This study focused on assessing the influence of digital technology use on the job productivity of employees in two Cement Factories in Ogun State, Nigeria. A questionnaire was administered on a sample size of 550 administrative workers (350 from Lafarge Cement and 250 from Dangote Cement Factory). The finding further revealed that the use of digital technology has a high influence on job productivity of the employees in areas such as enhancing knowledge sharing (80.0), increase quality of work output (67.5.0%, Dangote; 65.0%, Lafarge), and increase collaboration (60.0%). Also, the study discovered that employees of the two cement factories face certain challenges such as inadequate ICT training (60.0%) and lack of organizational support (60.0%, Dangote; 50.0%, Lafarge) in using digital technologies for job performance. The study recommended that there is a need for embarking on continuous ICT training of the employees and also, the management of the two factories should formulate and implement in-house policies regarding the use of digital technologies for administrative works
