ACN launches IT Salary Survey 2013
ACN Salary Survey to deliver insight into regional IT staff issues
IT budgets and staff skills are often at the forefront of the conversation in the Middle East, but the question of salaries - a fine balance between being able to afford the right skilled staff without breaking the budget - is often overlooked.
With frequent disparities in pay between countries and different vertical sectors, high demand skills sets attracting premium salaries and signing bonus, and recruitment practices that draw from a global talent pool, it is often hard to draw a baseline for salaries in the region or to get a good picture of whether or not the region's IT professionals feel they are getting their just rewards.
The ACN IT Salary Survey 2013 aims to bring more transparency and insight into IT salaries in the region, along with related issues such as skills and certification, job satisfaction and prospects.
The survey will cover the GCC, and wider Middle East, and will sample all levels of IT professionals from across the public and private sector.
In order to give the most comprehensive picture of IT salaries in the region, Arabian Computer News needs your help, by asking you to complete our short survey.
The survey is completely anonymous, with no personal data required.
ACN would also welcome any feedback on the survey, or your thoughts on the state of IT salaries and employment in the region.
The results of the survey will be revealed in the October issue of ACN, along with analysis and comment from industry professionals.
