To remain competitive in a hyperconnected and remote workplace, businesses have turned to the latest digital technologies to improve employees’ productivity, collaboration and connection to other workers. While these investments are necessary, employees often pay a heavy price in the form of rampant workplace distractions.

This creates an environment where employees spend most of their time on low-value activities and less on their actual job duties.
