Routine Technology Problems Drive Huge Loses In Productivity for Employees and Companies

computer stress

For an employee to be efficient and productive in today’s job environment,  it is important to equip employees with the right technology. Companies that ignore the necessity for IT run the risk of diminished employee productivity. Business runs better when your operating system runs at its best and when your employees don’t get bogged down with IT issues. Tens of thousands of organizations of all sizes around the world rely on IT in order to be productive.

According to an article by Rick Blaisdell on

900 IT professionals and 900 business users from across North America, Europe and Asia were surveyed. The findings show that workers and their companies suffered significant losses in productivity due to IT issues.  86% of employees lose approximately 18 hours a month – about 5 weeks each year – due to IT issues and the subsequent challenges in resolving them. Representing a 10% productivity hit, the average annual cost for each “normally” impacted employee is approximately $3,700.  That number can spike even higher for the most severely impacted employees, who lose as much as 52% of their productive work time. Companies also fail to repurpose those employee hours towards productive work and revenue.

Your employees represent both your organization’s biggest line item expense and your most valuable asset. This means your company’s productivity – and ultimately, its profitability – depend on making sure all of your workers perform up to their full potential.
