-43% of users do not use Teams at all
-19% of remote staff cite isolation & loneliness are problems
Why is Teams usage so low?
We go in to detail about it in our blog here, but here are the basics:
Teams usage is low due to lack of training or showing preference to other collaboration tools like Zoom. To increase your ROI, (return on investment) we advise to encourage your remote staff to use Teams! Perhaps the latest in Teams updates will motivate your remote staff to make the switch and increase their Teams usage? Learn more about that here.
As Teams competes with Zoom and Google for the top remote collaboration tool, Teams has brought on many changes to be more efficient and user friendly. Microsoft is always open to feedback and takes on suggestions to better their products. Training your staff on these changes will benefit your business ROI!
What can you do?
Our biggest piece of advice: PAY FOR WHAT YOU USE and use what you are paying for!
But we also suggest educating yourself on your usage levels. It is easy to lose track of your employees and who is using what on which device. Especially with remote work, which is here to stay.
