As many organisations want to support mobile, team-oriented and non-routine ways of working, an increasing number of them are looking for assistance in adopting digital workplace technology. A recent Gartner, Inc. survey concluded that only 7 percent to 18 percent of organisations possess the digital dexterity to adopt new ways of work (NWOW) solutions, such as virtual collaboration and mobile working.
Not surprisingly they found that the youngest age group (18-24) are the most likely adopters of NWOW closely followed by the oldest (55-74). The group that were at the low point of the adoption dip (35-44), potentially feeling fatigued with the routines of life as middle age approaches. They were most likely to report that their jobs are routine, have the dimmest view of how technology can help their work, and are the least interested in mobile work.
