IT Management Slideshow: iWorkers: CIOs Are In The Dark About Tech-Savvy Employees
By Dennis McCafferty | Posted 07-07-2010
Who are the "iWorkers"? They're those gadget-juggling, multi-tasking employees who rely upon a host of consumer electronics devices for both work and play. A Unisys-sponsored study of 2,820 tech-savvy workers in 10 countries found that these so-called iWorkers frequently use blogs and social-networking sites for work. CIOs and other top managers are relatively "in the dark" when it comes to their workers' dependence upon these devices and online resources - which it could hurt them when it comes to recruitment, retention and efficiency.
