Recent figures from a Spiceworks survey show that full-time IT staff work longer hours than the standard 40-hour American work week, with respondents saying they work around 52 hours per week on average.
With a high workload combined with not enough IT staff being reported as one of the key issues, IT managers need to look at solutions to make IT tasks more efficient and effective.
According to The Guardian, working long hours not only increases stress, decreases job satisfaction, and causes general unhappiness, but also leads to a higher turnover of staff and increased risk for organisations as more IT-related mistakes are likely to be made. Additionally, IT staff may struggle to find the time to look at important forward-looking solutions if they are constantly fire fighting.
