The Summer 2024 issue of Technology Record is out now and available to view free of charge in digital format.

According to Microsoft and LinkedIn’s 2024 Work Trend Index report, employees are overwhelmed with work, with 68 per cent struggling to meet the pace and volume of their work and 46 per cent feeling burned out. In this issue’s cover story, we look at how Microsoft’s portfolio of generative AI products and tools is automating basic processes to help employees save time at work and focus on higher-value tasks.

Organisations are also under pressure to redress gender imbalances within their traditionally male-led corporate and civic infrastructures, notes our executive editor Andy Clayton-Smith in his foreword. In a special-focus roundtable, women in technology discuss how they are joining forces to break the glass ceiling.
