Workers say future tech use will fuel improvements in the workplace
Sixty-nine percent of survey respondents from 15 countries said their company invested in digital workplace tools in the past year, according to a recent report — and employees are enthusiastic about using the new technology.
In addition to standard technologies such as Wi-Fi and cloud applications, nearly a quarter (24 percent) of organizations invested in digital workplace tools that automate temperature controls and lighting. Twenty-three percent added voice-activated and wireless conference room AV technology.
Ninety-three percent of employees believe greater technology use will lead to improvements in the workplace. Sixty-four percent think without implementing new technology, their organization will risk falling behind the competition.
More than half — 56 percent — believe increased use of digital technology in the future will create a more efficient work environment; 52 percent feel it could help with collaboration.
