These statistics not only show that people require connectivity and access at all times, the findings show that people feel that they work better alone. The information above tells me that many people that their work environment is not conducive to getting things done. This in contrast to how many employers would like us to operate. Many companies believe that working in teams makes everyone more productive. More specifically, many companies believe that working together in a room makes everyone more productive. I understand that the survey sample only consisted of 5,000 respondents, but I believe that is enough for companies to take notice. Some companies have already recognized that people want to collaborate, not team-build, and have adopted a more effective to work. Other companies have either not recognized this shift or ignored it. But like so many changes in our culture, advances in technology may be the catalyst. For those in the community...

I've noticed a disparity between the opinions of folks at different levels in the organization over what is and is not more productive.
I'd like to see the demographic breakdown on the answers. I suspect that young "gen-mobile" folks think being mobile makes them more productive, and that "gen-stationary" folks think being all together in the office makes them more productive.
Some study measuring productivity and/or efficience would be nice to stand up next to the opinion poll.
