Millennials are feeling  more technology stress than Generation Xers and Baby Boomers, a workplace survey has found.

The Snapshot of Australian Workplaces, a national survey of 1000 workers, by human resource firm Reventure, found technology stress was impacting about 54 per cent of Millennial workers compared with  47 per cent of Gen X and 37 per cent of Baby Boomers.

It found 65 per cent of workers agreed that the impact of new and emerging technologies is affecting the way their work was defined and accomplished.

More than 40 per cent of workers are relying on technology to perform over 75 per cent of their work. Gen X claims the highest percentage of work done using technology.
