South Florida’s IT sector continues to battle high turnover rates, survey shows


A majority of South Florida’s information technology workers see their industry as stagnant and would consider ditching their jobs for a position out of state, an annual survey of more than 1,000 local IT professionals reveals.

Conducted by Fort Lauderdale-based IT staffing firm Protech, the 13th annual Tech Talent Workforce survey gathered insights from 1,312 rank-and-file members of tri-county IT companies. The staffing organization also released its 15th annual Tech Leadership Survey, which received responses from 137 IT directors and CIO-level IT executives across the region.
