Attitudes of the digital technology workforce survey 

We are in really strange and interesting times. 2 years of Covid lockdowns and now the flow on effect into 2022 of a tight labour market, skill shortages, high levels of illness, and employers grappling with how to best support and retain staff in these Covid (or post-Covid) times.  

This survey is open to anyone who identifies as a digital technology worker. That means you have a digital role or a technology role. You might work for a government department, a logistics firm, a retail business, a software as a service startup, a creative agency, for a data services company, or a hardware manufacturer.  

This survey is all anonymous, we won’t ask for your contact or other personal details and will release all results in aggregate. We are asking everyone who completes one or more of the small topic-based surveys to also complete a short set of questions on your demographics - again anonymously - so we can gain some additional insight into who works in digital technology roles.

Tell us about your first Computer! 

As a fun little exercise, we wanted to capture some information about the very first computer that you each had. Including any memories fond (or otherwise) that you have of the device, or maybe still have if you've kept it running..

We'll be sharing some of the exciting devices and entertaining anecdotes back to the membership in the near future, with the intention of capturing a small segment of New Zealand's history with the personal computer!

Show us what you've got (or used to have..!) here!
