Activating the iWorker

Ricoh sponsored research shows that European businesses can expect to have more 'intelligent workers' (iWorkers) - reliable, highly skilled employees who perform with speed and accuracy, and have access to all the necessary information to meet the needs of their business and clients - by optimising the way they use technology and eliminating information silos.

In its latest sponsored study conducted by Coleman Parkes, Ricoh sets out to determine the challenges to establishing a more intelligent workforce and offers insight into how businesses can benefit from the presence of more iWorkers in their organisation.

The study was conducted during May and June 2013 by Coleman Parkes Research. The online survey consisted of 735 senior business and IT decision makers across 8 vertical sectors, education, legal, utilities/energy, healthcare, public sector, retail, manufacturing and financial services sectors. Participating respondents were from the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, the Nordics (Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark), Switzerland and Russia.
