科技专业人士和雇主在2020年各自在寻找什么?

技术专家和雇佣他们的公司都有自己独特的需求、目标和挑战。工人们经常面临这样的问题:他们是应该留在现在的雇主那里,还是去其他地方寻找机会?公司经常需要他们可能找不到的有技术和资格的工人。来自LaSalle Network的两份最新报告对专业技术人员和雇主在未来一年都想要什么做了一些说明。

为了撰写“技术专家真正想要什么”的报告,LaSalle Network对6000多名技术专业人士进行了调查,以了解他们在2020年对公司和职业的追求。在受访者中,83%的人说他们愿意接受新的机会,而53%的人说他们在过去一年中收到了一到三份工作邀请。

当被问及为何愿意接受目前公司以外的新工作机会时,受访者表示,有更多的发展机会、更高的薪酬和更好的福利。技术人员最想要的福利是401(k)退休福利、带薪休假和在家工作的选择。尽管受访者表示,经济增长是他们寻求新机会的首要动机,但他们认为工作/生活平衡是留在现任雇主身边的主要原因。

其次,专业人士最常寻求的认证是CompTIA A+、Network+和项目管理专业人士。技术专家也希望在某些特定领域加强他们的技能。随着云计算成为如此热门的话题,55%的受访者表示,他们希望提高自己在亚马逊网络服务(AWS)方面的技能,而14%的受访者正考虑使用微软Azure。编程语言是另一个受欢迎的领域,有38%的人表示他们希望提高自己在SQL、Java和Python方面的能力。在软件开发方面,66%的人表示希望提高Scrum技能,11%的人希望提高看板技能。

另一方面,雇主们也有自己的需求清单。在“2020年招聘挑战报告”中,LaSalle Network调查了100名财务、运营和人力资源领域的领导者,以确定他们未来的目标。美国经济和就业市场依然强劲,80%的受访者说,去年有关经济可能衰退的言论没有影响他们的招聘计划。整整70%的受访者计划在今年增加员工,其中40%打算填补IT职位。

除了雇佣更多的工人,雇主们今年还打算投资于其他领域。近40%的受访者表示,他们的公司将在未来12个月内对技术进行投资。另一个投资领域将是培训和发展,因为企业认识到,留住熟练员工需要对他们进行投资。

自动化有望进一步扩展到商业领域。约33%的受访者表示,他们去年实现了部分员工的自动化,这一数字在未来10年还将上升。在已经实现自动化的公司中,60%的公司表示,它们提供了再培训项目,以帮助员工留在公司。

雇主们也面临着他们自己的一系列挑战。在接受调查的受访者中,71%的人认为找到熟练工人是他们最大的招聘挑战。

更具体地说,人力资源管理学会(Society of Human Resources Management)列出了许多求职者缺少的三大软技能:1)解决问题、批判性思维、创新和创造力;2)具有处理复杂性和模糊性的能力;和3)通信。应聘者缺少的一些硬技能包括数据分析、科学、医学和工程。

确定符合公司文化的候选人是另一项挑战,62%的受访者认为这是最重要的,远高于去年36%的比例。

最后,薪酬要求是雇主面临的第三大挑战,58%的受访者列出了这个问题。约60%的受访者说,他们计划今年加薪以保持竞争力,约33%的受访者计划增加福利。

Technology professionals and the companies that employ them all have their own unique needs, goals, and challenges. Workers often face the question of whether they should stay with their current employer or explore opportunities elsewhere. And companies are often in need of skilled and qualified workers that they may not be able to find. Two new reports from LaSalle Network shed some light on what tech pros and employers both want in the year ahead.

For its report "What Do Technologists Really Want," LaSalle Network surveyed more than 6,000 tech professionals to find out what they're seeking in a company and career in 2020. Among the respondents, 83% said they're open to new opportunities, while 53% said they've received anywhere from one to three job offers over the past year.

Asked why they're open to new offers away from their present company, those surveyed cited more opportunity for growth, higher compensation, and better benefits. The top benefits that tech pros want are a 401(k) match, paid time off, and an option to work from home. While respondents pointed to growth as the top motivation for seeking new opportunities, they cited a work/life balance as the main reason for staying with their current employer.

Next, the certifications that professionals most frequently seek are CompTIA A+, Network+, and Project Management Professional. Tech pros are also looking to beef up their skills in some specific areas. With cloud computing such a hot topic, 55% of the respondents said they want to improve their skills in Amazon Web Services (AWS), while 14% are looking at Microsoft Azure. Programming languages is another popular field as 38% said they want to improve their prowess with SQL, 25% with Java, and 25% with Python. Looking at software development, 66% said they want to enhance their skills in Scrum and 11% in Kanban.

On the flip side, employers have their own laundry list of needs. For its "2020 Hiring Challenges report," LaSalle Network surveyed 100 leaders in finance, operations, and human resources to ascertain their goals ahead. The economy and job market remain strong as 80% of the respondents said that the talk last year of a possible recession hasn't affected their hiring plans. A full 70% of those surveyed plan to add headcount this year, with 40% looking to fill IT jobs.

Beyond hiring more workers, employers are aiming to invest in other areas this year. Almost 40% of the respondents said that their company would make investments in technology in the next 12 months. Another area for investment will be training and development as companies realize that retaining skilled staff requires investing in them.

Automation is expected to expand further into the business world. Around 33% of the respondents said they automated parts of their workforce last year, a number that will rise over the next decade. And among the companies that have automated, 60% said they provided retraining programs to help employees stay with the organization.

Employers also face their own set of challenges. Among those surveyed, 71% cited the ability to find skilled workers as their biggest hiring challenge.

More specifically, the Society of Human Resources Management listed the top three missing soft skills in many job candidates as: 1) Problem solving, critical thinking, innovation, and creativity; 2) An ability to deal with complexity and ambiguity; and 3) Communication. Some of the hard skills missing in candidates include data analysis, science, medical, and engineering.

Identifying candidates who fit the company culture was another challenge, cited as a top one by 62% of those surveyed, up dramatically from 36% in last year's survey.

Finally, compensation requirements was the third-largest challenge among employers, listed by 58% of the respondents. Some 60% said they plan to increase salaries this year to remain competitive, while around 33% plan to add benefits.
