Seismic Announces The Generation Enablement Report: The Rise of Enablement's Influence; Finds Enablement Boosts Job Satisfaction and Efficiency Across the Four Generations in Today's Workforce


Seismic, the global leader in enablement, today released the findings of its new Generation Enablement Report: The Rise of Enablement's Influence. Hundreds of business leaders were surveyed to understand their enablement strategies, challenges, and go-to-market (GTM) processes. The survey explores how attitudes and actions vary across Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z. And while opinions differ on adoption, use, and effectiveness, one thing is clear: enablement's influence is growing worldwide, and so is that of its leaders.

According to the report, 93% of enablement technology users say that the desire for strategic, effective enablement has increased over the last three to five years. And it's no wonder why: 85% agree the technology is integral to weathering difficult economic times. Not to mention, 89% of enablement technology users say it gives their team a competitive advantage, and 88% say it enhances their job satisfaction.

Despite these benefits, sentiment toward adopting new technologies varies by generation. In particular:

"In an era defined by rapid technological advancement and evolving workplace dynamics, the demand for enablement continues to skyrocket," said Paige O'Neill, Chief Marketing Officer, Seismic. "No matter the generation, it is clear enablement holds the keys to the most significant challenges we see today: engaging customers, scaling GTM teams, adopting new tech, improving productivity, and integrating AI-powered workflows. Moreover, the data in our latest report shows that enablement helps bring people together and is crucial for fostering an agile, innovative workforce."

The report also indicates that enablement continues to explode in usage and investment, with the majority (89%) of respondents using enablement technology at work. While sales and marketing executives rely more on enablement tech compared to other departments, with usage at 64% and 58% respectively, this technology is no longer reserved only for those teams ? nearly all (97%) surveyed companies using enablement tech have deployed it across multiple departments. This trend is expected to intensify in the coming years, as 79% of respondents plan to allocate additional funds to expand enablement programs and functions, while 59% aim to implement enablement tools in additional departments.

"Technology, enablement or otherwise, is only as good as its adoption," said Patricia Peral, Senior Director of GTM Enablement, Beeline. "As enablement leaders, one of our core responsibilities is to ensure that those who we expect to benefit from any new technology understand both how to use it, and the value of using it ? no matter their generation. Additionally, we must ensure that we enable on tools not only at launch, but continuously, as people learn and adopt at different times in their journey."
