Workers that are
given technological devices such as BlackBerrys and mobile phones
as part of their job are putting in an extra 20 hours per year,
according to new research.
The study was undertaken by secretarial and office support recruitment consultancy Office Angels has revealed that
40 per cent of respondents were glad to receive the technology,
despite the fact that they are essentially giving back holiday
Some 41 per cent stated that such devices ensured they made the
most of their time spent at work, which may interest graduates considering flexible working.
Additionally, one in seven viewed BlackBerrys as a stress reducing
Commenting on the issue, David Clubb, managing director of Office
Angels, said: "It's important that you maintain a work/life balance
and keep work in perspective.
"Occasionally we all need to work outside of normal hours, but this
should really be the exception not the rule. Be disciplined about
whether you really need to log-on."
