The State Of IT Salaries And WFH Post-COVID-19: Hired Survey

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.

Salary Expectations Mixed

About 49 percent of tech workers expect their salaries will increase by up to 20 percent in the next six months, with the majority expecting that raise to be under 5 percent, the Hired survey found. However, about 44 percent expect their pay to remain about the same over that same time period.

The vast majority of tech employees believe that they should be paid the same whether they are working from home or returning to the office. However, when it comes to salary for work from home workers, tech employees are almost evenly split when asked whether work from home salaries should vary based on the cost of living of where remote workers live, with about 40 percent supporting the variation and about 40 percent preferring to keep location out of the salary equation.
