Fourteen percent of CIOs polled for the Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Index and Skills Report expect to add IT staff in the fourth quarter of 2007, and 2 percent anticipate cutbacks. The net 12 percent hiring increase compares with net increases of 15 percent projected last quarter and 10 percent projected one year ago. The majority of respondents, 83 percent, foresee no change in fourth-quarter hiring.

The Hiring Index and Skills Report is based on interviews with more than 1,400 CIOs from a stratified random sample of U.S. companies with 100 or more employees. It was conducted by an independent research firm and developed by Robert Half Technology, a leading provider of IT professionals on a project and full-time basis. The company has been tracking IT hiring activity in the U.S. since 1995.
