Research Strategy

To identify the attrition rates within technology companies in the United States, the research team selected some well-known players in the industry, specifically, services and hardware providers, managed services companies, and professional services and sales companies. After searching through the public domain, we obtained a list of tech companies and settled on those with revenues of approximately $1 billion and below, except for four companies, namely IBM, ASW Virtus Corporation, and CDW Corporation.

Our research team then searched for data about attrition rates for the identified companies from publicly available sources, including annual reports, labor statistics and databases, and related articles. The requested information was unavailable despite a thorough search of reports, articles, and websites centered on employee attrition rates for the identified industry. We then opted to provide helpful employee metrics such as the number of employees in each firm and how the number has changed in the last 2-3 years. Through this strategy, we obtained relevant information from credible sources, including LinkedIn, Reuters, Datanyze, and ZoomInfo, among other sources.
