Our Cisco WebEx colleagues in China engaged a study with Bite Communications aimed at learning more about China’s mobile workforce. “The Science of Company Productivity Survey” was launched on one of China’s leading portals for two weeks in June.
Among the findings, they learned in China, collaboration technologies can play an integral role in improving organizational effectiveness while helping employees achieve a more flexible, balanced and efficient work life. Given a range of choices, respondents chose web meetings as their preferred method of working with others.
A Quick Look at the Findings
In China, one day of the work week doesn’t seem to be any more crazy than the other. When asked when people feel most overloaded at work, the answer spanned the week!
Participants believe they are fairly efficient at work, but they believe there are tools and changes that could be made to improve their effectiveness.
With PCs and mobile phones presented as the preferred tools for collaboration, it was interesting to see that web meetings led the pack as the best way to collaborate with others over face-to-face meetings, IM, phone calls and email.
