It is based on a survey of more than 3,900 full-time professionals worldwide, regarding their collaborative behaviors and activities. The key findings from this report:
- Late start times are costing executives 5 days and 19 hours per year in lost time and productivity.
- Technical difficulties with web conferencing software is the number one cause of delayed meetings.
- More than 50 percent of employees report that the number of meetings they have is increasing.
- 32% of all meetings are virtual, a trend that skews higher for younger workers.
