A More Balanced IT Work Environment

Click through for key findings from a survey conducted by TEKsystems on IT staffing stress, work-life balance and overall satisfaction.

According to a new report from TEKsystems, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, the tech industry has seen a vast improvement in the IT working environment over the past year. Stress levels are down significantly from the last few years, and IT staff appear to be on top of their workloads and finally able to take some well deserved, and uninterrupted, downtime. Additionally, IT staff reported a renewed pride in their work and growing responsibility. Overall, the survey results point to a vast positive change in the stability of IT staffing environments as compared to a year ago.

"This year certainly paints a much rosier picture than last year — we've seen a significant drop in stress and a positive swing in pride and satisfaction," said TEKsystems Research Manager Jason Hayman. "While it's encouraging, organizations still need to ensure that their talent management and workforce strategies are aligned to avoid overworked staff, unrealistic workloads or internal discord if they want to continue this positive momentum."

The findings represent the views of over 1,000 IT professionals. Key highlights are featured in this slideshow.
