Why Read This Report

Broadband connections, mobile devices, and collaboration tools make employees productive from any location. Your employees know this already: Forrester's survey of more than 5,000 information workers in five countries reveals that half of the information workforce works online from home, and one in five does on the go. They also live online using the Internet for personal purposes at work (especially your senior staff). But surprise! Employees give that time back by working online the same number of hours at home, where Facebook and YouTube and email and web meetings blend into a happy work/life balance. As a content and collaboration (C&C) professional, your conclusion should be that it's time to champion the cause of your company's work anywhere future and carry the technology banner to achieve it.
