As organizations seek digital transformation globally, many employees are often left behind in the process and are simply unaware of how to contribute, a new survey said on Wednesday.

Interestingly, there is still confusion at the top as even 14 percent of CEOs said they don’t know how to get involved with the digital transformation (DX) process, according to the global study by Futurum Research sponsored by software company Pegasystems.

The study revealed that 94 percent of employees surveyed want to be more involved in digital transformation and almost half (44 percent) of the general staff said they simply don’t know how to help.

“This not only disenfranchises some employees, but it can also slow the pace of DX success,” the findings showed.

“Businesses should prioritize the tools and processes that break down operational silos and foster deeper collaboration to ensure all employees come along on this critical journey,” said Don Schuerman, CTO, Pegasystems.

The global study surveyed executives, technology leaders, and general employees from over 500 enterprises in North America and Europe on the role company culture plays in driving DX success.

A majority of business decision-makers (68 percent) believe that improving customer experience is the most important DX driver, followed closely by automating existing processes (67 percent) and improving or updating processes (65 percent).
