  • 4. UK OVERVIEW Welcome to the Hudson IT Salary & Employment Insights for 2013. We will give you an overview of all our UK results before focusing in more depth on the IT market. As your trusted advisor, we take pride in our comprehensive understanding of the recruitment business and factors affecting it including the expectations of organisations and their people. The challenging market conditions faced by UK businesses in recent years show little signs of easing and businesses are being encouraged to adapt to these conditions. Over the next 12 months, UK organisations need to equip themselves with the people they need to move through the next phase of their economic cycles. Never before has it been more vital and beneficial for organisations and job seekers to align their expectations. To ensure we have a complete understanding of how organisations feel about the upcoming year, we surveyed employers and employees to ascertain what impact the challenging economic environment is having on businesses. We looked at its effect on work practices, compensation and benefits and, importantly, employee engagement, morale, loyalty and job seeking behaviour. The survey revealed that workplaces are under stress and employees are expected to shoulder more responsibility. When asked what happens when a member of staff leaves, both employers and employees agreed that less than a quarter of roles were replaced and when a colleague is not replaced, 72% of employers and 79% of employees said, the additional workload was distributed amongst the remaining team.

Nevertheless, people are optimistic about the year ahead with 52% reporting that morale in their office had increased or remained the same. With over three quarters of employees surveyed categorising themselves as passively or actively seeking a new role, organisations are encouraged to look at creative benefit packages to attract and retain the best talent. The survey highlighted a level of disparity between the benefits employees are seeking and what is being offered by the market. Organisations who employ a level of flexibility with regard to benefit offerings could quite well find themselves at an advantage in 2013. In spite of the current economic challenges, employers are prophesying encouraging movements for the coming 12 months. Nearly half of employers are confident there is the potential for growth within their organisations and over a third are predicting head count increases in 2013. Rewarding high performers looks to be a business priority in 2013 and financial reward is back on the table with 72% expecting an increase in salary budgets and nearly half intend to award bonuses in 2013. Read on to see the full results of our UK and sector wide Salary & Employment Insights survey, as well as proposed salaries and recruitment trends for IT for 2013. Methodology The salary survey was conducted over a three week period in January 2013, in which Hudson surveyed employers and employees online. In-house recruitment specialists and managing directors were surveyed for the purpose of gaining detailed regional and sector specific employment overviews. Current salary information was derived from Hudson’s internal database and quality checked against survey data. LONDON 53% 47%63% 37% 2013 SALARY & EMPLOYMENT INSIGHTS 5
  • 6. Recent months have been defined by talk of economic uncertainty and the picture is still evolving. With the Bank of England forecasting growth to remain below 1% and a eurozone outlook that remains troubled it’s not surprising that economic uncertainty is causing many businesses to start making contingency plans. Whilst the general outlook for the economy is a cautious one, the outlook for business growth and employment is predicted to gradually improve across the UK in 2013. According to the British Chamber of Commerce, business investment recovered strongly in the last two quarters of 2012 and is predicted to grow by 4.3% in 2013. This investment will likely help stimulate growth in the labour market leading to the creation of new jobs. The future of the UK economy remains unclear. To succeed businesses must remain agile, adapt to a slow growth environment and respond to evolving economic conditions. Workplaces remain under stress The demanding economic environment looks set to have a continued effect on workplaces with two thirds of employers believing their businesses will face tougher market conditions in 2013. Of those surveyed, 42% reported redundancies in the past 12 months, while 64% reported greater pressures on budgets, 55% observed increases in employee workload and 54% faced more stringent headcount approvals. It’s not only employers that are under pressure in this difficult business environment; 1 in 4 employees report an increase in their working hours and 43% now work more than 40 hours per week. Continued pressure on budgets has meant that only 24% of employers are always replacing roles if a member of the team leaves. In cases where the roles are not replaced, 72% of employers distribute the work amongst the remaining team members, with only 5% employing a contractor and 9% absorbing the extra workload themselves. Nearly half of employees said they are more stressed at work than a year ago, so it is perhaps not surprising to find a similar trend in morale levels with 48% saying they are more pessimistic than 12 months ago. Over three quarters of surveyed employees are actively (40%) or passively (36%) seeking new jobs. Of those surveyed, 57% anticipate changing jobs within 12 months. Levels of employee engagement at work are almost a perfect three way split between more engaged, less engaged and neutral so it is perhaps surprising to also find that 62% are reported as saying that they would recommend their employer. Rewarding high performance is a business priority While employees are expected to shoulder more responsibility, greater workloads and are working longer hours, the majority of employers appear to be acknowledging this by awarding pay rises. Most employers (72%) awarded pay rises in the last 12 months and seven in ten anticipate a further increase at the next salary review. The majority (59%) also indicated that modest pay increases of 1-5% were likely to be awarded in 2013. Interestingly, just over a third of employees believe an increase in salary is warranted in 2013 because their skills and experience are in high demand outside the organisation. ACHIEVE MORE WITH LESS – IS THIS THE COMMERCIAL REALITY FOR 2013? 