Hiring a specialist to work in the IT industry

The passion for technology that can be seen in Warsaw influences constant technological innovation. However, it is worth paying attention to the importance of this location. Do programmers want to always work from the office, or maybe remote work is more important to them? Below we present some data on this topic that we collected from our report.

The current and optimal number of remote work days per week for IT specialists - Next Technology Professionals report 2024

Among respondents to the online survey, as many as 67% of surveyed programmers work remotely full-time, even though only 55% of IT specialists prefer this form of cooperation. There is an increase in interest in hybrid work among this group. However, it was the possibility of remote work that was indicated by 78% of people as the most preferred non-wage benefit. We also noted that compared to 2022, more people are ready to change their employer if they receive an interesting job offer.

Due to the growing demand for experts in this field, flexibility in the approach to work (remote or hybrid) is becoming more and more important. Attractive earnings in the IT industry (find out more about IT earnings for 2024 in the article), benefits and professional development opportunities are key to finding and hiring the best IT experts for work.

Why is it worth using the support of an IT recruitment agency?

Despite the IT crisis and the changing situation in the industry that we have been observing since 2023, there is still a great demand on the labor market for recruiting programmers and other IT experts.

Using the services of IT recruitment agencies seems to be a good solution, especially if the company is looking for highly qualified specialists and the recruitment process should be short and effective. If you are wondering what the advantages and disadvantages of such services are, we have described them in this article.

The advantages include: a thorough process confirmed by the results, cooperation full of trust and commitment, exchange guarantee, knowledge of the labor market in the IT industry and the experience of recruiters.

Some of the IT recruitment agencies prepare reports on the IT job market

Some IT recruitment agencies in Poland regularly publish reports on the labor market in this industry. Such reports provide reliable data that enable you to make IT recruitment decisions based on solid foundations. According to our report prepared at the beginning of 2024, in 2023 most job offers were addressed to people with medium professional experience, referred to as Mids, i.e. those with 2-4 years of experience. Using such reports significantly facilitates the IT recruitment process of programmers, allowing you to rely on real data developed by specialists in the IT recruitment industry. Thanks to this, agencies can provide recruitment services at the highest level, adapting to current trends and needs of the labor market.
