The shortage of work-force is best seen in IT&C industry, where companies are struggling to retain the employees they have while 55 percent of them think they can get more money elsewhere and only 34 percent says they are paid according to the company’s possibilities and more than would be in other places, says

According to the study “IT & C human resources market barometer – How do IT & C companies succeed in motivating their employees?” conducted by NNC Services, a marketing and communications agency specializing in employer branding services for IT & C, more than a hundred thousand people are currently working in this sector, with relatively low labor costs that have generated a 75 percent increase in the number of employees in just six years. However, the IT & C industry faces great challenges of labor availability and retention. The third market study by NNC Services outlines an image of human resources in the IT & C industry and analyzes employees’ perceptions of motivational factors in local companies.

The study is based on the answers of more than 500 IT & C employees, specializing in different technologies, coming from cities with a significant number of companies in the IT & C industry such as Bucharest, Iasi, Cluj-Napoca and Timisoara.

About 78.9 percent of IT & C employees are part of the Millennials generation (20-34 years old), 19.8 percent of generation X (35-49), while Baby Boomers (over 50) are minority in this area (1.3 percent). Although they are young, employees in the IT industry have been able to gain considerable experience in this area. Approximately 40 percent of employees between the ages of 20 and 24 are already 2-4 years old in the workplace, the employee life starting from the banks of the faculties.
