Andy Doyle, account management and sales manager at BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, told the recent 360°IT event in London that employers understand the need to have the right people in place to support their business goals.
"At the moment, forward-thinking organisations are finding themselves investing in people and ensuring that their human capital is protected as an investment," he explained.
Mr Doyle also said that companies should not overlook their investment in technology workers such as those in IT sales and claimed they are ultimately more important than hardware and software assets.
Recent research carried out by senior IT executive's magazine CI found that 35 per cent of companies intend to increase their spending on full-time technology workers in the next 12 months.
The poll also showed that only 16 per cent of IT leaders are planning on cutting their budgets.
