Office productivity is increasingly perceived as important by businesses, and it is a growing problem. Statistics show that the average employee spends 20 minutes per day searching for information – at a cost of EUR 2,300 per year (based on Belgian labor cost figures of 2015). This hidden cost adds up, and many business leaders believe that the 20-minute estimate is a significant understatement.
2 critical challenges related to office productivity
1. Loss of efficiency:
Searching for information can be a complex, time-consuming endeavor when you’re not sure what information is out there, where it is or how to find it – especially for occasional users who aren’t skilled in the use of complex systems. This often leads employees to do things twice, and reinventing the wheel wastes a significant amount of time.
2. Employee well-being:
When employees know information exists but are unable to locate it, they get frustrated and unhappy – the roots of burnout. The strength of a company lies in the health of its people, especially in professional services businesses where human capital is the company’s added value. When employee well-being isn’t up to par, the business suffers across the entire value chain, making burnout a business critical challenge.
