Microsoft Warns Against “Constant Connectivity”

According to a recent survey by Microsoft, technology can negatively impact an employee’s productivity instead of increase it.

The survey, which was answered by 20,000 European workers from 12 nations, found that only 11.4% felt that they were being highly productive. Most said that the steady stream of emails and messages affected their concentration, while others said that their productivity is being hampered by the technology their employer deployed.

A professor of organisational psychology at the Manchester Business School, Sir Cary Cooper, said that “technostress” can be the result of not following good guidelines on what counts as the productive use of new computer systems or software.
