting show CIOs are under pressure as they help bring their companies out of the recession and prepare for a new competitive landscape. The evidence suggests the recession is affecting job satisfaction for some CIOs. The good news: Many tech execs see their role as becoming more strategic. The bad news: A significant number of CIOs saw their salaries frozen in 2009 or even took a pay cut. Ann All discussed these trends and more with Andy Bookless, director of Government Services for Harvey Nash and project lead for the CIO Survey 2010 in a recent interview.
