DEsigned to pinpoint staffing numbers and issues based around the IT sector, Spiceworks found out that IT professionals are working far too much.




Some of the interesting survey data pointed out that full-time employees are working 52 hours weekly on average, discovering that those working in finance, insurance and legal sectors work more than others, clocking 55.4 hours each week. While many employees are working more than the general 40 hour week, other sectors of concern involve education at 47.2, Government at 48.7 and healthcare at 50 hours per week.


Throwing further comparisons into the mix, 57% of IT staff in North America clock more than 40 hours per week, compared to a much lower number of 49% in EMEA.
