A lack of IT savoir-faire is causing British office workers to struggle with computers and other office machines, according to a recent poll commissioned by Computeractive.

The survey of 2,000 office workers found that technology was perceived as making life more complicated and many blamed IT devices as a source of their woes.

A quarter blamed office technology for failing to meet deadlines while 28 percent called their IT department up to three times a week.

The survey also revealed some positively perceived contributions of technology.

Forty-two percent found it easier to broach sensitive issues with their colleagues electronically, with 39 percent preferring to cancel a meeting via email and over a quarter (26%) emailing rather than telephoning in sick.
