Government employees not keen on Internet

Government employees are not as keen about the Internet as their counterparts in the private sector, according to a recent survey by Kelly Services Inc, an international recruitment agency.

The survey found that only 53% of Government workers regularly use the Internet compared to 80% of workers in the private sector.

The survey also found that 61% of Government workers think the Internet can improve their productivity. This is in contrast with the average 72.5% of the private sector who said yes.

According to Kelly Services, one of the reasons why civil servants are not keen on the Internet is because e-mail is still not regarded as legally binding in most instances.
