CBRE: Tech Hiring Poised for Strong Growth After Weathering 2020

North American tech-talent employment weathered the pandemic better than most other professions, managing 0.8% growth while non-tech employment declined by 5.5%, CBRE says in its annual Scoring Tech Talent report.

This resilience will set the stage for strong tech job growth amid the economic recovery across established tech capitals like the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle and Toronto and emerging hubs including Dayton, Huntsville and Colorado Springs. 

“Many factors already are in place to fuel strong tech-talent job growth this year and beyond coming out of the pandemic,” said Todd Husak, managing director of CBRE’s Tech & Media Practice Group. “Big tech markets will gain from their established pipelines of tech graduates and many workers’ return to city centers. Smaller markets will reap benefits from their cost advantages in labor and real estate as well as the tech industry’s embrace of remote work for certain employees.”
