Abstract

The aim of this study is to compare fresh and old employees’ adoption and agility in technological changes according to their vintage-specific human capital. It is inquired that who are more adopted and agile in technological changes since fresh employees have updated skills and education related to new vintage and old employees have obsolescent skills related to old vintage. Therefore, this study assumes that whether fresh employees with updated skills are more adopted and agile in technological changes or old employees with obsolescent experience. Two questionnaires about adoption and agility are distributed among 324 top level managers in IT companies in Pune-India. In this perception study, the respondents are asked for filling the questionnaires according to their opinion about their fresh and old employees’ adoption and agility in technological changes. The data analyzed through Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test show there is a significant difference between fresh and old employees’ adoption and agility in technological changes. It can be inferred that fresh and old employees’ adoption and agility are needed for a satisfactory technological change. Since both of their vintage-specific human capital is complementary to each other to have an optimal technological change.
