Most CIOs are content with their headcount according to the latest IT Hiring Index and Skills Report from Menlo Park, Calif.-based Robert Half Technology.

Conversely, only 8% plan to add staff, and only 6% said they plan on reducing IT personnel.

Among the other findings was that help desk, technical support and networking are the job areas experiencing the most growth.
