Stress and absenteeism among office staff defeating drive towards efficiency
New technology in the office is not producing the expected gains in producitivity, according to a survey.
Figures reveal the producitivity of the average office worker is rising by kust 1% per year, despite millions spent on new technology.
According to the research, carried out by Officiency, the office producitivity advisors, some of the problems still facing office managers are stress related absenteeism, staff malpractice and lost time, inadequate processes, tiring working conditions and ill-defined managment responsibility.
Officiency claims the key to improvements is measuring the outputs of an office and have begun developing tools to achieve that aim.
