Digital transformation: How UK employees feel about it

How UK employees feel about digital transformation

Digital disruption and rising customer expectations are forcing companies to embrace new technologies to gain a competitive advantage. Research recently conducted by KPMG revealed how UK employees feel about digital transformation and its impact at their workplace.

Business and financial services sector leads the charge towards digital transformation

Over 70 percent of the UK workforce agrees that embracing digital transformation is a key priority at their workplace, with the business/financial services sector having the highest proportion of workers (91 percent) prioritising the integration of digital tools.This is followed by those employed in the IT/Telecoms sector (85 percent). While this is a strong signal that companies are prioritising the integration of digital technology, there is a significant difference in the appetite to embrace digital tools across industries and UK regions.

Digital transformation impacts the future of hiring and retaining talents

Top talent is hard to attract and even harder to retain. As companies battle to hire and hoard talented employees, pay packages form only part of the criteria on which people choose their future employers. More and more people in the technology industry prefer to work in a digitally transformed organisation.Therefore, it has never been more important for organisations to implement digital technologies at the workplace. Chris Astley, Cloud Practice Lead at KPMG in the UK, shares why it is important for organisations to embrace this emerging trend in terms of hiring and retaining talents, and what skills are required for digital organisations to be effective.
