Industries like supply chain management and healthcare are benefiting from the perception of technological proficiency, while construction is viewed as “the least technologically competent” by workers, according to a new study.
Construction ranked at the bottom of 10 surveyed sectors, according to purchase-to-pay software developer Yooz’s 2023 Technology in the Workplace survey, released on April 26. Construction was bested by the automotive and restaurant industries at No. 8 and No. 9, respectively, and was far below manufacturing, at No. 5. The software and healthcare industries ranked No. 1 and No. 2 respectively.
The report surveyed 600 U.S. professionals with a minimum salary of $50,000 who worked in fields such as healthcare, software and construction. Many were tech-savvy; 64% of all participants said they spent more than half their work day using workplace technologies, with 37% saying they spent more than three-quarters of their day using them.
