Report shows a measurable link between mobile and better business performance
"'Mobile first' has become a popular mantra among business leaders, but it's not always easy to prove the impact of mobile strategies. Now a new study has established a measurable link between 'mobile first' working environments and increase in employee engagement, proving that CIOs can drive increased business performance through well developed and executed mobile strategies.
The study, conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit in conjunction with Aruba, found that mobile working is getting higher performance from employees: those who rate their company as ‘pioneers’ (forward thinking) in their use of mobile technology score consistently higher for key performance metrics.
According to a self-evaluation they are 16% more productive, 18% more creative, 23% more satisfied in their job and 21% more loyal to their employer.
And it's not just about the devices themselves, but the working models that mobile can offer. The biggest benefit to worker productivity is the ability to work flexibly, with half of all workers (49%) saying it makes them more productive.”
