UK Recession Benefits IT Industry
According to research from Ranstad Technologies, the UK recession has had a positive impact on the IT industry.
A recent survey suggested the economic slump had led to positive changes in business, in terms of cost reduction and efficiency.
Mike Beresford, managing director of Ranstad Technologies said: "The recession forced many companies to look at where costs could be saved, processes could be streamlined and teams could be managed more effectively.
"Trimming the fat may have meant increased workloads and targets for those left behind, but these changes have helped staff get used to working in a leaner environment, giving them better experience and a more honed skillset than they might have developed had more staff been around to share the workload.
"The IT and technology sector is one of the most dynamic and fast-moving industries on the planet. Technology is constantly reshaping the way companies do business and this was even more prevalent over the course of the downturn.
"As a result, tech staff are far more used to handling change than many other industries, and it's extremely encouraging to see that so many employees are keen for further change to be implemented for the sector to continue striding forward."
