Citrix Cloud & Security Survey Details Canadians Experiences With Technology At Work

Cybersecurity measures are constantly in the news thanks to widescale breaches and new government regulation, but at what cost to employee experience? The Citrix Cloud and Security Survey asked Canadians about their experiences with technology at work and found more than a third of working Canadians say security protocols make it harder for them to do their job remotely. This at a time when technology is supposed to be improving user experience by offering increased mobility and flexibility.

When workers feel technology or security protocols are hindering their work, there are two common results: employees will bypass protocol and use their own device to complete their work, or their productivity will decrease.

Other key findings from the survey include:

  • 92% of employed respondents agree that having an easy and good user experience is important for me both at work and in my personal day-to-day
  • 84% of workers want the technology they use at work to be as easy to use as their personal technology
  • Almost four-in-ten workers say their work place does not make it easy for them to work remotely
