In this Softchoice research study, we explored trends in employee productivity and collaboration, including the use of office automation tools, remote work flexibility, and how well organizations equip their people with the technology they need to be productive. Softchoice surveyed 1,000 full-time North American office workers who use a computer or mobile device for the majority of their work day.
Study highlights include:
85% of North American office workers expect their employers to provide technology that allows them to work from wherever they choose.
74% of employees saying they would quit their jobs to work for an organization that would allow them to work remotely more often, even if their salary stayed the same.
83% of employees use technology to collaborate in real time with people in different locations, however, 78% of them say they experience frequent technical difficulties that impact the collaborative experience.
69% of employees say office automation tools have positively impacted their productivity, but nearly one in four workers feel their job is in danger of being replaced entirely by technology within five years.
Compared to Baby Boomers, millennials are twice as likely to feel more productive and better-equipped working at home than at the office.
