New research has revealed that graduates entering into the workforce would like to see more up-to-date communications technologies in the office in order to be able work to the best of their abilities.
A new study by communications company Plantronics discovered that graduates feel technologies used outside of the professional environment such as instant messaging and webcams ought to be implemented in the workplace.
Some three-quarters of respondents felt a webcam and instant messaging applications would allow them to respond more quickly and effectively to clients and suppliers.
Paul Clark, general manager at Plantronics UK, commented: "Graduates have grown up with newer forms of communication and we are not just talking email and mobile phones.
"By embracing IM and hands-free, or even providing this new workforce with greater flexibility in where and when they work, employers can maximise the potential of the young talent they have."
