In the Salt Lake City market, a halfway competent IT guy will cost you around $60,000/yr plus benefits. Total cost to your organization will be around $75,000/yr fully loaded. For most business owners that can be a pretty steep price tag. Especially if you don’t have enough needs to keep him busy full time.
