It’s no secret that mobile use amongst consumers is on the rise, but a recent infographic published by [x]cube labs shows an astounding jump in mobile usage among employees in the last year alone. Statistics cited in the infographic state that smartphone usage for work jumped from 69% in 2010 to 91% in 2011. One of the top types of mobile employees noted is the mobile information worker: workers who travel frequently but needs to stay in touch with the office through email and collaboration tools (e.g. financial services professionals, banking executives, consultants, etc.). Within the mobile information worker sector, the percentage of the total workforce is predicted to jump from 24% in 2010 to 30% in 2012. See below for the full infographic.
