Only 29% IT workers wish to stay with current employers globally
The IT talent retention challenge varies by age group and region. For example, IT workers aged under 30 report two and a half times less likelihood to stay than those over 50. Only 19.9 per cent of IT workers who are 18 to 29 have a high likelihood to stay, compared to 48.1 per cent of those aged 50-70 years. Data shows that more flexible and human-centric work policies can reduce attrition and increase performance

Only 29.1 per cent of IT workers have high intent to stay with their current employer globally, but the number is much lower in Asia (19.6 per cent), according to a new Gartner report.
IT workers are more inclined to quit their jobs than employees in other functions, with a 10.2 per cent lower intent to stay than non-IT employees — the lowest out of all corporate functions.
Even in Europe, the best performing region, only four in 10 IT workers (38.8 per cent) have high intent to stay.
“While talent retention is a common C-level concern, CIOs are at the epicentre, with a huge chunk of their workforce at risk,” said Graham Waller, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner.
