How we get work done has changed dramatically over the last 10 years. At that point, almost 50% of people were still tied to their desks to complete work effectively, and offices were topped with a desktop computer, printers, and even fax machines. Now you’re hard pressed to find a fax machine, and maybe even a printer in your office. This is because we rely on cloud app technology that allows us to conduct business in the cloud. In fact, 56% of people use financial or bookkeeping cloud apps for work and more than half use productivity apps like project management or file sharing.
The rise of cloud apps has transformed the concept of an office; work is no longer defined by four walls and a desk with your nameplate. Nearly 80% of people worked remotely in the last six months, and almost all (96%) businesses see mobility as important for employees to be productive and efficient in today’s workplace.
We recently surveyed 1,000 full-time employees across the United States to define how they used to work and how they work now, and compiled results in an infographic. Check out the full infographic below and stay tuned for more tips on how to keep up with new technology and tools to keep employees productive from anywhere.
