Gartner Survey Finds 58% of Organizations Employ Borderless Technology Talent

Gartner analysts presented the survey findings during Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™, which is taking place here through today. The survey was conducted among 288 C-level executives and their direct reports during the second quarter of 2022 to understand their willingness to pursue a borderless tech workforce, their plans and adoption of a borderless workforce.

“Today in the professional world, location is fluid, the market is global, and the talent competition is agnostic as we are all competing under the same flag, technology,” said Vogel. “Consequently, countries are losing talent to other countries, the public sector is losing talent to the private sector, and all the verticals are in the same situation. There are no more competition boundaries, and business and IT leaders hire borderless staff where they have the biggest competitive advantage – what we call the “borderless zone,” added Vogel.

The survey found that among organizations that have borderless talent, 19% of their IT workforce is borderless.

“Hiring borderless staff requires business and IT leaders to make significant adjustments to their operational model, including revising their management techniques, infrastructure and technology, cybersecurity and data protection, and pay equity,” said Vogel

U.K. Has Equal Appeal for North America and Europe

Although India is the most selected country for recruiting borderless technology labor for European and North American companies, the U.K. ranks in fourth place with almost equal appeal from Europe (28%) and North America (26%) (see Figure 1). The survey also found that Europe has a significant concentration of hiring inside its borders since Europe has favorable labor laws for hiring borderless staff.
