Extracts from this document...

Introduction

IMPACT OF ICT ON AN ADULT IN EMPLOYMENT, INCLUDING THE EFFECT ON WORKING STYLE I am going to investigate Stan Chipcate, who works as a wedding planner/clothes designer in Greenford, West London for a huge company called Carrera. He works from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m. and often has to carry on some of the paperwork home as the work load generally gets the better of him. The job can interfere with his social and personal life, if for example, he has to continue working till late in the night and his wife is deprived of having a chance to interact with him.

Since Mr Chipcate has purchased a laptop, he no longer has to go through the hassle of forgetting important files/documents at home or work.
