Fall 2022

Welcome!

Welcome to the fall edition of PSCI's client newsletter, the IT Industry Rundown!
 
As inflation remains elevated, and global markets tumble, fears of a recession loom.
 
The good news, however, is that even in a troubling economy there's still a need for IT.

Still, IT leaders must question how to effectively allocate resources in order to retain top talent and support mission-critical projects.

That's why the articles and blog posts shared in this newsletter all deal with how to thrive during uncertain economic times.

The newsletter leads off, however, with our latest blog post that details a troubling new trend, "Quiet Quitting.". 

I hope you find these articles helpful as you navigate these rocky waters. As always, please remember to connect with PSCI on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook for the latest IT industry news and information.
