Three-quarters of employees think collaboration is essential to the daily running of their business
"Over three-quarters (77%) of UK employees say that collaboration technology is vital in the way they work with colleagues and clients on a daily basis. But many workers still face significant tech challenges, whether working in the office or remotely. Almost four in every five (79%) of Brits experience technology frustrations at work – showing that there is far more that companies can be doing to empower their teams to work productively. The findings are revealed in Unify’s Humanising the Enterprise study, which surveyed more than 1,500 UK-based knowledge workers between the ages of 16-55+.
UK companies, while demanding high levels of performance from their workforce, are struggling to deliver a seamless technology experience. The surveyed employees reveal regular frustration at the loss of the ability to communicate and collaborate through key technologies. A majority (58%) identify the loss of access to social media as the biggest inhibitor to collaboration. This is followed by video conferencing (33%) and the capability to receive/send/write emails when needed (12%).”
