And if you’re one of them, questioning why your optimization initiatives keep failing, discover 3 important facts about business operations and find out for yourself the answer.

Broken processes are lowering the employee retention rate. 

A study by Nintex revealed that the employee retention rate at some US companies is declining due to broken business processes of different categories IT, onboarding, administration, and data management/ sales processes. 

In specific, technology troubleshooting comes first in the top 5 most broken processes, according to 62% of participants, with 25% blaming IT staff for delays in technology-related issues handling. 

55% of surveyed people have difficulty accessing tools and documents that enable good job performance, and 46% of surveyed people suffered from onboarding paperwork.

In the administration department, 57% agreed that the annual performance review system is among the most broken while another 49% thought locating documents is not streamlined.

The workforce conducts an average of 1.4 trillion interactions per day, which equates to 2,800 interactions/day/employee, as reported by Soroco. What’s worth mentioning is that 75% of those are undocumented, unnecessary in the pre-defined operating procedures but always present in the form of work done on chats, documents, emails, etc.

Now, shall we have a look at one of your employee’s work graphs? We can clearly see that the “as-is” process is not as streamlined as the planned one. 

In fact, business leaders spend much time and effort developing efficient processes which only work in the ideal world. In the real world, employees need to perform more unstructured activities, accessing more than 10 applications just to complete one single process (Forrester). 

Though enterprises are fully aware of the importance of optimizing processes, they seem to take the wrong actions. Forrester’s report reveals that up to 72% of businesses choose manual methods to discover their operations, which makes it hard to fix the broken processes. Parts of enterprises only focus on optimizing the processes in plans and simply ignore the “as-is” ones.  

80% of useful business data remains unused. 

According to IDC, businesses have not fully exploited 80% of their data. In fact, they don’t choose to limit themselves to only 20% of available information. The problem is that the remaining 80% is unstructured, comes in different forms, and is hard to be used by computer programs.

Enterprise data contains a treasure trove of unexplored insights. What businesses require is technology solutions to carefully study the available data and processes before implementing any optimization initiatives, including automation.  


A study by Forrester showed that 44% of businesses improve their processes to enhance productivity and unlock real business value, instead of focusing on cost-saving. And technology becomes the key to achieving this goal.
