A report on how to address the growing tech gap between the C-suite and the next generation workforce

SUMMARY

This Samsung report which explores how the new generation works and is disrupting traditional working ways, reveals that by 2020 around 50% of the global workforce will be working remotely.

The young generation is referred to in this document as the next generation achievers. These younger employees are highly mobile and networked and change between employers more than the average worker. The young staff is always connected and contactable, the paper explains. Being interrupted is not an issue for them, because they don’t see tasks such as answering a phone call, or sending an email as an interruption. However, companies need to understand that if the younger generation of workers has to answer a call out of traditional office hours they will also expect a similar attitude from their firms if they need for instance to do something personal during office hours. The report also shows that millennials are less likely to be impressed by senior executives.

The study found that 40% of the next generation achievers think that their organization's digital capabilities are not good enough, which cannot be undermined as in the long run they will move to another company that offers better technology.

According to this Samsung research, there are two types of businesses. Traditional organizations with flat or low productivity, that promote presenteeism and where employees are unhappy about the lack of good technology which affects their work. Modern companies, on the other hand, are very flexible. An interesting trend that has emerged in the last few years is how small non-tech companies - including artisan furniture makers or organic farms - have made the most of technology and used it to expand and to have a much more efficient business. This type of company is often very productive, therefore it will have no inconvenience in offering employees more freedom than in traditional companies - like being able to work remotely, at any time, longer holidays, etc. These companies are also more productive because employees have better technology to perform their jobs, the report states.

Having the right technology also means being able to work with colleagues that might not be physically together, the research adds. However, due to the tech gap, many executives do not acknowledge that social media is second nature to digital natives when it should be seen as positive and a contributor to the company's productivity, the paper adds.