64% REPORT GREATER PRESSURE ON BUDGETS 64% 55% 55% SAW AN INCREASE IN EMPLOYEE WORKLOAD 54% FACE MORE STRINGENT HEADCOUNT APPROVALS 54% 42% 42% HAVE SEEN REDUNDANCIES IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS 33% EXPERIENCED HIRING FREEZES 33% 23% USED MORE STRINGENT ASSESSMENT PROCESSES 23% HOW ARE CHALLENGING MARKET CONDITIONS IMPACTING BUSINESSES? 2013 SALARY & EMPLOYMENT INSIGHTS6
  • 7. The main reasons businesses increased salaries were to retain high performers and ensure pay parity. Over half of the employers (53%) surveyed indicated they would reward high performers with pay rises and a third (34%) are willing to award a pay rise in order to keep up with movements in living costs. Nearly half (49%) of employers indicated they were worried about losing staff and this concern may be warranted as 43% of employees felt they were inadequately rewarded for their increasing responsibility to the business. Four in ten employees were awarded a bonus in 2012 and the majority of these equated to between 1-10% of their salary. Larger bonuses were not unheard of with 15% of those awarded being greater than 20% of salary. Despite the tough environment 47% of employers plan to award bonuses in the next 12 months, with the majority indicating bonuses would be awarded based on either individual (68%) or company performance (67%). A further 26% indicated they were yet to decide whether they would award bonuses, which correlates with the uncertainty in the market. To retain high performing staff Maintain employee living standards To reward contribution to the business 34% 31% WHAT ARE EMPLOYERS’ MAIN REASONS FOR GIVING A PAY RISE AT THE MOMENT? 53% To reward high level of performance Staff are taking on new / greater responsibilities Salaries for similar roles have increased 23% 22% 30% The organisation is more profitable than last year Staff overdue a rise / long time since last increase 20% 16% 2013 SALARY & EMPLOYMENT INSIGHTS 7
  • 8. Employees are looking for well-rounded packages It is not only employers that are feeling the effects of the economic turmoil; employees are all too aware of the on-going economic uncertainty and the effects it has on their lives. Many employees are valuing job security and progression opportunities and are less inclined to expect large salary or bonus packages. When asked to rank important aspects when considering new job opportunities, employees demonstrated two definite preferences for increased salaries and a better work / life balance. The majority (85%) of employees rated more pay within their top five, interestingly, the expectation of the level of increase was modest, with 71% indicating an acceptable salary increase for external roles was less than 15%. The second highest consideration was better work / life balance (74%) with 29% of employees ranking this as the number one reason they are attracted to a new opportunity. In general, employees showed a tendency towards non- monetary based aspects when considering new jobs. When asked to pick from a list of 17 aspects they look for when changing jobs, 61% of employees picked a non-monetary based option as their number one option. Company culture, convenient location and respected senior / managerial staff were all cited as factors in employees’ decision making processes. This suggests firms that choose to focus their attention on a combination of base salaries and tailored benefit packages are likely to be more attractive to prospective employees. Achieving a benefit balance With budget squeezes becoming an all too common commercial reality, businesses are showing a commitment to offering a range of benefits as part of the package. But it is important to get it right – 1 in 5 employees indicated a level of dissatisfaction with their current benefit package and there appears to be some disparity between what is offered and what is attractive to employees. Employers would be advised to look to adopt a range of non-monetary benefits to attract and retain talent. Only 49% of employers offer flexible working opportunities, whereas 65% of employees rated this in their top five most attractive benefits. After base annual salary, the top benefits offered by employers are contributory pension plan (72%), bonus and recognition (67%) and health benefits / insurances (54%). However, with the government NEST pension scheme being rolled out over the next few years, companies will no longer be able to offer this as an optional benefit so we will likely see a shift here. When we asked employees to nominate which benefits were most attractive to them, 86% placed bonus and recognition in their top five followed by flexible working opportunities (65%) and contributory pension plan (54%). Those least preferred included child care and paid maternity / paternity leave.

