BUSINESSES PREFER LIFE IN THE TECHNOLOGICAL FAST LANE; SURVEY REVEALS ACCEPTANCE OF TECHNOLOGY'S RAPID PACE

 MENLO PARK, Calif., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite warnings from some doctors, sociologists and naysayers that technology has accelerated the pace of business to a dangerous speed, three-quarters (75 percent) of executives polled in a recent national survey said they do not feel that the tempo is excessive.
 The survey was developed by OfficeTeam, a national staffing service specializing in highly skilled temporary office and administrative professionals. It was conducted by an independent research firm, which polled 150 executives from the nation's 1,000 largest companies.
 They were asked: "Do you think that technological advancements in the workplace have quickened the pace of business to an excessive level?" The responses were:
 No -- 75 percent
 Yes -- 24 percent
 Don't know -- 1 percent
 Total -- 100 percent
 "It appears that the vast majority of managers have cleared the biggest hurdle with new technology, which is integrating it into the workplace," said Andrew Denka, executive director of OfficeTeam. "Computers, modems, faxes and similar high-tech tools that have radically transformed the modern office are now commonplace. Administrative staff in particular must be highly skilled in a range of technologies.
 "Change now takes the form of improvements to existing systems with which employees are already comfortable," he added. "It's much easier to adapt to a faster computer than to make the transition from typewriter to computer."
 OfficeTeam is the nation's fastest-growing staffing service placing highly skilled temporary and permanent administrative and office support professionals.
