£30b Loss To The Economy
The report by Smarter Working Britain which was the result of a joint study carried out by the Centre for Economic and Business Research (CEBR) and )02 has discovered that the public sector and some of the Country’s biggest businesses lose out on £30b of economic growth due to lack of connectivity.
These organisations state that their staff are unable to access instant messaging facilities, apps and other services which are available or are required to enable them to work productively outside of the office environment and effectively make better use of an employee’s time and productivity by being able to access information during meetings and whilst working from home or out and about on business. The lack of such connectivity increases the travelling time of such employees because they have to attend the office when it would be more beneficial to work away from the office. The study argued that just saving 121 employees travelling time equates to £127 hours per year. Do you or an employee of yours have to go into the office because you are unable to access certain data at home or you have to download it prior to a meeting because you know that there will be insufficient connectivity at the meeting or you are at a meeting and try to download some important data and are unable to do so? How much does this cost you in time and travelling costs, let alone frustration?
