There is no better time to investigate how digital workplaces, intranets and other related technologies can help raise organisational productivity. According to Gallup, disengaged employees are costly. For example, in the US between $450 billion and $550 billion is lost due to low worker productivity each year. McKinsey also state that intrinsically motivated staff perform 16 percent better than workers who are burnt out.
If we can provide staff with access to the right tools, at the right time, then we can go some way to raise their overall effectiveness. A worthwhile challenge if ever there was one.
Why does productivity matter?
Productivity is all about raising the output or the speed in which new products or services are created or delivered. How do you get more value from your effort, using the the same or less input? Access to technology, better tools, more efficient processes, can help here a lot. Yet frustratingly, technology is not the whole answer.
There can be no doubt that digital tools, services and networks have become an integral component to growth. Yet technology is necessary yet not a determinate to raised productivity. When invested in the wrong way (or for the wrong reasons), the value of brilliant tools like enterprise social collaboration software can quickly evaporate
Today, however, due to a renewed emphasis on growth and productivity, there is a window of opportunity to once more look at these tools afresh.
The compelling question for us to answer is what role can digital workplace technologies, collaboration spaces and a growing multitude of apps play in helping businesses raise their productivity game?
With this in mind, our unique survey will set out to investigate the following questions:
- Which technologies are least and most popular?
- What types of work do these technologies support best?
- What barriers need to be overcome to unlock their productive potential?
The survey will take no more than 5 minutes to complete. No names, personal details or company information will be collected or used in its analysis and report.
What do you get in return?
Once we reach our survey quota, any respondents who have entered their email address will be entered into a draw to win a Sonos Play:1.
The report will be FREE to all survey participants who include an email address when published in early 2017. It will provide you with analysis with commentary from leading experts, concluding with a set of actionable recommendations.
