3 Productivity Killers Your Employees Want You To Automate
With recent reports fueling concern about automation taking jobs, 60% of knowledge workers believe that automation will lead to higher levels of unemployment. Yet employees are also eager to benefit from the automation of manual, repetitive tasks that take up a significant proportion of their workdays.
This infographic looks at the top three productivity killers — repetitive, manual tasks that take huge amounts of time away from workers, and the benefits that automating these tasks offers. From staying competitive in the marketplace, to making workers more efficient and freeing up time for high-value work, automation has the potential to greatly benefit knowledge workers and businesses.

How Much Time Are You Wasting On Siloed Information?
Businesses today need to move quickly to stay competitive. Yet disconnected information often slows down workers and costs organizations in terms of time and opportunity lost.
Workers spend 36% of their workday looking for and consolidating information. Much of the time, they still can’t find the information needed to do their best work quickly.
Information spread across email, chat, slide decks, docs, and spreadsheets is disconnected and isolated from the work that needs to be done. This often leads to data that’s inaccessible and out of date.
When workers are able to track down the data they need, they often spend a lot of time creating slide decks — and up to 87% of that time is spent on design, not on data.
Our infographic looks at the amount of time your organization wastes due to siloed information, and what you can do about it.
Are Dysfunctional Meetings Impacting Your Bottom Line?
We know time is a limited resource, but when it comes to our daily work lives, we don’t always treat it as such. As work becomes more collaborative, people are spending more and more time in meetings that often don’t accomplish anything.
Not only that, but the amount of resource time spent on meetings — preparing for them, attending them, following up on them — can quickly snowball out of control. No doubt about it, meetings are affecting your bottom line.
So what can you do? This infographic outlines five questions you can ask to assess your meetings, and start to build the habits needed to make sure your meetings are working for you.
