Furthermore, 37% of organisations in Ireland are actively investing in digital labour, 2% more than the global average. A figure greater than both Germany (33%) and Canada (28%).
Sonya Curley, Managing Director at Harvey Nash Ireland, comments: “Irish organisations clearly understand that embracing digital leadership is integral to upholding their continued success and dominance in the tech industry. It is hugely encouraging to see that Irish companies are ahead of the curve when it comes to hiring strategically for digital leadership.
“Companies here are getting to grips with the idea that investment in digital labour helps rather than hinders business productivity, as it frees up time for workers to focus on more strategic tasks.”
The study also found just 13% of Chief Intelligence Officers (CIO) in Ireland moved jobs within the last year, indicating a high level of job satisfaction, security and stability.
“Job security and retention are of vital importance to businesses, especially as the war for talent is so fierce,” adds Curley. “That CIOs in Ireland are both comfortable and secure in their positions is a testament to the flourishing tech industry here and further proves Irish organisations’ prominence in digital leadership on an international level.”
