Research University of Twente loss in productivity workers through ICT

On average a Dutch worker loses 7.6% of the time working on a PC because of poor functioning ICT and lack of digital skills. This problem seems to be of no concern to employees or executives. The provision of targeted training, strengthening the role of the helpdesk and supporting the informal support networks are opportunities to reduce this problem.

To give an idea. For a company with 15 employees, this means that they lose (on average) 9,1 hours a day to ICT issues. Every day!

The computer today, is an integral part of the work for the vast majority of Dutch employees. The importance of computers and the wider ICT is more far-reaching than just the impact on the way we organize our day. ICT makes work much easier, some of the work even unnecessary, let companies compete, and ensures transparency and innovation of products, services and processes. Most indicative of this interest is perhaps the fact that other research has shown that ICT is the engine behind the productivity gains that the Dutch economy over the past decades has achieved.
