The Digital Divide in the Workplace
A 23 year old recent college graduate probably can’t remember a time without the internet. For her, there have always been voicemail and portable video games, and it’s always been possible to get a computer small enough to fit into a backpack. A 53 year old saw the first calculator small enough to fit into your pocket developed while in high school, and the first primitive word processors were introduced by graduation time. What do these two have in common? Their workplace. This Wednesday we’ll take a look at the technology gap that can exist between workers of different ages & skill levels, and how companies can help them work together effectively.
