According to new research by software company webexpenses, employees who use mobile apps at work are 21 per cent more likely to be happier in their jobs compared to those who don’t.
Webexpenses surveyed 2,000 UK employees who use mobile apps at work.The findings revealed that the advantages of time-saving apps could have huge benefits for the working world, 22 per cent of those surveyed said that it was difficult to keep on top of their work and 49 per cent of all employees said there is not enough time in the day to get everything done. 24 per cent said that mobile apps saved them 1 – 2 hours and 29 per cent said it saved the 30 – 59 minutes saved time.
Michael Richards, Chairman of webexpenses, said: “The findings from our research reveal an interesting disparity when it comes to how individuals utilise mobile apps across both their personal and professional lives. 38 per cent of the mobile app users who responded to our survey said that using apps enhances their personal life and almost half say apps save them time; yet millions of people still aren’t reaping the benefits of using apps in the workplace.
“I’d encourage everyone – employers and employees – to consider how they can make sure they don’t get left behind in the mobile app revolution. Whether it’s for keeping in touch with clients or managing expenses, mobile apps save people valuable time and hassle and that means they can focus their resource on more productive and less frustrating tasks.”
The research also uncovered what the nation’s favourite apps are, with task management apps voted number one, travel apps voted number two, and networking apps such as LinkedIn voted third.
