5 Shocking Revelations From the UK Workplace

  1. What’s really happening in UK companies? 5 Shocking Revelations From Workfront’s 2016 Uk State of Enterprise Work Report
  2. Introduction Office workers and the organisations they work in are constantly striving to be more productive, to rise to the increasing intensity of competition in their markets. But what keeps them from being as productive, effective, and competitive as they aspire to be? To answer this question, Workfront, the leading provider of enterprise work management solutions, surveyed 2,051 UK officer workers. The results of the survey might surprise you…
  3. Finding #1: UK officer workers think of themselves as productive
  4. 92% of officer workers feel productive at their jobs
  5. 96% rate themselves as “very or quite productive” 85% say the same about their co-workers 65% say the same about their manager 60% say the same about company leadership
  6. Finding #2: This productivity comes at a cost
  7. The “lunch hour” is no more! Nearly half of office workers spend 30 minutes or less on lunch 52% delay going to the bathroom to meet a deadline
  8. 77% log into work/work email outside of normal business hours during the week 47% do this every day 62% log into work/work email at weekends
  9. In other words, to be more productive, office workers must “create” extra time from lunch, bathroom breaks, mornings, evenings, and weekends. What’s driving this?
  10. Finding #3: Office workers aren’t getting their real work done during standard work hours
  11. When asked why they log into work outside of standard business hours… 34% said, “To get ahead of work” 31% said, “Too much work to do”
  12. Which raises the question: what is keeping office workers from completing their real work within standard business hours?
  13. Finding #4: Phone calls, meetings, and email are pushing out real work
  14. 4 in 10 say phone calls, meetings, and email get in the way of work
  15. After email, meetings, and other administrative tasks, half of office workers say they have 40% or less of their time left for their primary job duties
  16. In other words, much of our efforts at workplace communication are keeping workers from doing the work they were hired to do.
  17. Finding #5: Poor work communication is causing inter-departmental conflict
  18. When asked what the most common source of inter-departmental conflict was… 27% said lack of understanding about timing or urgency of tasks 37% said conflicting priorities 46% said lack of communication/miscommunication
  19. Finding #6: That conflict is killing more than just productivity
  20. When asked what the most common consequence of this conflict was… 1 in 3 said lost productivity 27% said missed deadlines 41% said low morale/high turnover
