IT teams are dealing with rapid technology changes with increased retraining and skill development, according to a report by trade association CompTIA.

Seven in 10 HR professionals surveyed who work with IT personnel said they plan a substantially increased effort to help workers re-skill in the coming year, with larger firms reporting a particularly strong emphasis in that area.

Nearly 80 per cent of IT HR professionals employed at such companies rated re-skilling or up-skilling as “more important” for the coming year, in contrast to 68 per cent at medium-sized firms and 52 per cent at smaller businesses.

These numbers mark a changed relationship between employers and tech, according to CompTIA director of education and ed tech Stephanie Morgan, adding that the pandemic helped force companies to rethink the way they deal with their workers. “Businesses have realised they have to talk about people like they’re people, not like they’re assets,” she said.

Larger firms were also more likely to report strong intent to hire new IT staff soon, with 74 per cent saying they planned more technology hires in the coming year, compared to less than half of smaller companies, according to the report.
