Graduate workers are becoming increasingly annoyed at malfunctioning office technology, it has been reported.
Anger in the workplace is on the rise, according to research conducted by The TechGuys, with one in five employees hitting their desk in frustration at slow computer functioning.
The study suggests that every year around 40 per cent of workers waste up to 30 hours waiting for computers load, while 56 per cent of workers become irritated by computer inefficiency.
Tim Fairs from The TechGuys says that running an annual health check on a computer can ensure they work "to its optimum".
He said this could allow employees to use the same apparatus over an extended period of time rather than having to change their computer "every two or three years".
