Here's a study that might just tick off your social network-hating boss. Cisco surveyed of 1,400 students and 1,400 professionals in 14 countries, and found that one in three young people consider the internet to be as essential to their survival.
The respondents, ages 21 to 29, said they value the internet far more than any other type of technology, with only one in 10 saying TV is the most important device they own. Other findings included:
One in three college students and young employees under the age of 30 said would prioritize social media freedom, device flexibility, and work mobility over salary in accepting a job offer.
40 percent of college students and 45 percent of and young employees said they would accept a lower-paying job that had more flexibility with regard to device choice, social media access, and mobility than a higher-paying job with less flexibility.
81 percent want to choose the device for their job - either receiving budgeted funds to buy a work device of their choice or bringing in a personal one in addition to company-issued devices.
Based on the findings, the researchers sought to advise companies against blocking access to Facebook unless they want to risk demotivating their employees.
