New Survey from Elastic Shows Finding Business-Critical Content is a Significant Problem in a Remote Work Environment
Research Reveals 60% of Employees Spend More
Time Looking for Content and Documents than Sending Emails
Elastic (NYSE: ESTC) (“Elastic”), the company behind
Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, today announced new survey
results that show office professionals at primarily remote
workplaces are having difficulty finding the business-critical
content they need during their workday, reducing productivity and
taking time away from more important, priority activities.

The survey of 1,000 U.S.-based office professionals, conducted
by Wakefield Research on behalf of Elastic, found that 60% of
respondents spend more time digging for documents than they do
replying to messages or emails. This staggering percentage
highlights one of the most common issues that America’s
professional workforce faces: Where is that file?
As employees adjust to blended work environments, or shift
completely to full-time work-from-home positions, they’re forced to
reconcile their file management issues. In fact, nearly 50% of
survey respondents said they’d rather have all their files
organized than have a dedicated workspace in their home.
The need for better business content management also adds to
employees’ daily stressors. Survey data showed that 81% of
respondents had a hard time finding documents when a boss or client
put them in the hot seat, and 1 in 3 (33%) survey respondents said
they frequently have issues finding the documents they need when
asked for them.
Businesses are grappling with managing their workplace content
organization and search systems. Nearly 3 in 5 survey respondents
(58%) say a quick search for files and documents is a top-three
problem to solve to support remote work in the future — including
nearly 1 in 5 (18%) who rank it as the number one issue to solve
for. And, 41% of upper management office workers say quick file
search is the top problem to solve for their employees.
