Employees waste four weeks a year due to slow and outdated tech, finds report


"Slow and outdated IT costs businesses four whole working weeks per employee per year, to the tune of £2,100 for every person, a new report from Sharp has found.

The biggest drain contributing to this figure is searching for files on servers, which accounts for an average of 23 minutes per day and can be attributed to slow search functions.

The total waste is apparently around 40 minutes every day for each staff member, which means 167 hours per month are lost to bad technology.

Of the 1,000 UK office workers Sharp asked, 80% said their office was ‘out-of-date when it comes to technology’.

On top of this, 64% believed that ‘if their office had better technology...they would be more productive’, while 195 said an office-wide upgrade in tech would stop them looking for a new job elsewhere.”
