Missing files cause 'staff stress'
File sharing could mean employees are happy and less stressed in the workplace, one company has suggested.

According to research by Tower Software, 32 per cent of middle managers have found it difficult to access an employee's files when they are absent. Out of those who encountered problems, 87 per cent claimed a negative effect was the result.

The company noted that workers can become stressed if they cannot locate important emails, files and documents.

Tim King, founder and director at recruitment specialist Matchking, remarked that staff must feel appreciated in their roles.

Employees should be "valued, rewarded and able to do their work with optimum efficiency", he said.

"An unhappy working environment can lead to a higher staff turnover and low staff morale and productivity," he added.

Vice president for Tower Software David Oates commented that most employees do not have the time to spare to look for missing information, which can understandably cause tension.

A recent poll by Jobsite discovered that January is the most popular month to look for a new position.