Growth is predicted Despite the current economic uncertainty, 48% of employers stated that they believe their department has growth potential in 2013. This growth is expected to manifest in a number of different ways. One third of employers believe their departments will see an increase in headcount in the next twelve months, while 44% expect headcounts to remain stagnant. 19% of employers reported an expected decline in headcount in 2013, and it is worth noting that this figure is significantly down from the 30% who reported the same expectation last year. The general outlook for 2013 is one of cautious optimism. Businesses are reporting expected growth but the commercial reality could be that employees will shoulder even greater responsibilities, as businesses strive to achieve this under the pressure of already tight budgets. Employees are taking on more responsibility and working longer hours, resulting in increased workplace stress and pessimism which could explain the large number of employees looking to move on in 2013. Employees feel they are not being adequately rewarded for increased workload and responsibilities, and want greater rewards. With pressure on remuneration budgets, businesses should increase their focus on non-monetary benefits as a way of retaining and incentivising staff. Stable jobs with flexible benefits are a key priority for employees rather than ever-increasing salaries. Results indicate that non-monetary benefits alone are enough to sway job seekers’ decisions. Employers who focus their attention on a combination of base salaries and tailored benefit packages are likely to be more attractive to prospective employees. 2013 SALARY & EMPLOYMENT INSIGHTS 9

  • 13. LONDON & THE SOUTH EAST The IT recruitment market in London and the South East entered 2013 on a steady stream which has marginally increased the levels of optimism since 2012. The actual number of jobs available remains low but has shown consistency and in some cases is better than expected. The IT market in London and the South East has been generally more buoyant than other sectors. Having realigned our business last year, Hudson’s bespoke focus and specialist networks within the IT sector are benefiting both our candidates and clients. During 2012 the public sector remained stable and we didn’t see the expected exodus early in the year. In fact, the public sector has experienced steady growth in the second half of 2012 onwards and we anticipate this growth will continue through 2013. The private sector remained cautious and growth has been fragile, however some companies have broken cover and started to implement their new IT strategies and technologies. 2012 saw considerable growth in the e-commerce and digital sector both from end users and digital agencies. We have also seen growth in the IT consultancy space with a demand for specialist skills to deliver key client wins. IT departments across London and the South East have reshaped, giving organisations the confidence to spend in IT to help drive companies out of the doldrums. Levels of growth were the strongest we had seen since the recession began and we witnessed consistency throughout the year in terms of hiring in both contract and permanent requirements. We are expecting this growth to continue throughout 2013. We are seeing many companies in London and the South East developing high performer identification and development plans to ensure staff retention. Social networking is now affordable and is accessible technology that lets individuals and communities come together in a new way. We are seeing companies understand the power of being at the front of this trend which is enabling change to happen more rapidly. During 2012 we continually heard companies talk about cloud computing and Salesforce, ‘hot’ technology areas last year. Cloud computing allows for a more flexible and scalable method of computing while Salesforce’s attraction is the cost benefit for small companies. Recently we have been hearing companies talk about the evolution of virtualisation, business intelligence and analytics and other systems to monitor recurring patterns that could develop into money making applications – this has been a big area for retail companies. The contracting/interim market space has been more steadfast than the permanent recruitment market. Coming out of 2012 and into 2013 we are definitely seeing a stronger demand for IT contracting and interim resources. This is because the UK’s flexible technology workforce is integral in helping businesses meet fluctuations in demand while moving organisations forward, utilising the innovative mind-set that contractors can bring to the work environment. Interestingly, salaries and pay rates across the region have tended to remain fairly static rather than decreasing, despite a surplus of candidates now being available. We are still seeing companies wanting an exact fit to their requirements and therefore the demand for candidates skilled specifically in niche technologies is increasing as is the variance on contractor rates for specialist skills. There are a number of areas where the requirement for highly skilled professionals is prevalent. Core development skills, project and programme management, business and process analysis, change and transformation expertise and e-commerce skills remain in high demand. Companies are now fully aware of being ‘digital’ and they are wanting to enhance their usage of the cloud, agile, social media, mobile and open resources – we are starting to see leadership positions such as Chief Digital Officer being considered as a key part of the senior IT leadership in all organisations.

