Companies are rethinking the tools they use to keep employees engaged and loyal – especially at a time when flexibility and choice are paramount to an increasingly mobile workforce. A newly released survey from Jive Software, Inc. finds that as today’s workforce continues to evolve and new Future of Work trends emerge, seven out of ten (72 percent) employees want to use more technology in the workplace that enables them to work from anywhere. Furthermore, the same percentage state that the freedom to try tools make them more effective in their job, with 43 percent finding it a powerful loyalty driver. (PRNewsFoto/Jive Software) Employers are quickly catching on to Future of Work trends and the impact that technology can have for employee retention, especially in today’s highly competitive market. Eighty-four percent of employers want to implement modern technology tools that enable workplace flexibility as a way to attract and retain top talent. However, there is room for improvement, as 72 percent of respondents believe their company could do better to provide technology that enables more flexibility and 64 percent believe it is “very important” to have the flexibility to work from anywhere. More survey results include: Remote Attraction: Flexible work environments and access to technologies that support productive remote work schedules are increasingly a top consideration in job decisions. 81 percent of employees feel that the freedom to try new tools impacts their job satisfaction.

However, despite improvement in many areas, one in three companies still lacks policies for its information security, data encryption and data classification, according to The Battle Continues – Working to Bridge the Data Security Chasm: Assessing the Results of Protiviti 2015 IT Security and Privacy Survey from global consulting firm Protiviti. “It’s no stretch to state that the spectrum and sophistication of cyberattacks and the diversification of their origin will continue to increase,” said Cal Slemp, a Protiviti managing director with the firm’s global cybersecurity practice. “Companies appear intent on addressing data security issues, but are these intentions translating into effective policies and actions to secure organizations’ most valuable data? The results are mixed, at best, according to our 2015 survey. It’s increasingly important for organizations to avoid complacency and consistently enhance their infrastructure, data frameworks and response plans to protect, mitigate and manage potential breaches.” The IT security and privacy survey, which gathered insights from 708 Chief Information Officers, Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Technology Officers, IT vice presidents and directors and other IT management professionals, assesses security and privacy policies, data governance, data retention and storage, data destruction policies, and third-party vendors and access, among other topics that organizations need to manage and improve. Protiviti’s report also includes recommended actions for IT leaders as well as trends to watch.

Only 28 percent of organizations indicated that there is currently a high level of engagement by the board (compared to 30 percent in the 2014 survey).
