Survey reports executive online usage

Published on .

Almost half of senior executives have access to online services at work, according to a survey commissioned for The New York Times and Doremus & Co., New York. The survey of 245 CEOs, chief financial officers and senior VPs at U.S. companies with sales of more than $250 million found that 84% have a computer on their desk and 43% have online access.

As expected, younger executives are more tech-savvy than their older peers. Of those 45 and younger, 94% have computers on their desks, compared with 80% of the older crowd. Meanwhile, 54% of the younger executives are online, compared with 37% of the older executives.

The most enlightening portion of the study looked at executive use of online services at home. While 75% have home computers and 36% have online services, only 6% report using their home online services most days or every day.
