The biggest obstacle to workplace productivity is inefficient technology that isn’t able to cope with the demands of hybrid working. Discover the solution, with Apogee.

Workplace Productivity

Now that hybrid working has become so widespread, issues with employee productivity have become increasingly common – with recent research identifying a lack of adequate collaborative tech as a significant obstacle when working remotely.

In fact, poor hybrid communication is causing four-in-ten employees to consider leaving their current position – with feelings of frustration, isolation, and inability to perform their job properly affecting over a quarter of our sample.

Improving workplace efficiency is made easier with the services included in Digital Workplace Solutions – and not just for hybrid teams, but for entirely office-based setups as well.

What's the Problem?

So what are generally agreed to be the common hindrances to workplace productivity?

While our research sample was near-unanimous in agreement that employees are less productive when working remotely (94%), the root cause of the problem is where stances differ between employees and upper management – as are whether it is even a priority at all.

For example, over a third of employees (35%) agree that unreliable collaboration technology is the main obstacle to their productivity - while CIOs are more likely to blame home distractions (27%) for a lack of employee efficiency. However, over three quarters (77%) of CIOs and HR Directors say that employee expectations are incompatible with the business; with the implication being that there is a lack of awareness for the cost-efficiencies that Digital Workplace Solutions create for businesses.
