Workers say computer more important than management:
- According to new research, many workers think their computers are more useful than their bosses.
The survey, conducted by research firm Taylor Nelson Sofres in the United Kingdom for Fujitsu Services, found that employees rank IT systems as the most useful thing in their offices, garnering 25% of the vote. Managers came in second, with only 19%. What’s more, employees say they just can’t live without IT: 38% of all workers would refuse to work as hard if their systems crashed, and 15% would leave the office early.
“People are finally seeing the value of their computer and can’t imagine life without it,” says Marjorie Brody, president of human-resources consulting firm Brody Communications.
