Research from Workfront and Harris Poll demonstrates changing trends in the culture of enterprise companies. Findings include:
- 52% of office workers log into work outside of business hours every day.
- 81% rate themselves highest by far in productivity compared to their co-workers, managers, leaders, and direct reports.
- Millennials are rated as most creative and tech-savvy, yet least cooperative and least likely to take responsibility.
“As enterprises grow, so do the demands on their employees in terms of productivity and communication,” reads the Workfront website, which published the report. “Too often, this pushes existing tools, processes, and schedules to the breaking point. Gaining a vantage point into what is actually happening on enterprise teams becomes nearly impossible. Without this visibility, conflict and misperceptions flourish, team workloads become unbalanced, and employees work increasingly longer hours.”
The report claims that enterprise company office workers consider themselves productive, but they also work regularly beyond standard business hours. You’ll also find snapshots of their perceptions of each other and the things that they believe keep them from being more productive.
The survey was conducted online from July 6-24, 2015 among 617 U.S. adults aged 18 years and older, employed full-time or part-time, who work at a company with 500 or more employees and who work on a computer and collaborate with other people. Survey participants are referred to as “office workers.”
