Tech Wages Drop After All-Time Highs in 2007

After hitting all-time highs in 2007, tech wages drop in the first quarter of 2008. So says the Q1 Yoh Index of Technology Wages, which we released just yesterday. First quarter wages for tech professionals dropped both year-over-year, and in comparison to those recorded in the final months of 2007, doing little, I’m sure, to boost your confidence in the economy.

And while this report does seem to paint a bleak picture, all hope is not lost. We’re still seeing pockets of strength in the tech sector, especially in SAP, Oracle, security and product development, and software and hardware engineering. Plus, the wage drop in March was not as severe as in earlier months, so hopefully that’s an indication that wages are once again on the rise.

Big Day for Yoh and SAP

Greetings from sunny Orlando, host city of SAPPHIRE, SAP®’s annual international customer event! It’s a fitting location from which to be writing this post since the purpose of today’s post is to share with you some exciting news related to our SAP partnership…

So here it is. This morning we officially announced that Yoh and SAP are developing the next generation of the Yoh Exchange. (For those of you unfamiliar with the Yoh Exchange, it’s Yoh’s recruiting and HR Management portal that’s designed to help companies cut costs and improve their hiring process.) The new version will incorporate web-based talent planning, administration, policy and profile management and on-site customer support with the end goal of speeding time-to-fill, minimizing technology requirements and human resources costs, and enhancing talent quality.

We’ve signed an agreement with SAP to jointly market the Yoh Exchange as the leading choice for customers to integrate solutions for supply chain and talent management, and are really excited about this opportunity to expand our relationship with the company.

Be sure to check back later for more updates from SAPPHIRE.
