Report: 'Mobile-first' working environments drive business performance improvements

A new global study by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) said it has established a measurable link between 'more mobile-first' working environments and an increase in employee engagement. The report, Mobility, Performance and Engagement, which was sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise-owned Aruba, said this indicated that CIOs can drive increased business performance through well developed and executed mobile strategies. The study showed that companies rated by employees as 'pioneers' in how they support mobile technology, saw a rise in productivity (16 per cent), creativity (18 per cent), satisfaction (23 per cent), and loyalty (21 per cent) when compared to organisations that were poorly rated at supporting mobile technology.
