technology and the human touch.

With technology having an increasing impact on the way we live, work, and play, this raises the question of how and where to connect to people in real life, in person, face-to-face. Consequently, in this edition of Randstad Workmonitor survey we enquired about the impact of technology on the human touch.

Some of the key findings of this report include:

  • 53% of the employees feel that the use of technology makes them feel less connected to people in the real world.
  • Almost half of the respondents (47%) say technology makes them feel less connected to their co-workers and leads to fewer personal interactions among colleagues.
  • 89% state they feel a face-to-face meeting is the best way to interact with someone. These insights are helpful when introducing new tech solutions to your employees, and helping them to understand how to balance tech and touch in the workplace.
  • In addition, this report contains quarterly recurring observations for: mobility, appetite to change jobs, actual job change and job satisfaction across the globe.
