Cars and trucks are becoming increasingly more important to companies, and they are increasingly driven by technology, according to a new survey of nearly 4,000 employees from Accenture and Equifax.
The survey found that the average employee believes they are better suited to work with technology than with people.
In the survey, employees rated their work-life balance as worse for drivers than employees of any other industry.
The worst-performing employers were transportation companies, which scored worst overall for drivers’ stress, absenteeism and job turnover, and healthcare and education companies, whose drivers were the least likely to meet deadlines.
In fact, drivers were even more likely to quit the job than employees from transportation companies or healthcare and educational companies.
“In the last decade, we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of cars being driven by people, which has made it a lot more stressful for drivers,” said Scott Biederman, vice president for customer experience and technology at Accenture.
“They’re being pushed out of their comfort zones.
They’re being forced to be more responsible and more proactive about their lives.”
Accenture said it’s been testing its own work-place tech initiatives in the past few years, and that the survey is the first in which employees are asked to rate how they work on their own.
Accenture and its clients have also taken steps to better manage their work environments.
The firm introduced a new employee engagement plan in 2016 that aims to make work a priority for its employees.
The company said that employees are now given a choice to either be “pampered” with “more time” by the company or spend time with their family.
It also said it has launched an online survey to see how it’s doing with that.
The companies said that if they can improve the lives of their drivers, the company can improve its work environment as well.
“It’s about making sure that the people that drive are part of the equation, not just driving,” said Biedermansaid.
