Tiga survey reveals that majority of studios looking to staff up over the next six months

75 per cent of UK studios to grow workforce

Tiga’s Business Opinion Survey has revealed that 75 per cent of surveyed studios are looking to grow their workforce within the next six months – with over 20 per cent expecting ‘significant’ growth.

According to the report, which surveyed 32 of Tiga’s 150-strong business membership, the UK’s development workforce fell by 2.5 per cent in 2009 as the recession hit developers hard.

However, the results – which Tiga says come ‘overwhelmingly from small- or medium-sized businesses’ – point to a promising upwards trend for the UK development sector. Only nine per cent expected to lay off more staff within the next six months.

Also revealed in the survey is that 78 per cent of UK development businesses expect that their business will improve within the next six months to some degree. No companies surveyed thought their business would get ‘significantly worse’.
