12 Tips to Free up R&D Professionals' Time
Driven by the need to respond to global hyper-competition and the increasing speed of technological change, companies are relying heavily on their research and development (R&D) functions to accelerate innovation.
It’s widely acknowledged that businesses thrive when employees work to their strengths. In fact, people who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged in their role. But studies show that only 15% of employees feel engaged with their work.
In organizations where R&D is a focus, this is especially important. Today, several different factors are causing R&D budgets to be driven down, meaning these departments are being asked to achieve more with the same or fewer resources. However, many organizations are finding that 39% of their knowledge workers have problems with document management. These tasks are taking R&D professionals away from working on what they specialize in, which significantly reduces efficiency and productivity in a laboratory environment.
So, how can R&D scientists and teams be more productive? We’ve put together some tips to help businesses free up employees’ time, so that they can focus on their strengths and get back to working on their true passions.
