The Federal Workforce in 2020
March 12, 2012
Younger workers have been brought up with an always-on connection to people and information thanks to technology. What impact will this have on the future of your agency workforce?
According to a new report by the Pew Internet and American Life Project and Elon University, it could mean good or bad news, depending on whom you ask.
A survey of 1,021 technology stakeholders and critics found opinions evenly split as to whether younger generations' connectivity could yield a net positive or net negative by 2020. Researchers said young people growing up hyperconnected to each other and the mobile Web will be nimble, quick-acting multitaskers who will do well in some key respects.
