Dell and Intel unveiled findings from its second Global Evolving Workforce Study for India which identifies and explores current and future trends pertaining to the workplace and workforce and the role that technology has played in their evolution.
Over 502 full-time Indian professionals working a minimum of 35 hours per week aged 18 or older, were surveyed from industries including – Financial Services, Manufacturing, Retail, Media & Entertainment, Private Healthcare, Private Education, Government, Public Healthcare and Public Education.
“As one of the world’s emerging economies, India has always presented unique opportunities and challenges; even when it comes to its massive and evolving workforce. The study shares interesting findings, where Indian employees of both private and public sectors, display a need for mobility, connectivity and secure technology. From 71% who consider laptops, to 41% in favour of BYOD and 29% who are interested in 2-in-1s; there is an apparent shift in how work is getting done as technology becomes increasingly embedded in the core of the workplace today”, shared Indrajit Belgundi, General Manager – End User Computing Dell India.
According to Sudharsan R., Commercial Marketing Head, Dell India, “The survey’s aim is to explore the needs, wants and experiences of the evolving workforce globally and in India. This program is a part of our overarching strategy that is concentrated on listening to our customers. With this we intend to identify trends and issues of how technology is adding to productivity and efficiency of employees. From what the survey reveals, India’s dynamic work environments need the most secure and manageable technology, to support an employee in carrying out diverse tasks.”
With the workplace changing, job responsibilities are being fulfilled in locations other than the office – be it home, client locations, even in public spaces like coffee shops and public transportation, and thus mobility has become a priority. Amid the flux, mobile technologies and alternative interfaces are playing an increasing role – laptops, tablets, mobile phones, 2-in-1s, thin clients and desktop virtualization introduce unprecedented versatility into the IT toolkit.
