 Survey: Most Employees Appreciate Flexibility Brought by Technology in Work Life

A survey has revealed that a majority of employees worldwide appreciate the flexibility that technology brings to their work life, but also acknowledge that the same technology causes work to intrude upon their personal lives.

Consulting and technology services company Accenture conducted a global survey of 4,100 professionals across 33 countries to determine attitudes regarding work-life balance and career success.
