People working in graduate IT jobs could be interested to hear that newer technologies adopted by the younger generations are now finding their way into standard working practices, it is being claimed.
Mobile media firm 3 UK maintains the likes of instant messaging and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) are new methods of communications picked up by younger workers, which can save firms money.
Renato Bottini, head of business at the firm, said the new technologies adopted by younger generations are of great benefit especially to small businesses.
"When you have four million small businesses with nine million employed across the UK, we need to make sure that those people are productive and effective and save themselves the most money they can," he added.
According to research carried out by the organisation published yesterday (August 27th), Brits try and stay on top in the workplace by making sure they are always contactable via email or phone.
It found 14 per cent believe it is "essential" to be contactable because they want to feel in control of their work duties. The same amount felt it was important so they can deal with client requests at any time.
