TMCNet:  Office Workers Feeling the Heat to

[November 15, 2012]

Office Workers Feeling the Heat to "Hurry-Up", TrackVia Survey Shows

DENVER --(Business Wire)--

As America's businesses look to do more with less, workers are feeling the pressure. A whopping 84 percent of non-executive office workers reported feeling pressure "at least occasionally" to do their work faster. This is according to a new survey sponsored by TrackVia, providers of an online platform that gives non-technical business people a radically faster way to build and use their own software to do their work.

The need for speed appears universal amongst surveyed workers. Most rated the speed at which they work as "important," according to the survey. Forty-seven percent of respondents said speed was "very important" when it came to getting their work done. Another 45 percent said it was "somewhat important".

The overall pace of work also appears to be increasing. When compared to twelve months ago, 39 percent of workers reported getting their work done faster. Fifty-five percent reported getting their work done at about the same pace. Only five percent reported getting their work done slower.

"I think it's safe to say that the days of taking your time to do the job right is being replaced by 'do your job right - but do it as fast as possible,'" said Charles Var, vice president of marketing at TrackVia. "This hurry-up workplace is simply a new fact of life for many workers and a big reason we've developed TrackVia to help give workers a solution that allows them to solve their business challenges right now - not tomorrow, next week or next month."

THE BIGGEST IMPACT TO WORKPLACESPEED


When it comes to getting work done faster, simple organization and experience count most. Twenty-six percent of respondents said "keeping organized" was most important for getting their work done fast. The "amount of experience" was selected second most often at 21 percent. Eight percent of respondents cited "having software that is reliable/ dependable" and another seven percent selected "having the right type of software needed for my work".

When it comes to speed and workplace technology, IT can play a big role. However, survey respondents gave mixed reviews of their companies' IT departments or outside IT technical support, with nearly half experiencing speed of response they felt was just "OK" or slow or "very slow".
