Companies Continue to Bring Back Tech Jobs to U.S.

Photo of a tech worker handling a circuit board.Job seekers with information technology (IT) experience on their resume will be happy to hear that many U.S. companies are bringing a large majority of outsourced high-tech jobs back to American soil.

Atul Vashistha, chairman of the outsourcing advisory firm Neo Group, told The Wall Street Journal that many of his clients have found that sending work overseas not only has hidden costs, but that the practice can lead to loss of expertise within a business.

"Companies are realizing now that they might have outsourced jobs that they never should have," Vashistha told the news agency. "When you have roles that require deep domain knowledge, you end up having challenges."

Earlier this year, President Barack Obama introduced an anti-outsourcing bill that would punish U.S. companies that send their work out of the country.

Companies that have begun to move IT and other high-tech jobs back to the U.S include Ascension Health, which expects to complete the process by 2015.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities for computer and information systems managers are expected to increase by 18% through the end of the decade.
