In a recent survey by Vanson Bourne and Barco, 1,250 IT decision makers in the US, the UK, France and Germany, were asked which IT problems they encounter in meeting rooms and how these are related to the different age groups in their work force. No need to say, the results are surprising. The youngest generations - Millennials & Generation X’ers - apparently ask for IT assistance more frequently.
Technology pioneer and data scientist Imna Martinez explains: "Millennials, Centennials and some Generation X employees excel at being digitally social. Yet they are 100% mobile driven, lacking the necessary skills to understand how desktop computers connect to other devices or how network infrastructure really works. This explains why they represent the largest employee group requiring IT support around presentation technologies in the workplace.”
