Job Satisfaction Soars Among IT Workers, Outpacing All Other Industries

If there’s one thing Information Technology employees love, it’s their jobs: Seventy-two percent of workers currently in IT report being satisfied with their job, higher than any other industry, and only 15 percent said they plan on switching jobs in the coming year.

Contributing to the high satisfaction rates could be the fact that 75 percent of employers plan to increase compensation for existing employees – up from 71 percent last year – while 54 percent plan to offer higher starting salaries for new IT employees – up significantly from 42 percent last year.  Most increases will be 4 percent or less.