  • 19. HOME COUNTIES & THE SOUTH WEST IT recruitment in the Home Counties and the South West regions were expected to be subdued at best in 2012. However, the levels of growth experienced were the strongest since 2008 and we witnessed consistency throughout the year in terms of hiring in both contract and permanent requirements. We expect to see similar levels of growth in IT recruitment in the Home Counties and South West throughout 2013. The public sector performed brilliantly in the second half of 2012 with substantial month-on-month growth seen from June 2012 onwards. We expect the growth of public sector recruitment to continue throughout 2013 but for levels of growth to begin to level out around mid-year. Growth in the private sector was subdued as private companies remained cautious in the current economic climate. We have seen a number of IT departments begin reshaping over the past year in an attempt to cut costs and make the most of new technologies. ERP and SAP have been particular buoyant technologies. IT departments across the Home Counties and the South West have demonstrated a clear focus on staff retention, thus achieving a reduction in HR costs and improved engagement resulting in greater productivity. The most effective engagement methods being considered are staff deployment and improved learning and development opportunities for employees. More and more companies are beginning to understand the power of social networking and the opportunities it offers to better engage with clients and customers. This has led to a significant growth in demand for IT professionals with knowledge and experience of working within a number of different social networks. We expect this trend to continue throughout 2013 and beyond. Recruitment demands constantly change to remain in line with current market trends and technologies. Early indicators from IT departments suggest that the evolution of virtualisation, business intelligence, cloud computing and analytics are going to be growth areas for 2013. Candidates skilled specifically in niche technologies have been in high demand in 2012 as companies looked to find individuals that perfectly fit their requirements. Core development skills, project and programme management, business and process analysis, change and transformation expertise, an Agile background and e-commerce skills were continually sought by a wide variety of different organisations. Contractors and interim staff played a huge part in the growth of IT recruitment across the Home Counties and the South West in 2012. The demand for contract and interim resources was comparable to those experienced during 2006/2007. Interestingly, salaries and pay rates across the region tended to remain fairly static rather than decreasing, despite a surplus of available resources or talent. IT departments have continued to grow as demand for IT professionals skilled in niche markets increases. An ever- increasing number of companies are looking to exploit the opportunities available to them through technologies such as cloud computing, Agile, social networking and mobile computing, to gain a competitive advantage over their rivals by truly embracing these opportunities and demonstrating commitment to remaining ahead by continually developing their utilisation methods.

  • 29. THE MIDLANDS & THE NORTH 2012 was widely expected to be a tough year for IT recruitment in the Midlands and the North. In reality however, the year exceeded expectations and proved to be one of the strongest years seen since the recession with steady growth both in permanent and contract recruitment. Hudson’s success in this area was a direct result of the commitment to develop specialists that deal specifically with individual skill sets allowing deeper market knowledge and assisting to develop stronger client and candidate networks. The public sector performed better than expected with the business growing significantly in the second half of 2012. This growth is expected to continue throughout 2013 and early indicators suggest that this will be the case. The private sector remained cautious throughout 2012 with a few companies of note implementing new strategies and technologies which have had a positive effect on recruitment. Mobile application development has been a particularly buoyant area as companies rush to get a piece of this fast-growing market. A number of IT departments have been reshaped to help drive change within organisations which has led to increased optimism and spend in IT recruitment. Companies are beginning to understand the benefits of staff retention and development, particularly with technology specialists. This has led to a shortage of IT professionals with niche skills and has increased the wages of those who perfectly fit a company’s demands. Now more than ever companies are looking to their IT departments to deliver change and efficiency. New technologies are offering exciting opportunities to cut costs and increase productivity and the opportunity to learn something new has proven a great tool to retain high performing employees. The explosion in social networking has offered companies a brand new way of interacting with their customers, clients and employees. The benefits of social networking and the rewards for being at the front of this trend has had a huge impact on IT departments and IT recruitment. One thing is clear; ignoring social networking is no longer an option for most companies and whether the companies are in the Midlands, the North or the rest of the UK this remains true. With technologies and trends changing so fast, it is essential that IT departments remain at the forefront of their field to exploit opportunities as they arise and gain an early mover advantage. Hot topics at the beginning of 2013 have included the evolution of virtualisation, business intelligence, analytics and other systems to monitor recurring patterns that could develop into money making applications. Demand for contracting and interim resources during 2012 saw a significant increase to levels comparable to those experienced in 2006/2007. The contracting space has performed better than the permanent recruitment market in 2012 and is expected to continue growing in 2013 albeit at a slightly slower rate. Contract and interim workers have been integral in helping businesses meet fluctuations in demand without tying companies down to long term expenditures. Salaries for contract and interim professionals throughout the Midlands and the North remained static in 2012 and are expected to stay at these levels for the foreseeable future. Companies now expect exact fits to their requirements when hiring and therefore the demand for candidates skilled specifically in niche technologies is increasing. Core development skills, business and process analysis, e-commerce skills and change and transformation expertise are currently in high demand in the Midlands and the North. With IT being the basis of so much that we do today, leadership positions such as Chief Digital Officer are now being considered as a key part of the senior IT leadership in all major organisations.

