It is no secret that IT staffs are not usually large teams. In a recent report from Spiceworks, it was found that the average size of an IT staff was 4.2 people. Broken down by company size, the numbers show that where there are more than 500 employees, the average size was 11.9 workers. Companies that employ 250 to 499 people had, on average, 4.8 people providing IT support, while those under 250 had fewer than three. Yet while IT expenditures are always increasing, hiring is not. In fact, the same report shows that a majority of companies are keeping their IT staff at the same levels or reducing them.
