It’s no secret, organizations are facing challenges adapting to the rapidly evolving future of work. This accelerated shift has shed light on the importance of visibility into how employees work, which also opens up an opportunity for MSPs to help their clients implement new technologies to gain the visibility they need.
Business leaders are starting to realize that it’s not enough to measure how many hours are spent working; instead, it’s more important to understand how to help people focus and improve their own productivity. Fortunately, advancements in workforce analytics software are enabling leaders to do exactly that—and more. By collecting, analyzing, and understanding the right productivity analytics, managers can make data-driven decisions to help employees work wiser.
The employee engagement connection
Over the last decade, numerous studies have shown that there is a clear connection between employee engagement and productivity. When employees are disengaged, they are significantly less productive. According to research from Gallup, disengaged employees are at least 18% less productive and make their organizations 15% less profitable as a result. On the contrary, businesses with high levels of employee engagement report a 22% higher productivity level, and higher profits as a result.