  • 35. SCOTLAND OF DEPARTING IT ROLES ARE ALWAYS REPLACED THIS IS THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE SHOWN ACROSS ALL SURVEYED INDUSTRIES 32% Despite uncertainty and economic fragility we were mildly optimistic about IT recruitment in Scotland in 2012. We found this optimism to be justified and believe that 2013 will continue to be a period of growth. However this growth is highlighting a major skills gap which continues to open up as demand increases. IT is synonymous with change and those changes have never been faster. Social media and analytics have invaded all corners of the enterprise while cloud computing and mobile apps have now become mainstream. Throughout 2012 we found that a number of our clients are finding it difficult to recruit professionals with the exact set of skills they required. This was accompanied by a worry about losing their staff during 2012 due to increased salary benefits expectations. Many of the trends we discussed in 2011/12 are now having a clear impact on our industry and on hiring patterns for 2013. These trends are clearly going to influence the market in 2013 and beyond. Scotland I.S has highlighted the gap in supply and demand recently, with almost 70% of respondents to their industry survey expecting to take on more people. However the majority believe they will locate the talent required in Scotland and the worry is the lack of appropriate skills is becoming a critical barrier to growth. The continued adoption of technology by the wider population and demand for mobile apps is resulting in the role profile of IT professionals evolving to match the need to deal with this. The personal attributes are changing too, for example, improved stakeholder management, communication skills, wider business knowledge and the ability to be nimble and drive change are all competencies that are more in demand than ever. Understanding business strategy and becoming more strategically focussed is no longer desirable but mandatory. Some business units are increasingly deploying their own systems and mobile apps and IT departments need to understand how they work and integrate them into the fabric of the organisation. IT talent therefore needs to be able to think in a strategic, business focussed way rather than simply managing servers and storage devices. 2013 is predicted by Accenture to be the year that companies plunge into big data projects and try to unlock the value that is held inside sometimes massive amounts of information. Analytics software is becoming more sophisticated and the new insights being gained are filtering into lines of business, allowing more agile and effective decision making. This trend is expected to accelerate in 2013 and have an impact on the skills required by organisations to ensure these projects are successful. The acceleration of digital enterprise and social media is forcing organisations to rethink business processes and interact in a more collaborative way with their customers. The growth in digital and mobile applications has resulted in organisations that need to be able to act in the agile manner that is necessary to respond to these changes. Mobile devices are becoming the norm and 2013 is expected to be the year when IT executives have to focus on creating a consistent experience across devices and browsers. It is going to be crucial that organisations design IT systems around mobility and ensure all services can be delivered through mobile channels. This change in emphasis has resulted in a skills shortage already in the digital and mobile technologies markets and the skills required to service this need are already in short supply as are solid developers with skills in JAVA or .NET and ORACLE. It is not just candidates with advanced stakeholder management skills and strong adaptation to change that have seen a climb in demand recently. With technology evolving at such a rapid speed, specialist technical skills are a must and organisations are keen to hire candidates with these abilities. Many companies are now placing great importance on having the right people with the right traits, knowledge and skills for gaining competitive agility. Despite the increase in IaaS and SaaS, organisations – especially those who are high growth SMEs - are loading up on IT talent and building up centres of technical excellence to spur innovation and to gain a competitive advantage in the market. These focussed recruitment exercises are further depleting the pool of skills available and increasing demand for highly skilled professionals. Our experience to date indicates that salaries in 2012 were coming under pressure. Clients are tending to base salaries and rates on their prior experience of recruiting a similar role which could have been over 18 months ago. If one is to embark on a rigorous sign off process for a role it makes sense to get it signed off at the correct level for the market initially. A primary concern for organisations in 2013, as in 2012, should be the quality and availability of skills within the permanent and contractor candidate pool. However, employers should be wary that salary on its own is not a talent attraction and/or retention strategy, and to treat it as such will not yield favourable results. The challenge will be to identify potential and ensure that it is effectively attracted to the right organisation who can develop this talent to gain and sustain competitive advantage. More focus on graduate recruitment and training will be essential if Scotland is to meet the needs of the future. Despite a difficult economy, there are many compelling drivers for IT spending at the moment – yet it is impossible to be everywhere at once. Where and how to invest is the biggest challenge – however, with the right people in place the challenges become easier. 2013 SALARY & EMPLOYMENT INSIGHTS 35
