The folks over at Facility Executive just published an article that discusses the gap between employees at “technology laggard” organizations and those at “technology leader” organizations. More specifically, the article addresses the feelings employees experience when using old vs new technology.
The study by Unisys Corporation found that 51% of employees using older technology expressed frustration when doing their jobs compared to only 6% of employees at “technology leader” organizations. Employees that are forced to use “outdated” technology are 450% more likely to want to leave their job and seek employment elsewhere.
With technology becoming more engrained into our daily lives, it makes you begin to wonder when it’s too much; and is being on the leading edge always a good thing? The same study found 39% of those at “technology leaders” believe their jobs could be replaced within the next five years by continued machine automation.
It is certainly an interesting article, feel free to check it out!
