Businesses 'benefit from better broadband'
New research from Chelsea Apps Factory has highlighted the significant impact on employee productivity of poor technology in the workplace.

Based on a poll of 1,000 UK workers, the results showed the nation's businesses could be losing a combined 7.5 million working days a year - 11 full days per person - through a lack of productivity as a result of technology that does not operate as efficiently as it could.

The most common problems cited by respondents were outdated software (17 per cent), computers regularly crashing (24 per cent) and painfully slow internet connections (28 per cent).

As a result, a surprisingly high percentage - almost half (47 per cent) - stated the technological situation at their company is now so bad they would consider moving jobs because of it.

Mike Anderson, Chief Executive Officer at Chelsea Apps Factory, said: "It's clear the 'techspectations' of the modern employee far outweigh what companies can deliver - and employees are literally taking matters into their own hands."
