Your Team Has an Expensive Problem…

Remote work, high staff turnovers and patchy onboarding means team knowledge loss is at an all time high.

We’ve all experienced the headache of organisational knowledge-loss. It’s the painful experience of searching for internal knowledge that should be easy to find. Or the lost know-how whenever a key team members quits.

Knowledge loss is really expensive…

Microsoft dug into the knowledge-loss problem and discovered that an average employee loses 11% -14% of their time just to searching for and recreating existing business knowledge. That’s the equivalent of 7 extra weeks of work a year, per employee. The rise in remote working has only amplified the problem, removing the option for workers to swing by a colleagues desk to ask for help or guidance.

How teams are impacted

At WorkPilot we performed our own research uncovering a range of common problems experienced by employees, including:

  • Important knowledge is usually siloed within employee’s minds
  • Losing a key team member means losing key knowledge
  • Poor work handovers negatively impact team performance
  • Poor employee onboarding negatively impacts team productivity
