Despite layoffs, tech workers still have the upper hand. Here’s what they want.
Layoffs have been on the rise in the tech world for several months, but so have salaries for tech workers. It’s one of many disconnects in an intense battle for talent that continues to vex employers — particularly those companies on the hunt for workers with tech skills. “The hiring climate this year has been full of contradictions and challenges,” said Josh Brenner, CEO of Hired Inc. “We’ve seen climbing salaries, aggressive hiring, and layoffs — all at once.” Hired, a San Francisco-based job matching platform, recently analyzed more than 907,000 job interview requests and conducted a survey of more than 2,000 tech workers to spotlight changing dynamics in the recruitment arena.
