Are you Getting the Best from Technology in the Workplace?

Did you know, the average person touches their mobile phone more than 2000 times a day? Yikes, and we wonder why workers are not getting those tasks done!

How productive are UK businesses really? While some believe that the digital revolution is in its infancy and others feel that productivity is not yet being measured as it should, there is a camp that feels technology, as we know it, could be a double-edged sword.

That is, our reliance on high-speed digital technology – such as the internet, email, social media and apps – is distracting us from the work we should be doing rather than helping us along. The evidence is there; from the advertising executive who banned phones from work and saw productivity soar to the 20% of employers (shown by a Career Builder survey) who believe their employees are productive only five hours per day and have scapegoated the mobile phone. Come on admit it, you too have been distracted by the latest MSN headlines, what hashtag is trending on Twitter or a scarily targeted pop-up ad for something you really want to buy…

What are the tech problems holding up workers?

  • Time spent trawling insufficient email client searches to follow-up conversations or establish the chain of communication
  • Slow or intermittent internet access, caused by peaks of users and download/upload times or office location
  • Hardware and software upgrades, including malware protection and operating systems, and machine upgrades needed with no suitable time for the changeover yet found
  • The pressure of an instant-response society that pushes workers to leave the task they are doing in order to deal with the latest email request of tweet

Many of us are stuck in a vicious digital circle where we take one step forward and three steps back. We think that by reaching for the mouse and searching Google we are getting things done quicker but, in fact, we often come up against hurdles – many of which are not easily or speedily dealt with. The first step in the right direction is finding IT support that suits your business down to the ground.
