Eight out of 10 employees claim that being trusted to manage their own time and the internet as they wish is more important than pay.
Additionally, a fifth (21 per cent) of employees would turn down a job if it did not allow them access to social networking sites or personal email during work time, according to a survey carried out by software specialists Clearswift.
“This is quite shocking, especially when you consider the recent financial meltdown and the fact that unemployment is still so high,” commented Clearswift chief operating officer Andrew Wyatt.
He said that the trend is most evident among 25 to 35-year olds, a group that has grown up using IT and the internet from a young age.
