The value of stock option grants at the largest U.S. corporations fell significantly in 2005, as companies cut back on the number of options granted and the number of employees receiving them, according to a recent study by Watson Wyatt Worldwide, a leading global consulting firm. As a result, employees can expect decreased income from options in the future. In its survey of public data from 793 companies in the S&P Composite 1500, a stock index that includes companies of various sizes in all sectors of the U.S. economy, Watson Wyatt estimated that the total economic value (using the Black-Scholes formula) of stock options granted to all employees declined 71 percent between 2001 and 2005, from $137 billion to $40 billion. This includes a 32 percent decline from 2004 to 2005. The value of stock option grants per company likewise plunged 33 percent, from $43 million in 2004 to $29 million in 2005, with the bulk of this reduction below the executive level.

Coca-Cola and Fair Employment Practices: It's the Real Thing
One of the outcomes of the settlement of a major race discrimination lawsuit against Coca-Cola was that there would be careful monitoring of its HRM practices. That monitoring effort led to annual reports, made publicly available, regarding the fairness of the company's HRM practices. Now, Coca-Cola has released what it says is the fifth and last of these reports. The report, which is very extensive, reports on nine HR systems. (EASI)

Outsourcing With Confidence
Looking for the next low-priced location for IT operations? Before sending your work halfway around the world, consider these tips
Call it the low-cost labor chase. Fed up with Bangalore's swiftly rising costs, high turnover, and overstretched infrastructure, companies are looking to send IT operations to other cities. Need some inexpensive tech support? Check out Ho Chi Minh City. Want to develop a security system? Take a look at Bucharest. But be warned. The labor may be cheap, but the risks can be high. Companies that shift work to developing countries have to be prepared to deal with language and cultural differences, potential political instability, and possibly even the theft of valuable intellectual property. Here's a guide for going global. (Business Week)

Deep Release:
IT Employment Resumes Climb in November; Tight Supply Hampers Even Greater Growth

After the first pullback in IT Employment in more than a year in October, IT employment resumed its climb in November. According to the National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB), there were 3,674,300 IT workers, an increase of 0.14%, or 5,300, from the previous month. IT employment is up more than 132,000, or almost 4%, since November 2005.

"While near 4% year-over-year growth in IT employment is impressive performance, this statistic alone does not fully convey the strength in demand for IT professionals. Unemployment rates in many IT occupations are among the lowest unemployment rates in the labor force---effectively achieving in many cases 'Full Employment.' I have no doubt that if there were more IT professionals available in high-demand skillsets, overall IT employment would post even stronger gains," said Mark Roberts, CEO of NACCB.

The tight supply of IT professionals in many skillsets is also being reflected in the strong demand for the services of IT staffing and solutions companies. When demand for IT talent is high, it often outstrips the ability of companies to recruit the necessary IT skillsets or staff projects through their internal resources. Companies will turn to IT services firms to either supplement their own staff or outsource entire projects. For complete IT Employment Index please visit:

Technical note: NACCB's IT Employment Index is the first specific measurement of IT employment. This unique measurement of total IT employment is created monthly by studying the ongoing staffing patterns of a dozen IT and computer related occupations in 16 industries and industry sectors employing significant numbers of IT workers including the manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade, financial, information services, business and professional services, and education and health industries. The monthly IT Employment Index is based on U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, which is subject to monthly revisions, and therefore, the Index is revised accordingly. The IT Employment Index is also subject to annual revisions and was most recently benchmarked in May 2006.


NACCB is the only organization solely devoted to representing IT Staffing and Solutions firms and their employees who are creating a new paradigm for the flexible workforce driving the 21st Century economy. These firms provide IT staff augmentation, IT solutions, IT project management, and IT consulting services to America's businesses. NACCB represents over 350 IT services companies serving as the industry voice for public policy. NACCB also supports member companies in efficiently delivering high quality services to their clients. NACCB is headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia.
