Information Overload in a Digital World
Information overload is something not just employers are facing, but it’s becoming a problem in people’s everyday lives as well. When you’re dealing with too much information, it impacts your ability to make decisions and remain productive, but with a constant barrage of emails, communication, social media and more, it’s difficult to avoid.
The human brain is designed to process and retain information in very particular ways, and that doesn’t necessarily change or speed-up in the face of changing technology. Many of us are finding that despite how much knowledge and information we have access to in our modern times, it’s actually harder than ever before to retain it. That makes us slower when it comes to decision making, and it can be a big detriment for employees.
