Deliver smarter digital employee experiences

Introducing OpenText Core for Google Workspace

In recent years many organizations have updated their digital tools to support the permanence of remote and hybrid work. Despite many advances, organizations still find managing information across locations and applications to be a top challenge. Implementing new applications without assessing the impact on workflows or the workforce can also create new challenges.

Productivity and collaboration challenges

Gartner® reports that “The application boom has resulted in the average number of applications that an employee must use to do their job reaching 11 in 2022, with 17% of workers needing to use 16 or more[i].” Siloed information requires constant application switching, a significant challenge to both productivity and collaboration.

An increasing number of applications also means critical information can be found in disparate locations, making information management and governance more challenging than ever. According to Gartner, “despite 59% of digital workers reporting they often put in effort to manage content, 29% still struggle to find the information needed to do their job[ii].” With nearly one-third of workers struggling to find critical content, the need for better management is clear. However, current content management solutions often impose rigid structures and workflows that inhibit creativity and innovation. Unless it is seamlessly integrated with other leading applications, a content management solution can contribute to the need to switch between applications, ultimately slowing down business processes.

Employee experience considerations

Digital tools can have a profound impact on employees’ experience of work and desire to remain loyal to an employer. With technology largely or fully replacing in-office interaction for many workers, employers need to consider how their choice of applications impacts the digital employee experience. Integrating content management with a leading productivity suite like Google Workspace, where many organizations are already managing much of their day-to-day collaboration, creates a seamless digital employee experience and empowers workers to access information wherever and however they choose.
