The information and communication technologies (ICT) impact on labor intensity is one of the actual, but understudied interdisciplinary issues of modern science and practice. Observations and analysis of labor processes in context of the ICT use point out the increase in labor intensity. The purpose of the research is to identify key sources of workers’ labor intensity growth under the ICT development, regardless of the field of professional activity. The article highlights such sources as increase in work strenuousness, growth of number of labor functions and operations, lengthening working day, and also change in work and rest regime. A special focus is on the problem of «leisure time colonization». An ∩-shaped correlation between labor intensity and productivity is presented. The general conclusion that unlimited growth of labor intensity is inconsistent with the sustainable development and effective development of human capital is made.
