Sažetak
Employees’ information needs usually depend on their work tasks and obligations they fulfill within the specific profession which impact their information seeking behavior. This paper presents some main findings from the available studies in which authors mostly explored information seeking of the engineers, scientists, and managers. It also describes the research whose aim was to find out how employees from different occupations seek and use information in their workplace. In the research was used quantitative methodology via an online questionnaire filled out by 553 respondents employed in public or private institutions/companies from eastern Croatia. Research results showed that the majority of the respondents work in the field of education and science and that most of them often seek information to complete their work tasks and to solve problems. Employees mostly use online information sources (Internet) and consult their colleagues or associates to get information in the workplace. Respondents mainly point out that information they find in the workplace is useful to perform the job successfully. Around a third of the respondents indicates that they have difficulties in seeking information, which is related to a large amount of unnecessary information and limited access to quality information. Most of the employees agree that information they use for work should be accurate and reliable and that it is important that information is recent and up to date. The results of this research could be useful to employers in educational or cultural institutions, as well as entrepreneurs from eastern Croatia, and give them the incentive to provide additional information sources to increase their institutions’ business efficiency.
