Do your staff have low tech skills and feel ashamed?

Do your staff have low tech skills and feel ashamed?

Many employers may assume that Gen Z and Millennial employees are proficient in technology, but this is not always the case. This assumption is causing some employees to feel ashamed of their lack of tech skills.

Although young workers may be familiar with technologies such as Snapchat, TikTok, and Minecraft, they may not possess the necessary skills for success in the professional environment.

A recent study revealed that a high proportion of employees aged 18 to 29 (20%) feel they are being judged when they encounter technical issues at work, as opposed to only 4% of employees aged 40 or older.

One potential solution could be to improve training for the entire team, not just for new hires or young colleagues. Some members of Gen Z may have begun their careers during the pandemic, and thus may have never worked in a non-digital setting, especially if they are working remotely or in a hybrid role.

Whole-team training can not only address any skill deficiencies but also boost the confidence of new team members.

Another factor to consider is the availability of tools and equipment for your team, particularly if they are working remotely.

Workers with less disposable income, particularly younger ones, may be less likely to voice their difficulties with home office equipment due to financial constraints.

Periodic check-ins with employees, especially those working remotely, can greatly impact their motivation, efficiency, and morale. Address any concerns, whether major or minor, to foster a more positive work environment and ultimately improve overall company performance.
