Findings reinforce the need for new communications and collaboration technologies to enable the new way to work
MUNICH and RESTON, Va., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unify today released Volume 2 of the industry leading New Way to Work (#NW2W) Index, showing the impact technology has on team success. The research conducted for the #NW2W Index Volume 2 ran between March and April 2014, surveying 137 business executives and team members from around the world to get a real world view of the collaboration capabilities offered and used by teams and their correlation to team performance.
The latest edition of the #NW2W Index is part of an ongoing research series announced by Unify chief executive officer Dean Douglas in March, where he detailed the imperative for business leaders to prioritize creating new strategies for communications and collaboration systems and IT infrastructure.
Among the findings in the #NW2W Index Volume 2, the survey showed that the most successful teams have and use communication and collaboration technology two to four times more than teams that enjoy marginal or no success.
"It's imperative that we equip teams for the transformation that is happening in today's virtual business environment, using real-time communication and collaboration technologies to enable the new way to work," said Bill Hurley, chief marketing officer of Unify. "This survey validates how the ease of connecting and the ability to collaborate spontaneously correlate with team success. This is more than just a trend driven by Millennials-the trend is critical to engaging people with ideas and sustaining organizational performance when teams are distributed across multiple locations."
Data from the #NW2W Index Volume 2 provide insights on how technology use impacts team success. Below are some of the capabilities studied.
Unify has created a new resource hub filled with content, data and best practices that leaders can access as they build their New Way to Work strategy. For additional information about the Index findings and to download a copy of the current Unify #NW2W Index, please visit www.unify.com/NW2W.
