Stockholm managers want to work in a more mobile way

Nine out of ten managers in Stockholm think their own organization can and should work in a more mobile manner than today. And they have the possibility to do it: 83 percent of the Stockholm managers polled in the survey said they were satisfied with the technology their companies offered to enable them to work wirelessly.
These are some of the findings in Telia's recent survey "The Mobile Manager".
The survey also showed that 95 percent of the managers in Stockholm completely, often or partly agree with the statement that increased mobility can lead to higher profitability. Just as many said that a mobile working life makes everyone more efficient.
"There is a clear connection between increased mobility and higher profitability. Managers in Stockholm seem to be equipped with good technology for telecommuting, which gives their companies an advantage when competing against enterprises in other parts of Sweden," says Anders Gylder, head of the Large Corporate Customers Segment at TeliaSonera Sweden.
Stockholm managers satisfied with telecommuting technology
In Stockholm, 83 percent of the managers polled in the survey said they were satisfied with the technology their companies offered to enable them to work wirelessly. Only managers in the west of Sweden, in Västra Götaland, were more satisfied (86 percent). In Skåne and Norrland, 75 percent and 76 percent, respectively, are satisfied with the telecommuting technology they use. The average for the country was 81 percent.
Seven out of ten read their e-mail immediately
In the survey, 68 percent of the managers in Stockholm said they read their e-mail immediately, as each message arrives, when they sit in front of their computer. The average is 73 percent for the entire country. Twenty-three percent of the managers surveyed in Stockholm answer their e-mail immediately, compared with 24 percent for Sweden as a whole.
