They are the leading cause of employee disengagement.

The best way to prepare for the changing landscape of your workforce is with state-of-the-art talent management and succession planning tools. Chances are, you have the talent within your company you’ll need going forward—you just have to discover it, nurture it and find the best way to use this talent.

Instead, prepare now for the economic recovery so employees know they will have a bright future should they choose to stay.

This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
