The presentation looks at the ways that employees are able to connect to information and people when they are not at work -- when they are using consumer technologies – then compares that to the kinds of outdated, disconnected and overly regulated tools they have to contend with at work. Typically, the result is a disconnected information environment in which employees are unable to find either the data or the people they most need to connect with. That can have a negative impact on productivity and engagement. Since the number one way that employees solve problems at work remains talking to a person with the necessary expertise it’s critical that the technology environment evolve to support that need and to do it more effectively

    25% of employee time spent searching for people or information(2)
    10% of salaries are spent on searches for information that is never found(3)
