Social Media Increases Office Productivity, But Management Still Resistant, Says Study [INFOGRAPHIC]

46 percent of workers say that their productivity has greatly or somewhat increased because of social media use in the office, and more than one-third (37 percent) say that they could do their job better if their organisation’s management was more on-board in the use of social tools in the workplace.

Social media means business: big business. So why are so many big businesses still seeing it as the enemy? Ipsos and Microsoft surveyed almost ten thousand information workers across 32 countries and discovered that 34 percent of respondents believed that their management underestimates the benefit of social media in the workplace, even though two in five employees believe social tools encourage more collaboration and 31 percent say that they would be willing to spend their own money on a tool if it made them more efficient at their job.

Employee Use Of Social Media Is On The Rise (And Twitter Leads The Way) [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that Twitter is the most-used social networking site by office employees, ahead of Facebook and LinkedIn?

Initially frowned upon – if not outright banned – the use of social media in the office is very much on the rise, as employers start to understand the benefits of these tools and how they can be best leveraged for office productivity. While less than half (43 percent) of firms have a completely open policy towards social networking, fewer than one in three (< 30 percent) block these channels altogether, and the number of organisations restricting access to these platforms is dropping by around 10 percent each year.

The State Of Social Media At Work [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that British people are more social at work than their American counterparts?

It’s true – 30 percent of Britons label their company as a social enterprise, compared to just 19 percent of Americans. Moreover, 28 percent of British workers say their firm uses social sites to engage with customers, compared to 21 percent of Americans, and more than twice as many UK companies are using four or more social media tools than those across the pond.

Social media is big business, but not all businesses are happy to come on board. While almost everyone wants more investment in social, a new study has shown that your boss is twice as likely to be using social media than you are – less than one third of employees are allowed to use platforms such as Twitter and Facebook in the office.

44% Of Employees Think That Twitter, Facebook Negatively Impact The Workplace [STUDY]

Almost half of UK employees (44 percent) believe that social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook negatively impact office productivity, says a new study.

Furthermore, 73 percent stated that sharing opinions about work on these channels is inappropriate, and over half of those surveyed (55 percent) feel that mixing personal and professional connections could cause problems in the workplace.

Do Employers “Like” Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that 42 percent of employers say no to any use of social media in the workplace?

When you consider that two out of every five young workers rate access to social media at work above receiving a higher salary, this presents an obvious disconnect. And for many employers, an outright ban is easier to manage than educating themselves on the benefits of using these tools in the office – only a little more than half (53 percent) have any kind of formal social media policy in place.
