Joseph F. Kovar

While tech talent is concerned about job security and benefits during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, they made it clear they want some kind of work from home arrangements now and once their employers get past the pandemic, according to a Hired.com survey.

Split On Job Security

The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has tech personnel deeply divided in terms of job security both in their current positions and the prospects for finding a new job.

About 42 percent of respondents to the Hired survey said they are concerned they might be laid off in the next six months, while 58 percent said they are not concerned.

About 39 percent of respondents said they agreed or strongly agreed with the statement, “I want to leave my current job but am afraid to do so because I‘m worried about finding another job.” Another 34 percent either disagreed or strongly disagreed with that statement, while 27 percent neither agreed or disagreed.
