For a while now, the IT market has been an employee’s market. There are fewer and fewer candidates in relation to the ever-increasing needs. Nowadays, software developers stay at one company for an average of 2 years. It is anticipated that the time will shorten even further, down to as few as 6 months!
In order to acquire and retain talents at an organisation, companies try to outdo each other when offering employee benefits, although these benefits are slowly losing their original importance. Employers who subsidise babysitters or weddings of their employees are no longer an exception. When choosing their employer, candidates from the IT sector place ever-greater value on participation in interesting and challenging projects, good communication within the company – especially between supervisors and subordinates – as well as the opportunity to shape their own growth and the growth of the company.
