62% of Information Workers Already Work Remotely

Since I am at SLA this week in Philadelphia, I thought I’d post a few about the worker in enterprises:

Forrester recently released this research:

62% of Information Workers Already Work Remotely

More information beyond the link.

“Some of Forrester’s recommendations for building a strategy for a remote, connected workplace include:
• Adopting a mobile-first mindset when planning new content and collaboration tools.
• Streamline devices employees use by letting them use their personal devices for work.
• Consider how the mobile workforce affects facilities and travel budgets.
• Create mobile usecases based on workers’ responsibilities.
• Tap power users for pilot programs.”

This is of course useful to special librarians in particular since the knowledge workers they serve are often remote and accessing our services by virtual communication and intranets.
