IT Staffing Formula

By ebsackowitz ·
Tags: Off Topic
What is a realistic ratio of IT personnel to company Staff? We are in the TV and Radio business and currently we have about 3 IT people to 400 personnel and run a 24x7 mission critical operation. Are there published articles anyone has come across that would support the argument of increasing IT resources?

Totally agree with jhesson's post. There isn't a neat formula or pat answer.

Make a list of the things you do and a list of the things you think are important to do but cannot for lack or resources. If your manager can understand this and stillwants more (or better), THEN you are able to have a conversation about the cost of additional services or what things they are willing to do without.

A quicky benchmark against your peers is always a useful bit of evidence and adds credibility toanything you say. Your competitor/peers are probably in the same boat and may be ecstatic to participate.
