Employee Recruitment and Retention

An overwhelming majority (77 percent) of those surveyed for the CA Technologies report said that DevOps is having a positive impact on employee recruitment and retention. With competition for talent — particularly developer talent — remaining high, any advantage in this area can be significant for the business.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), it cost an average of $4,129 to hire someone in 2016, and it took an average of 42 days to fill an open position. CompTIA reports that demand for IT professionals remains high with 43,500 job postings for "software developers, application" in January of this year. If organizations can reduce turnover or decrease the amount of time it takes to hire new employees, they can reduce costs and improve their productivity.
